ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yes, Alfonso Soriano might be making a return trip to the Bronx, but don't expect it to happen today.

A source involved in the talks confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com that Yankees GM Brian Cashman and Cubs GM Jed Hoyer are discussing a possible trade that would bring Soriano back to the Yankees, but, the source said, "Nothing is imminent. They jumped the gun a little bit."

The source was referring to a story in a New York paper that said the deal was close to being finalized. "Cashman is talking to the Cubs about Soriano, but he's talking to a lot of other teams, too," the source said. "It's all very premature."

Among the names mentioned as possible trade bait for Soriano is infield prospect David Adams, who struggled with the Yankees earlier this season and is currently in Triple-A.
