INDIANAPOLIS -- Curtis Granderson is headed to the Yankees, but the Tigers also appear to have made out well in the first big trade of the winter meetings.

The Yankees, Tigers and Diamondbacks have completed a complicated three-team deal that also sends All-Star pitcher Edwin Jackson to the Diamondbacks, sources told CBSSports.com. Granderson goes to New York, Jackson and Ian Kennedy (from the Yankees) go to Arizona, and the Tigers get four players who could all open the 2010 season on their major-league roster.

The Tigers get outfielder Austin Jackson and left-handed reliever Phil Coke from the Yankees, and get pitchers Max Scherzer and Daniel Schlereth from the Diamondbacks.

"I like every one of the four," said one rival major-league executive who has seen all the players. "What a haul."

The Tigers, who play in a city with a struggling economy and are saddled with several bad contracts, begin a transformation that they hope will keep them competitive in 2010, while setting them up to be in much better shape in 2011.

In Granderson, the Yankees get a left-handed hitting outfielder who some scouts believe could approach 40 home runs in Yankee Stadium. They would lessen the need to re-sign Johnny Damon, or put a lot more pressure on Damon to accept a shorter and cheaper deal if he wants to remain.

The Tigers get a starter to replace Edwin Jackson (Scherzer), and an outfielder to replace Granderson (Austin Jackson).

The Diamondbacks get a more proven starting pitcher (Edwin Jackson), who has 27 wins the last two years and could thrive in the National League West.

The talks were first reported by Foxsports.com.

Forget trading Granderson. You could get the most value you're gonna get out of Inge right now, if you trade him now. His ankles are too sore from carrying around all that money anyway. Keep Granderson, trade Inge, get Zimmerman. I'm reluctant to give away this golden nugget for free, so take it, run with it, you don't even have to say Thank You to me.
