Ken Davidoff of Newsday reports that the Randy Johnson trade is "all but finalized." He says Johnson has agreed to the one-year extension and only minor differences remain.
The deal still might take another two or three days to complete. Arizona still needs to review Johnson’s physical. Reliever Luis Vizcaino will definitely be included, but the teams have not agreed on a young pitcher.
The North County Times reported on Tuesday that the Padres were trying to slip in with an offer including Scott Linebrink. Today the Newark Star-Ledger found a source that indicated San Diego could still be in the mix.
