Yanks, Tigers, D-Backs discuss blockbuster trade
UPDATE (12:06 am) — It appears as though the Yankees were the organization that stalled in their decision, which has led to the current impasse. According to Joel Sherman, the Arizona-Detroit talks “feel dead,” because the Yankees believe the prospect cost is “too high.” Sherman goes on to note that the Yankees are still very interested in Granderson, however, and will likely continue to negotiate through Thursday.
11:21 pm — Via a Rosenthal and Morosi update, we learn that the Diamondbacks would receive Ian Kennedy and the Tigers would receive Austin Jackson, Phil Coke and Michael Dunn. The Yankees would also get prospects from the Diamondbacks.
11:08 pm — The Yankees are never boring, that’s for sure.
From Ken Rosenthal (FOX Sports):
The Yankees, Diamondbacks and Tigers have discussed a three-way trade that would send Tigers center fielder Curtis Granderson to New York and right-hander Edwin Jackson to Arizona, major-league sources say.
The other players in the trade are not known, and the talks are at an impasse, according to one source. The proposed deal is being pushed by the D-Backs, but was rejected by at least one of the other two teams, the source says.
I wonder who rejected the proposal? I’ll have more on this throughout the night.
