The Yankees have balked at including Joba Chamberlain in the proposed deal for Dan Haren, but talks are continuing with the Diamondbacks.

The likelihood of a deal took a hit when Arizona asked that the Yankees include Chamberlain and pay the full $33 remaining on Haren's deal.

The Yankees are on Haren's approved list, can afford the right-hander and remain interested, if the price comes down.

At times in the talks, the Diamondbacks have tried to attach reliever Chad Qualls (1-4, 12 saves, 7.86 ERA) or catcher Chris Snyder (.233, 10 HRs, 32 RBIs in the deal with the Yankees.

Arizona is looking to pare its payroll. While the Yankees are looking for bullpen help, they view Qualls negatively based on his poor season.

The Yankees have offered pitcher Ivan Nova, pitching prospect Zach McAllister and other prospects for Haren.

The Phillies, Tigers, Cardinals, Twins and White Sox and others are believed to have shown interest in Haren.

The Tigers and Twins are thought to be on his 12-team no-trade list.
