The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to a deal that will see them acquire Nationals ace Max Scherzer along with All-Star shortstop Trea Turner, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan. CBS Sports HQ's Jim Bowden confirmed the deal that will send four prospects to Washington, including catcher Keibert Ruiz and right-hander Josiah Gray. Earlier on Thursday, the Padres were close to a deal to acquire Scherzer, per Bowden, but that deal was never finalized.
Instead, the reigning World Series champions have pulled one of the biggest trade deadline blockbusters in recent memory. Here's a look at the full, six-player deal:
Dodgers get: RHP Max Scherzer, SS Trea Turner
Nationals get: C Keibert Ruiz, RHP Josiah Gray, OF Donovan Casey, RHP Gerardo Carrillo
