The Dodgers, dormant all winter, took a major step in that direction on Tuesday, pulling off the most "right now" move of the Andrew Friedman era by acquiring superstar right fielder Mookie Betts. The Dodgers parted with Alex Verdugo, a talented young outfielder, sent Kenta Maeda, a proven weapon for their rotation and their bullpen, to the Twins, and also agreed to take on a bulk of the $96 million remaining in left-hander David Price's contract -- all, essentially, for one season of a player who might sign elsewhere next offseason.
