Dan Haren The Yankees may add to their rotation after all, as the team is on the verge of landing Dan Haren, FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi report .

According to the report, the Diamondbacks are telling teams they are "in advanced negotiations with one club," citing major-league sources.

Among other interested teams based on several reports include the Dodgers, Tigers, Twins, Phillies and Cardinals.

Although the Yankees were dangling catching prospect Jesus Montero along with second baseman David Adams and right-hander Zach McAllister for the Mariners' Cliff Lee. The Diamondbacks would likely be looking for more pitching and it's unlikely Montero is available.

Haren is under contract through 2012 plus a club option for 2013, so it's not as if the team needs to get rid of him right now. However, the Diamondbacks are looking to slash payroll and Haren will make $12.75 million in each of the next two seasons and the team option for 2013 is for $15.5 million with a $3.5 million buyout.

UPDATE: Ed Price of FanHouse reports the Cardinals are out of the running for Haren, and FanHouse's Frankie Piliere tweets the Yankees' Ivan Nova is the key piece for the Diamondbacks in a trade with New York.

Let me guess, they will get the next Mantle in return?.  No one ever wins on these deals with the Yanks............

Report: Yankees close to landing Haren

I mispoke.  It wasn't what the Yankees had offered, it was what the DBacks were asking for from the Yankees compared to what they accepted from the Sox.  The Dbacks wanted Soriano, Nick Johnson, and some touted minor league pitching prospects from the Yankees.  Compare that to the garbage they actually accepted from the Sox.

The Yankees offered up ARod's package, but it was too shriveled from years of steroids and HGH so the Diamondbacks turned it down.  Fast forward a couple years, Madonna shows up and she is more shriveled than ARod's package to give him the confidnece he needed to finally drive in some runs in 2009.  The rest is history.

Maybe the DBacks feel the owe the Yankees for when they gave away Schilling the Red Sox when the Yankees had offered a better package.

and it's unlikely Montero is available

Great. So they're going to give the Yankees an established frontline starter (even though he hasn't pitched like one this year) and not even get their one super-prospect in return? I don't care if they acquire half the pitchers in the Yankees minor league system, can Arizona really not find a better deal with anyone other than the freaking Yankees or is there some offical rule that says the Yankees must rip off a stupid team for their best player at least once a year?
