RJ Trade Rumours

The New York Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks are getting closer to a deal that would see 43-year-old left-hander Randy Johnson become a Diamondback once again. RJ still makes his home in Arizona and even though they are a mediocre team at best, it has been said that he would prefer to play there.

The Yankees are said to want two D-Back prospects. Dustin Nippert, Micah Owings and Ross Ohlendorf seem like the most probable possibilities. They are all highly touted pitching prospects in Arizona’s very deep system.

Johnson will be expected to sign an extension as soon as the trade happens. If that doesn't happen, the deal could fall apart.

Something should be done soon nonetheless.
