Indians Rumors: Cleveland Aggressively Pursuing Nick Swisher

The Cleveland Indians are “continuing aggressive pursuit” of free agent outfielder Nick Swisher, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN. Beyond the Indians, the Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles are all interested in Swisher, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.

Bowden notes that Swisher would represent a replacement for recently traded right fielder Shin-Soo Choo for the Indians. Cleveland dealt Choo and Jason Donald in the recent three-team trade with the Cincinnati Reds and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Considering the level of interest Swisher is receiving, it would make sense that he signs for something close to his reported target of five or six years at $60 million-plus.

Last season for the New York Yankees Swisher hit .272/.364/.473 with 36 doubles and 24 home runs.
