PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks were given another 48-hour window to negotiate a contract extension with Shawn Green that would persuade the Los Angeles slugger to waive his no-trade clause.
The Diamondbacks and Dodgers reached agreement Friday night on a revised trade that would send Green to Arizona for catching prospect Dioner Navarro, Diamondbacks general partner Ken Kendrick said.
The commissioner’s office received the request to reopen the negotiating window Friday night, and said the Diamondbacks have until Monday to strike a deal with Green.
The new trade may call for the Dodgers to send the Diamondbacks more money to help Arizona strike a new agreement with Green, but Kendrick would not comment.
