There’s no flash when it comes to Nick Swisher‘s numbers; he’s a 25-homer, 90-RBI guy who will contribute a ton in OBP leagues (career 13.3 BB%). If you’re looking to maximize Swisher’s skills then look no further than his L/R splits.
Against right-handed pitching Swisher has a career 0.48 BB:K rate while it’s a nice 1.08 rate against lefties. However, where his plate discipline suffers his power gains as he has a career .228 ISO against righties and .171 against lefties. These types of splits can be useful especially in head-to-head leagues where you need a boost in a certain area at the end of the week.
