MLB Rumors: More New York Yankees

Buster Olney reports the New York Yankees will trade either OF/1B Nick Swisher or OF Xavier Nady.  Dealing one of them will have positive effects on the playing time of the outfielders left behind, and on the one dealt.

Without Swisher or Nady, the playing time of Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner increase assuming catcher Jorge Posada remains an effective backstop.  Otherwise, Hideki Matsui will be sent to the field with Jorge filling the DH slot.

Whoever is dealt will see his ABs go north of 500.  This is a win-win situation for the players - both major league and fantasy.
