An exchange of medical records is complete, clearing the way for Granderson to join the Yankees on Wednesday afternoon. The trade is the biggest transaction so far this offseason, a deal in which the Tigers will part with two All-Stars — Granderson and starting pitcher Edwin Jackson — in an effort to build a more cost-effective club.

The exchange of players is as follows, according to sources:

  • The Yankees receive Granderson from the Tigers.

  • The Diamondbacks receive Jackson from the Tigers and right-hander Ian Kennedy from the Yankees.

  • The Tigers receive center fielder Austin Jackson and left-hander Phil Coke from the Yankees; and right-hander Max Scherzer and left-hander Daniel Schlereth from the Diamondbacks.
