The Cleveland Indians are not happy with Nick Swisher’s performance at first base. The Indians’ brass are considering moving him back to the outfield.
From Paul Hoynes on Cleveland.com
“Just to rewind a little bit . . .the plan coming into this season was for Nick to play a lot of first base. So he prepared in the offseason and spring training to do that and not play a lot outfield.
“Going into next year the plan could be different. Giving him that head’s up and allowing him the offseason to go out and prepare to be an outfielder, come into camp, get the reps in the outfield that will prepare him better for the season.”
Swisher did play some games in the outfield this season including the last two games. He hasn’t played regularly in the outfield since 2012.
