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.

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: Brantley ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should be a daily consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

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.
