Beckett and Lowell going to Boston

The Red Sox and Marlins reached a preliminary agreement Monday night on a trade that would send Josh Beckett and third baseman Mike Lowell to Boston for three prospects.

Florida would get touted shortstop Hanley Ramirez and minor league pitchers Anibal Sanchez and Jesus Delgado in the deal, which was pending physicals, according to a baseball official who requested anonymity because the trade was yet to be finalized.
