Nothing really happened between the Yankees and the Diamondbacks regrading RHP Dan Haren today. That hasn’t stopped the usual suspects from passing along information they’ve heard throughout the day.


Early morning reports

Buster Olney of ESPN tweeted :

To be clear: The Yankees do not value Haren as much as they valued Cliff Lee a couple of weeks ago. They look at Haren as a somewhat risky proposition, because of his performance this year, and they are not willing to take the contract and give up a boatload of prospects. (second tweet ).

Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated tweeted :

yankees willing to include nova, mcallister and 2 prospects for dan haren, will not eat $ and give up joba. still talking.

Heyman also wrote :

yankees would pay the $33 mil left on haren, but they have balked at taking chad qualls, chris snyder, too.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports tweeted :

Yankees not on Oswalt, remain open on Haren. “Would do something pretty significant” to get him, source says.

Bob Klapisch of the Bergin Record tweeted :

Yanks refusing to include Joba in any potential swap for Haren. Talks are ongoing.

Afternoon update

Here is what Olney had this afternoon :

Heard this: No conversations today between Arizona and the Yankees. The NYY scoffed at reports that they were in the lead of the Haren negotiations, because they have never been close to completing a deal to this point. (second tweet ).



It’s interesting that the Yankees won’t include Joba in this deal. Maybe they still really like him. Maybe they are counting on him in the bullpen this year. Maybe they just don’t like Dan Haren that much and think they can get more for Joba.

It does sound like the Yankees might be willing to include Joba in a deal if the D-Backs were willing to include money in the deal to offset the $29 million Haren is guaranteed over the next two years.


It does not sound particularly promising at this point, but there is still a chance. The latest report is that they haven’t talked today, but for all we know they could be discussing a deal right now. We’ll just have to wait and see. If the Yankees can get Haren for a package centered around Nova and McAllister they would be stupid not to take it.
