Saturday December 8th, 2012

It looks like the Indians might be able to nab Nick Swisher. Buster Olney of ESPN reports that Indians have the upper hand in signing the right fielder.


Jim Bowden of ESPN reports that the Indians are looking to offer Swisher a four-year deal worth $48-50 million, but the market has him looking a little higher.
