Yankees Still Fielding Calls on Swisher, Nady

According to Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, Brian Cashman's spending lots of time talking with other clubs about Nick Swisher and Xavier Nady. Cashman's open to moving either player, but he says he won't make a deal for the sake of making one: "we're not going to do anything unless there's a reason to do it."

Cashman also said most reports about trade discussions have been accurate. The Braves, Nationals and Reds are among the teams who have reportedly had interest in Swisher and Nady.

The Yankees like Johnny Damon's production and they're not shopping him or Hideki Matsui.

Kepner suggests the Yankees should "hold on to Swisher and dangle Nady" for a number of reasons. Swisher's two years younger and he's under contract for $21MM over the next three years. Nady, a Scott Boras client, will be a free agent after the 2009 season.
