[MLB] Big Unit and Yankees agree on extension

Recommended Posts

Randy Johnson and the Yankees have reached a tentative agreement on a two-year extension worth $32 million, ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reports.

The agreement is a precursor for the Big Unit to be traded from Arizona to New York. Commissioner Bud Selig has already approved the deal.

The five-time Cy Young Award winner has a $16 million salary in 2005, of which $6 million is deferred at 2 percent interest.

The trade calls for the Diamondbacks to receive pitchers Javier Vazquez and Brad Halsey, catcher Dioner Navarro and $9 million.

All involved players will have to pass physicals for the trade to be finalized.

Arizona also has a preliminary agreement in place to trade Navarro and pitching prospect William Juarez to Los Angeles for outfielder Shawn Green and $8 million. That deal is contingent on the Diamondbacks and Green agreeing to an extension.

Also, since Bernie Williams currently wears #51, Johnson has to change his jersey number. Once the trade is done, they will show his new number.
