Red Sox Target Nick Swisher

Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On November 21, 2012 @ 9:34 AM In MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments

[1]If Nick Swisher thought Yankee Stadium fans treated him harshly in October, what can he expect if he returns to The Bronx wearing “BOSTON’’ across his chest on Opening Day next April?

According to a person with knowledge of the situation the Red Sox have an interest in the switch-hitting right fielder who can also handle first base.

“He is on their radar,’’ the person said of the Yankees’ blood rivals who need a right fielder and first baseman and have vowed to spend money this offseason.

Of course, there is a wide gulf between being on a team’s radar and actually joining that club. A 32-year old (his birthday is Sunday) switch-hitter who can play a corner spot in the outfield and infield and has value, Swisher batted .272 with 24 homers and 93 RBIs (his most in his four seasons as a Yankee) last season.
