UPDATE: Nothing imminent between Diamondbacks and Wagner Mateo

Apr 13, 2010, 9:17 PM EST

UPDATE: Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic writes that there has been “very little recent dialogue” between the Diamondbacks and Mateo, concluding that there are “no indications” that a signing is imminent.

8:36 PM: According to Melissa Segura of SI.com, the Diamondbacks will sign 17-year-old Dominican outfielder Wagner Mateo by the end of the month.

We haven’t heard much about Mateo lately. Of course, the Cardinals inked him to a historic $3.1 million signing bonus last July, however the agreement was voided after concerns were raised about the vision in his right eye during a physical.

The Athletics held a try-out for Mateo last month, while the Giants were rumored to be close to a deal with him last fall.
