INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A person familiar with the negotiations says the Yankees, Tigers and Diamondbacks are nearing agreement on a three-team trade that would send star center fielder Curtis Granderson from Detroit to New York.

The World Series champion Yankees would trade right-hander Ian Kennedy to Arizona, and lefty reliever Phil Coke and outfield prospect Austin Jackson to Detroit, the person said on condition of anonymity because the trade was not yet final.

Detroit would deal pitcher Edwin Jackson to the Diamondbacks, and Arizona would send pitchers Max Scherzer and Daniel Schlereth to the Tigers.

The teams are still working on technical aspects of the trade, the person said Tuesday, including checking medical records.
