Yankees' Nick Swisher: Opts out of deal with Yankees, will sit out remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Promotion from Triple-A possible
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Swisher could get promoted if Dustin Ackley's shoulder 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 who is hitting better in Triple-A.

Yankees' Nick Swisher: Signs minor-league deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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, but time has not been kind to the former All-Star over the past two years, 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 could be back in a comfortable situation.

Nick Swisher: Expected to ink minors deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Swisher is expected to agree to terms with the Yankees on a minor league deal, Chad Jennings of Lohud reports.

According to Jennings, Swisher is working out at the Yankees' minor league facility Saturday and should sign in the near future. Swisher, who spent last season with the Indians and Braves, was released by the Braves during spring training. He slashed .196/.312/.320 last season, but he could get back on track by rejoining a Yankees team that he was a part of from 2009-2012. Still, he'd be on a minor league deal to start with, so it's unlikely that he'd be in a Yankees uniform anytime soon.
