Outlook: Nick Swisher
by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

2014 summary: Nick Swisher was never really able to get going in his second season with the Indians, and knee injuries played a key role in a disappointing year. He served two stints on the disabled list and played in a total of 97 games, marking the first time since Swisher achieved rookie status in 2005 that he played in fewer than 130 games. His season was effectively ended in August when he underwent knee surgery. Swisher batted .208 with eight home runs and 42 RBI on the year.

Playing time status: Swisher is expected to be ready for spring training and set to serve as the Indians' regular designated hitter. His ability to fill in at first base and in the outfield should mean a return to steady at-bats.

2015 outlook: Owners can reasonably expect Swisher to rebound with better health, but expectations should be tempered. His decline was already under way before last season, and even with a full season's worth of games, Swisher could struggle to reach 20 home runs or a .350 on-base percentage. Look to target him in the later rounds of standard mixed league drafts.
