Latest Update Indians are exploring a wide range of options, including a trade of Nick Swisher Tue Nov, 18, 02:15 PM
A switch-hitter with surprising power from both sides, he is supremely patient at the dish. A clutch hitter and a team leader who hustles all the time, he's also versatile with the glove.
Flaws: : Though a patient hitter, he doesn't make great contact--leading to too many strikeouts. Can seem a little reckless at times, both in the field and on the bases. Appears to be in decline.
It was a nightmarish, injury-filled season for Swisher who failed to hit 20 home runs in a year for the first time in his 10-year professional career. Tribe fans were rough on him and it looks as if the team is listening to the masses. Expect to see Swisher end up somewhere other than Cleveland this year.Analyst: Howard Bender
And that's a wrap on Swisher's 2014 season, folks. All done. Both knees getting scoped now puts him on the shelf for good and we'll wait to see how he looks coming back next spring. If you haven't dropped him from your roster by now, you should. He's done like dinner.Analyst: Howard Bender
Swisher wanted a second opinion after seeing Dr. Rick Parker on Monday, but there is no word from the Indians on the results of that visit. The veteran outfielder has played through knee pain all season and the club is now trying to figure out what would be the best course of action but won't know more until Tuesday. Analyst: Drew Phelps
Swisher left Saturday's game because of soreness in his knee and the team evaluated him again Sunday morning. obviously they didn't like what they saw and he is now scheduled for an MRI this week. We'll update you again as soon as the results are in.Analyst: Howard Bender
