Reports: Nick Swisher has standing offer from Indians after meeting with team

The Cleveland Indians are making a push to sign free agent outfielder Nick Swisher, according to multiple reports. Swisher, a Columbus, Ohio native and Ohio State product, visited Cleveland this week to meet with the Indians' front office and has a standing offer from the Indians.

The team has a hole to fill in its outfield after trading Shin-Soo Choo to the Cincinnati Reds in a three-team deal last week. Swisher could fit the bill as a veteran right fielder, alongside young players Michael Brantley and newly acquired center fielder Drew Stubbs.

WTAM's Nick Camino reported that Swisher had dinner with Indians president Mark Shapiro on Monday.

Swisher posted an .837 OPS, 24 home runs and 93 RBI for the Yankees last season and owns an .828 career OPS. He played four seasons in New York after spending one year with the White Sox and four with the Athletics, who drafted him in the first round in 2002.

He is believed to be seeking a four- or five-year deal and has also been linked to the Mariners, Orioles, Phillies, Rangers and Red Sox.
