According to ESPN.com, the Yankees have acquired Nick Swisher from the Chicago White Sox. In return the Yankees will send Jeff Marquez to the Chicago White Sox. Swisher is versatile, he can play all three outfield positions and first base. He adds some personality and life to this very business like, dare I say stuffy team. Swisher had his best seasons in 2006 and 2007 while in Oakland. If I had to guess the Yankees picked him up to play first base and will now back out of the Teixeira sweepstakes. It is unknown if there are other pieces to this trade.
