While he isn't going to be able to duplicate Jayson Werth’s $126 million contract, Nick Swisher is drawing interest from several teams interested in offense.

Entering the offseason it was reported that Swisher was seeking a deal over $100 million in total value this winter. While Heyman doesn’t expect him to reach this point, he does believe the outfielder could receive a four-year offer given his amount of early interest. He adds that several teams have shown interest in a three-year contract with a speculated average annual salary of $11 to $13 million.

The New York Yankees are one team that doesn’t have interest in Swisher, but they will collect a draft pick when he signs elsewhere. Swisher declined the Yankees’ qualifying offer of one-year, $13.3 million.
