WBZ: Red Sox acquire Indians' Victor Martinez

UPDATE, 3:23: Tony Massarotti confirms Bryan Price is part of the deal.

According to WBZ, the Red Sox have officially acquired Indians catcher/first baseman Victor Martinez.

Roche says it's believed the Sox are giving up pitcher Justin Masterson and Class A pitcher Nick Hagadone.

No more news than this. If it's only Masterson and Hagadone, I'm not so sure. It's a lot better than trading Clay Buchholz, but like we've said for weeks now, Martinez wasn't the guy we want. I like Hagadone's potential, so I'm not 100 percent sold on this trade.

More when it breaks.
