NICK SWISHER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Indians' Francona tells Swisher opening day unlikely

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Terry Francona acknowledged it was unlikely that Nick Swisher would be ready for opening day. And the Cleveland Indians' manager thinks that's just fine.

Swisher Eyes Opening Day Return

The 34-year-old is coming off a season that was statically the worst of his career. In 97 games, Swish hit .208 with eight homers and 42 RBI after hitting 20+ homers and 63...

Nick Swisher On The Mend!

Who Needs to Rebound? Naming a player as a rebound player needs to be defined. First, it’s not necessarily the most improved player, which is typically an unproven player who has a break out season. Second, it’s not a player getting only marginally better. Instead, it is a player who had a bad year, requiring significant improvement to return to form the following year. This...

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. Since inking his four-year, $56 million deal that includes an option for 2017, Swisher has hit just .231 as an Indian, with nearly 25% of his...
