Swisher being bumped up to sixth is obviously the biggest change to the Yankees lineup, but the  most important change could be production from Mark Teixeira who is 0-for-16 this season.

Teixeira also started his career 0-for-16 before finally doubling off Mark Mulder.

“It’s always turned around,” he said. “It’s always turned around really, really well.”

Here’s Teixeira’s session with the media last night.
