Yanks-Mariners Moving Closer on Washburn Deal

Sports Illustrated Jon Heyman is reporting tonight that a deal may be close sending Jarrod Washburn to the Yankees. The Yankees have agreed to take on Washburn's contract which includes $10.35 million for 2009. The Mariners will receive one minor leaguer in exchange for unloading Washburn's salary. Washburn has indicated a willingness to waive his no-trade clause and move cross country to make the deal happen.
