Olney said that the Yankees have denied the claim, but that they are willing to listen to offers for anyone. He added that the Yankees have been getting calls about Nick Swisher, something Brian Cashman himself confirmed the other day.
With a few outfielders available on the free agent market, it would make sense for the Yankees to deal Swisher if they were able to upgrade their pitching staff while doing so. Grady Sizemore is apparently close to re-signing with the Indians, but there is still Cuban phenom Yoenis Cespedes and former Met Carlos Beltran available among other outfielders.
I compiled a list of the best 11 starting pitchers that could be traded this offseason earlier this week.
