Deal Imminent for Pirates' Nady

Pirates OF Xavier Nady was pulled in the second inning of tonights game and, according to multiple sources, a deal is imminent. With so many teams interested, it's hard to say at this point who the deal is with. For what it's worth, speculates that it could be the Rays seeing as how minor league SS Reid Brignac is also sitting out tonight. Definitely more to come on this tonight.

Update: Foxsports' Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the deal is with the Yankees and includes Damsaso Marte. the Pirates will receive four minor leaguers-Triple A RHP Ross Ohlendorf, Double AA RHP Phil Coke, George Contos and OF Jose Tabata. Rosenthal says a deal for Jarrod Washburn is also near and that the Mariners have asked him to waive his no-trade rights.

Further Update: The original deal has been amended. Triple A right handers Jeff Karstens and Daniel McCutchen replace Phil Coke and George Contos from the original deal.
