Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:08:44 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher (knee) will continue his minor-league rehab assignment during the big club's six-game road trip. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher is too brittle to rely upon in FantasyScore these days. If and when he does return, if he can play at least five games in a row without any setbacks, then you can trust him again.

Indians | Nick Swisher to DH in rehab assignment

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 08:46:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher will serve as the designated hitter in his first rehab game Monday, July 20. Swisher will have three at-bats and play the outfield Tuesday, and the final number of rehab games will be determined from there.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will have to rebuild his fantasy value from the ground up, and he's not worth stashing in any league format.

Indians | Nick Swisher nearing rehab assignment

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 15:35:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher (knee) will work out and take batting practice with the Class A Lake County Captains over the weekend, according to manager Terry Francona. He added that a rehab assignment for next week is possible.

Fantasy Tip: If this was the Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) of old -- the one that mashed more than 20 home runs in nine consecutive seasons from 2005-2013 -- then this would be a noteworthy fantasy item, but considering the 34-year-old is a shell of his former self, there really isnít much to digest here. Swisher is barely hanging on at this stage in his career, slashing an abysmal .198/.261/.297 in 30 games with just two home runs and eight RBI. Furthermore, when he does return, he'll join a crowded outfield that doesn't really have room for him. You can safely leave him on the waiver wire in shallow mixed leagues.

Indians | Nick Swisher to work out Friday

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 21:11:43 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher (knee) went through a brisk workout in the outfield Wednesday, July 8, running down fly balls and sliding on a few catches. Manager Terry Francona said Swisher is expected to do more Friday, July 10, when the team will have him take breaks to simulate sitting between innings to see how his knee responds.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher had surgery on both knees during the offseason and he has yet to play this season. FantasyScore owners need not bother with him for a while, as he is likely to be limited when he is healthy enough to play.

Indians | Nick Swisher progressing

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 09:30:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher (knee) participated in a light workout on Monday, June 29, after "pretty physical workouts" over the weekend. Swisher is working his way back from a knee injury and has been taking batting practice and running in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is an affordable, low-end option on FantasyScore, but he will have to significantly improve on his 2014 and 2015 numbers to earn full time at-bats in a crowded Indians lineup. He only justifies a roster spot in the deepest of mixed leagues.

Indians | Nick Swisher rehab update

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 19:33:11 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B/OF Nick Swisher (knee) participated in "position specific" speed and agility drills in the outfield Friday, June 26, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Swisher's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) return from the disabled list. He was only batting .198 with two home runs and eight RBIs through 30 games before being sidelined and is not worth stashing in seasonal leagues. However, he could be somewhat useful in FantasyScore if he has a favorable matchup.

Indians | Nick Swisher on the mend

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:53:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher (knee) has resumed baseball activities and could be back in the next couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher has been a shell of himself this season, and he has really been declining since leaving the New York Yankees after the 2012 season. He could be worth playing in certain matchups on FantasyScore, though.
