Update: Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the Indians have signed Nick Swisher to a four-year, $56 million contract.The deal also includes a $14 million option for 2017 that will vest based on his number of plate appearances in 2016. The hot stove is burning in Los Angeles as as the rumor storm continues to brew in Dodgertown. We already heard today that Joel Hanrahan will be dealt to the Boston Red Sox and former Dodger Jerry Sands is indeed part of the return package. Well, at least he will get some playing time in Pittsburgh, and former Dodgers tend to thrive in Pittsburgh, so best wishes to you Jerry. Before Hanrahan was dealt we heard that the Pirates were wanting Dee Gordon in any deal for Hanrahan. The Mariners recently spoke with the Dodgers about Chris Capuano, Jon Paul Morosi reports. However, it doesn’t appear that discussion went very far. We heard earlier today that the Mets were also in hot pursuit of Capuano and Aaron Harang. The Red Sox asked the Dodgers about Andre Ethier at the start of the winter and heard he was “not available,” according to a recent tweet by Jon Heyman. For the millionth time there is zero chance Ethier is traded this winter, unless the Dodgers can pry the disgruntled Giancarlo Stanton away from the Miami Marlins. Apparently the Mariners also asked about Ethier, unsurprisingly talks didn’t get far. Then there is Nick Swisher, who apparently has the Dodgers and Angels high on his wishlist. Jim Bowden is tweeting that Nick Swisher is giving “serious consideration” to the four-year, $52MM offer from the Indians. In some not rumor related Dodgers info, the Dodgers signed 32-year-old journeyman third baseman Dallas McPherson. He will serve as organizational depth as a member of the Albuquerque Isotopes.
