It won’t be today as both GMs are traveling, but the Yankees could have Mike Cameron early tomorrow.

The on-again, off-again deal is back on with the Brewers agreeing to take Melky Cabrera in return for Cameron. The question is whether the Yankees do the deal straight up and get no money in return or include a second-tier pitching prospect) and get some cash back.

The better the prospect, the more money the Yankees get. That could take a bit to figure out. But it sounds like this deal will get done.

UPDATE, 6:14 p.m.: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel quotes Brewers GM Doug Melvin saying the deal is a “strong possibility.”

This could be the lineup:

Damon LF
Jeter SS
Nady RF
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui DH
Posada C
Cameron CF
Cano 2B
Swisher 1B

Or something like that.
