The Los Angeles Dodgers " are being very aggressive " regarding a possible trade for Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor and starting pitcher Betts ' future has been the subject of rumors and speculation ever since Red Sox ownership indicated it planned to stay under the luxury tax in 2020.

According to Bob Nightengale, Los Angeles is dangling star shortstop Corey Seager in an attempt to stay aggressive in trade talks for either Francisco Lindor (and Mike Clevinger) or Mookie Betts.

To say that Seager is an enticing piece would be a grotesque understatement. The 25-year-old is a two-time All-Star and owner of a career .853 OPS. He's also under team control for another two seasons at a fraction of the cost of the two stars he's being used as bait for.

Both the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox would be foolish not to at least consider a trade package headlined by Seager. It's not every day that a team is willing to offer an elite major league player in exchange for another.

The Indians in particular could benefit greatly from acquiring Seager. He'd be the perfect replacement for Lindor at shortstop. As for the Red Sox, they could potentially try him out at second base, a major position of need for them.

Whatever the case may be, the fact that he's even involved in trade discussions proves that the Dodgers are serious in their pursuit of even more superstar talent to help make yet another run at the World Series.

Moving Betts, who is coming off a season with 29 home runs and a .915 OPS, would still reportedly net the Red Sox a top prospect in addition to salary relief. Given the desire of ownership to cut payroll in 2020, offloading Betts and Price’s contracts while obtaining a top prospect could be enough to convince them to move the star outfielder.Related slideshow: The MLB 2010s All-Decade team (Provided by Yardbarker) 1/36 SLIDES © John McCoy/Getty Images The MLB 2010s All-Decade team The second decade of the 'aughts' is in the books, making it a prime time to look back at the players who defined it in Major League Baseball.
