Dustin Nippert Rumors


Yanks, D'Backs Close On Unit?

According to the New York Daily News, the Diamondbacks and Yankees could finish a Randy Johnson trade this weekend.

Arizona will need to talk to Johnson to extend his contract through 2008, pretty much guaranteeing he gets his 300th win as a Diamondback.  The Yankees want one of Dustin Nippert, Micah Owings, and Ross Ohlendorf.  Nippert seems to be the prize of the trio.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are getting closer to signing Doug Mientkiewicz to play first base and could also snag Mark Loretta as a utility infielder.

On the other hand, a source told the Newark Star-Ledger that there's "nothing imminent" on RJ but things could be resolved within a week anyway.
