Indians Rumors: Cleveland Targeting Swisher, Youkilis

The Cleveland Indians continue to target free agent outfielder Nick Swisher, who’s market could be shifting, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN, and corner infielder Kevin Youkilis, reports Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Indians are hoping to sign Swisher to a four-year deal in the range of $50 million. However, Bowden notes that the market for the free agent outfield has shifted, and the veteran slugger is now seeking something closer to $60 million over four years.

Meanwhile, the Indians are waiting to hear from Youkilis regarding the two-year offer they’ve extended him. While Cleveland is one of the teams that has reportedly made Youkilis a two-year contract offer, Pluto notes that it could have a total value of a “little higher” than $18 million.
