Red Sox and Dodgers fans will be fixated on the three big names headed to Los Angeles in this weekend’s deal, but Boston is also losing another solid team member in the epic trade.
Nick Punto, who has filled in admirably all over the roster as the Red Sox fought injuries this year, is also part of the trade package the Red Sox and Dodgers are rumored to be completing.
Punto appeared to confirm the rumors Saturday afternoon, tweeting a thanks to Red Sox Nation as he and his Boston cohorts prepared for a new destination.
Thanks to all the fans of #Red Soxnation, also thankyou to all my teammates, coach’s and staff.
