The Boston Red Sox will listen to trade offers for reigning AL MVP Mookie Betts, according to ESPN’s Joon Lee.

However, Lee mentions that the ask “will be high” from the Red Sox. They reportedly want multiple top prospects as part of any potential trade to fuel a rebuild of the farm system.

Betts, 26, is slashing .293/.391/.527 with 28 home runs and 78 RBI in 144 games this season. He has one year remaining on his current contract with Boston.
