According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Cleveland Indians are exploring a possible trade that would involve RF/1B Nick Swisher.

Why a Nick Swisher trade will not actually benefit Cleveland

But while many seem ready to move on from Swisher, such a trade may be premature. There is no denying the 2014 version of Swisher was one of the worst regular players in baseball.

Shutting Down Swisher May Be Best for Everyone

There have been letdowns and disappointing seasons on the Cleveland Indians this year, and then there has been Nick Swisher. Signed in December 2012 to become the new face of the franchise, things have not gone exactly as planned for Swisher.
