Red Sox Insider Sean McAdam was first to report that Adrian Gonzalez wasn't the only claim put in by the Dodgers: they also claimed Josh Beckett on trade waivers.

He'll have more to come, but for now:

The claim on Beckett very different than Gonzalez. Sox would probably allow claiming team to take him to rid . Not the case w Gonzalez. Sean McAdam(@Sean_McAdam) August 24, 2012

One thing to consider: Thanks to 10-5 rights, Beckett could reject a waiver claim just as he could reject a trade. RedSoxTalk Sean McAdam(@Sean_McAdam) August 24, 2012

Confirmed: It is indeed the Dodgers who have also claimed Beckett. RedSoxTalk Sean McAdam(@Sean_McAdam) August 24, 2012
