He's reportedly going to the Yankees for minor leaguer Jeff Marquez.
More players could be involved.

Yankees acquire Nick Swisher

Interesting trade....from ESPN.com

The New York Yankees have acquired center fielder-first baseman Nick Swisher in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, baseball sources tell ESPN.com.
Minor league pitcher Jeff Marquez is headed to Chicago in the deal, the source said. It's uncertain if any other players are involved.

Swisher, 27, hit .219 with 24 home runs in 153 games with Chicago this season.

If Marquez is the best player going to Chicago, then I say it's a steal for the Yanks.
