Anyway, Sports Illustrated 's Jon Heyman tweets the deal is close, and Orioles general manager Andy MacPhail notes the Orioles are "making progress" with the Diamondbacks in acquiring the third baseman.
Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic tweets RHP David Hernandez is expected to be in the deal and RHP Kam Mickolio is a "strong possibility."
As far as the Orioles being close to signing first baseman Derrek Lee, MLB.com's Britt Ghiroli says MacPhail and another source said those reports are "extremely premature."

UPDATE : The deal is all but done, as multiple sources are all reporting that Hernandez and Mickolio are in the deal and on the verge of completion. ESPN's Buster Olney says all that is remaining are the players passing physicals.
UPDATE : The Diamondbacks are replacing Reynolds with Melvin Mora for one year as Steve Gilbert of MLB.com . Hardly an inspired choice -- especially since Baltimore jettisoned Mora as its starting 3B after 2009.
