Indians Rumors: Nick Swisher Seriously Considering Cleveland’s Offer

Free agent outfielder Nick Swisher is “giving serious consideration” to the four-year, $52 million offer the Cleveland Indians have extended him, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN.

Bowden adds that while Swisher would prefer to sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels or New York Yankees, there isn’t a comparable offer from those clubs. The free agent wishes to wind up in Los Angeles or New York for the sake of his wife’s acting career, according to Bowden.

Last season for the Yankees Swisher hit .272/.364/.473 with 36 doubles and 24 home runs. The 32-year-old has hit .268/.367/.483 over his past four seasons in New York and owns a career line of .256/.361/.467 in nine years at the major league level.

Beyond Swisher, the Indians have targeted other outfielders this offseason, including Shane Victorino before he signed with the Boston Red Sox.
