Edwin Jackson and/or Adam Kennedy to Arizona?

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement. reports, "The Tigers are close to trading right-hander Edwin Jackson, according to major-league sources. The identity of the team is not known, but both the Diamondbacks and Mariners are known to have interest. The discussions have been more serious with Arizona than Seattle, according to one source."

The same story also goes on to say, "The Mets and Diamondbacks are the teams showing the most interest in free agent Adam Kennedy, major-league sources say, viewing him as a potential starter at second base." However, Nick Piecoro poo-poohs the latter report: "We’re told this isn’t true. A year ago this time, Kennedy would have made sense. Not now. They’ve got too many holes with too little money to be worrying about second base." Piecoro also reported earlier today that Arizona were "not close" to acquiring Jackson.

The official line from Josh Byrnes is that Arizona is "spending time in trade discussions with various clubs at this time," but Byrnes wouldn't go into any specifics such as players.
