BOSTON -- Boston's Adrian Gonzalez and the Dodgers' James Loney have been scratched from their team's starting lineups as the clubs tried to finalize a major trade.

The Red Sox also were discussing sending pitcher Josh Beckett, left fielder Carl Crawford and infielder Nick Punto to Los Angeles, a baseball official informed of the discussions said Friday night, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcements were made.

Gonzalez was removed from the Red Sox lineup minutes before a game against Kansas City, and Loney was pulled from Los Angeles' lineup against Miami.

Red Sox owners John Henry and Tom Werner, president Larry Lucchino and general manager Ben Cherington did not respond to emails seeking comment.
