Looks like the deal is done - Link
Yankees get - Curtis Granderson from Tigers
D'Backs get - Ian Kennedy from Yankees, and Edwin Jackson from the Tigers
Tigers get - Daniel Schlereth and Max Scherzer from the D'Backs, and Austin Jackson and Phil Coke from the Yankees.
I didn't think an agreement would be reached on this one quite as easily, and is likely to be the biggest trade of the winter meetings. The Yanks gave up an awful lot, is my first reaction. But they can afford to, like they can afford to overpay for free agents.
Daniel Schlereth (Stats) is a LHP, drafted in 2008 1st round- looks like he was being treated as a potential closer by AZ, made the majors in a season, with good stats in the minors in pretty much every level.
Max Scherzer (Stats) is the key piece in the deal IMO. I know a lot of commenters both on MLBTR and here like Scherzer a lot. Personally, I think Kennedy (Stats) will be pretty good- the pressure in NY is probably hard to deal with. My guess is the D'Backs felt getting two starters who could contribute on a similar level to Scherzer was worth it. At this point, it looks like a m-eh deal for the D'Backs, but my feeling is it'll work well for them.
The Tigers- WOW! Austin Jackson (Stats) should go a long way to replacing Granderson. I bet he starts 2010 on the roster for the Tigers, and will put up comparable numbers to Granderson (might be a little worse off in the slugging dept, but you'd expect the power to start appearing sooner rather than later). Granderson, btw, should thrive in the lefty paradise for the Yankees. Expect him to top the 30HR performace.
They didn't lose anything in getting Scherzer for Jackson, with more upside, I think. Schlereth should do better than his rookie 1.65 WHIP performance with Arizona, and Coke should be solid in the pen (anyone think there might be an attempt to move Coke back to starting?)
Overall, I think a great trade for all 3 teams.
