    • Nick Swisher: Announces retirement Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Swisher officially announced his retirement via the Players' Tribune on Friday. The 36-year-old Swisher officially called it a career Friday after 11 seasons in the majors. He last played at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the Yankees' organization last season, but ultimately opted out of his deal shortly before the All-Star break. Swisher played with six different major league clubs during his career and made the All-Star team in 2010 as a member of the Yankees when he slashed .288/.359/.511 with 29 home runs and 89 RBI. He ended his retirement statement by saying, in classic Swisher fashion, "This dream is over, y'all. But another one is about to begin. The roller coaster is not stopping, it's just switching tracks."

    • Swisher (paternity) opted out of his minor league deal with the Yankees on Saturday and plans to sit out for the remainder of the season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. "After the birth of my second child, I've decided to take a step back and spend the rest of this season full time with my wife and two daughters. Make no mistake, I am not hanging it up," said Swisher on Saturday. The veteran Swisher agreed to a minor league contract with the Yankees to add organizational depth at first base in light of Greg Bird's season-ending shoulder injury. Despite injuries to both Mark Teixeira and Dustin Ackley, Swisher was never called back up to the Yankees, likely due in part to his pedestrian production at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (.255/.297/.377, 54 K's in 220 AB). He'll shut it down for the rest of the season, but he could latch on with a team looking to add a veteran utility player next spring.

    • Yankees' Nick Swisher: Takes paternity leave
      By RotoWire Staff

      Swisher will be placed on paternity leave for three days as his wife prepares to give birth. Swisher is batting .247 over 54 games with Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre as he searches for another shot in the majors.

    • Swisher could get promoted if Dustin Ackley's injury necessitates a DL move. The Yankees would rather not play Mark Teixeira at first base as he continues to recover from a neck injury, but their options on the major league roster are pretty slim. Swisher isn't hitting very well at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, with a .244/.263/.366 line in 131 at-bats. Chris Parmelee is another alternative, and is hitting better in Triple-A.

    • Swisher officially signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees on Wednesday and will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in time for Thursday's game, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Swisher was a fan-favorite in the Bronx and while over the past two years, time has not been kind to the former All-Star as he's hit just .204 over that span. However, this move is fairly low-risk for both sides as if he struggles, he'll stay in Triple-A and if he can find his swing, he'll be back in a comfortable situation.
