Mon, 25 May 2015 11:59:08 -0700

Indians | Nick Swisher sitting out

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:07:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 22. OF Michael Brantley is serving as the designated hitter against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, and OF David Murphy is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should be a daily consideration for FantasyScore lineups. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a fine value pick against right-handers, as he's hitting .316 (24-for-76) with three home runs and eight RBI against them in 2015. Leake also allows a .786 slugging percentage to lefty sticks this year.

Indians | Nick Swisher shaking off rust?

Sat, 09 May 2015 18:26:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher went 4-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a 7-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins Saturday, May 9, after logging just two hits in his first 15 at-bats of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) raised his average from .133 to .316 with the four-hit effort, and it could be a sign that his timing at the plate is starting to return. Hold off on using Swisher at FantasyScore for now, but he is a name worth filing away.

Indians | Nick Swisher batting sixth

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:15:05 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher is batting sixth as the designated hitter against the Minnesota Twins Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 1-for-11 to start the season after beginning the year on the disabled list due to offseason knee surgeries. Still, FantasyScore players could have a low-priced, high-reward option on their hands in Swisher Friday. Opposing pitcher Mike Pelfrey is due for regression, and Swisher should have a few RBI opportunities.

Indians | Nick Swisher out Thursday

Thu, 07 May 2015 10:06:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher is out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 7. OF David Murphy is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth in the order against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher just returned from the DL this week, so the Tribe is likely to ease him back into regular playing time. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) often starts against righties, but his at-bats may be tough to come by now that Swisher is back. Murphy is a disappointing .240 (12-for-50) against righties this year, and Volquez has been strong in his new digs in KC. Look to avoid Murphy today.

Indians | Nick Swisher making season debut

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:31:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher is starting as the designated hitter and is batting sixth in the order against Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: As the Indians ease Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) back into the everyday lineup, he'll likely stick at DH for at least the short term. Let him get acclimated to major league pitching again for a while before clicking on him at FantasyScore.

Indians | Nick Swisher to return Tuesday

Mon, 04 May 2015 11:35:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher (knee) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, May 5, and OF Tyler Holt will be demoted to the minors to make room on the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is likely to be eased into the lineup initially, so he'll probably be a weak play at FantasyScore in the beginning. His return is likely to take away already limited at-bats from David Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap).

Indians | Nick Swisher continues rehab

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 19:18:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher (knee) continued his minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus Tuesday, April 28. He had a pair of hits and two RBIs as the designated hitter. He might be able to re-join the big club sometime next week.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should wait until Swish is officially activated and able to make it through a full game to prove his health before trusting him again. It's only the minors, but Swisher has been crushing the ball on his rehab stint.

Indians | Nick Swisher to ramp up rehab

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 18:49:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher (knee) worked out at Progressive Field Monday, April 27, and is nearly rehab to make his regular season debut. He went 5-for-9 in a pair of minor-league rehab games with Triple-A Columbus over the weekend. "We spent some time with Nick today. He's made great progress," general manager Chris Antonetti said. Swisher will re-join Columbus Tuesday, April 28, serving as DH, before playing right field Wednesday, April 29, and then resting Thursday, April 30. He'll then play back-to-back games, and he will be re-evaluated by the team.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher might be back in early May, so FantasyScore owners have some time to wait before using him. Initially he could struggle as he knocks off the rust, although he has hit well in the early stages of his rehab stint.

Indians | Nick Swisher timeline update

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:47:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF/1B Nick Swisher (knee) will play with Triple-A Columbus Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25, according to manager Terry Francona. Francona added Swisher will join the team Monday, April 27, to work out and discuss the next steps in his path to rejoining the team.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a lot to overcome before he is anything more than an AL-only option. There isn't a clear path to everyday at-bats, and he is returning from two knee surgeries at 34. Plus, he posted career-low numbers in 2014. At this point, it is advised to take a wait-and-see approach with 'Swish' in all formats.
