The deal sent righty Josh Beckett, outfielder Carl Crawford, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and infielder Nick Punto to the Dodgers in exchange for first baseman James Loney, infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr. and right-handed pitcher Allen Webster. The deal saved the Red Sox more than $250 million in future payroll.

De La Rosa and Sands were widely reported as players to be named, but they could not be transferred at the time.

To make room on the 40-man roster, catcher Guillermo Quiroz was designated for assignment.
