(4:49 PM ET) — Quotes from Jennings, Deal not finished — Scott Gelman, Fish Stripes

1) “I’ve read and heard the same things you guys have but I have not heard anything official,” Jennings said. “Until we get something official, right now it’s just a lot of talk. I am waiting to hear from [President of Baseball Operations] Michael Hill to see if something has been finalized.”

2) “It’s not my department anymore,” Jennings said. “I just wait for the phone call now. I do see two people missing. They are probably in a holding pattern pending.”
