Nick Swisher: Announces retirement Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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."

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: Takes paternity leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees' Nick Swisher: Promotion from Triple-A possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Nick Swisher: Released by Braves on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swisher was released by the Braves on Monday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Swisher put together a decent spring training, but there simply wasn't room for him on Atlanta's rebuilding roster, especially given his $15 million salary. He could prove to be a decent power bat off the bench for another team, although he'll have to prove that his health isn't a concern in order to garner much attention on the free agent market.

Braves' Nick Swisher: Unlikely to make final roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swisher is hitting .286 (8-for-28) this spring, but is likely to be traded or released, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Braves have no room for Swisher on a rebuilding team and will try to find any takers for a portion of his $15 million salary. Swisher is showing enough in spring training that another team make take a chance at adding him as a reserve outfielder.

Braves' Nick Swisher: Enters spring healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swisher has reported to spring training eager to prove that he's healthy after struggling with his surgically-repaired knees over the past two seasons, according to MLB.com.

Swisher will shed the knee braces he wore last season, after spending the offseason strengthening his legs. The Braves may opt to eat the remaining $15 million on Swisher's contract if they don't believe he can offer their rebuilding roster value in the first half of 2016. If nothing else, spring training may be an audition for Swisher to earn a role outside of Atlanta, but the Braves may see a short-term opportunity for him at first base if Freddie Freeman's right wrist ailment persists. If he's healthy, Swisher could provide a cheap source of pop in deeper formats, but that's far from guaranteed to be the case for the duration of a 162-game season at age-35. With Nick Markakis and Hector Olivera expected to man the team's corner-outfield spots, playing time could be very difficult for him to come by.

Braves first baseman Nick Swisher is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braves first baseman Nick Swisher (forearm) is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Swisher was a late scratch Saturday with a forearm strain and he'll miss the first game of Atlanta's final day of the regular season. With him under contract for 2016, there's little reason to expect him to start in Game 2.

Freeman (wrist) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Nationals.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A nagging wrist issue has Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman sidelined Thursday against visiting Washington.

Considering Freeman is dealing with a small bone spur in his wrist, this isn't a surprising development. With the Braves well out of the playoff contention, it's fair to question if Freeman will return to the starting lineup this season. Nick Swisher will get the start at first base once again and hit third in the batting order.

Braves' Nick Swisher blasts two home runs in loss on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Nick Swisher had his finest performance as a member of the Braves on Saturday. Swisher, who was acquired by the Braves earlier this month, hit a pair of two-run home runs, but it wouldn't be enough, as the Braves fell to the Cubs 9-7.

Swisher now has three home runs in 11 games with the Braves--he had two in 30 games with the Indians prior to the trade.

The switch-hitting Swisher homered from both sides of the plate on Saturday, the 14th time in his career he has accomplished that feat.

Bourn has been hot since the All-Star break, but Swisher is returning after a long disabled list stint and another disappointing season with the Indians.
