Jaime Garcia is about to be traded from the Twins to the Yankees, according to multiple reports. 

Jon Heyman was the first to report the pending deal, which has not been finalized. ESPN's Buster Olney says the teams are "at the 1-yard line," meaning there's very little that could keep the deal from being finalized. 

What the Twins will receive from New York is unclear. 

Minnesota traded with Atlanta for Garcia on Monday. He made one start and led the Twins to a win over the A's on Friday by tossing 6 2/3 innings while allowed three runs on eight hits.
