Unfortunately it doesn't involve the Jays, the White Sox have traded Nick Swisher to the Yankees for Wilson Betemit and minor league pitchers Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez. An interesting trade for the Yankees, Swisher can play any of the outfield spots or first base.

Swisher did not have a good season last year, hitting just .219 with 24 homers but he does have talent and I think he'll be a good pickup for the Yankees. Betemit is a utility infielder and I can't see him having a bigger role with the Sox. But getting a couple of pitching prospects is a good thing.
