Here’s the big one. According to a post on Twitter, Bob Nightengale of USA Today says:

The Red Sox are about to acquire Victor Martinez from Indians.

– Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse confirms the Nightengale report citing a source that says a Martinez deal “looks good.”

- In a post to Twitter, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Indians wanted a major-league ready pitcher in return for Martinez, “so gut is that Buchholz must be in this.”

– Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com
writes, “the Red Sox did not include either right-hander Clay Buchholz
nor right-hander Daniel Bard in the deal, according to a source.”

- We’re slowly piecing this deal together, as Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports that LHP Nick Hagadone, a 2007 sandwich-pick, and RHP Justin Masterson would be part of the trade.

- Jon Heyman of SI.com writes that the deal has been agreed to and that Buchholz is not in it.

Update: Nightengale, the original source, says the deal is done. Martinez is headed to Boston.
