Indians outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher went deep on Wednesday during a 10-4 win over Cole Hamels and the Phillies.
Swisher took Hamels deep for a two-run blast, his sixth of the year, in the fifth inning. He finished 1 for 5 with two RBI and is batting .273.
The 32-year-old Swisher has recorded at least one base hit in nine of his last 10 games and has three homers and six RBI...
“Swish is going to miss playing in Yankee stadium more than most. He goes to Cleveland where the RBI opportunities will not be the same, and lefties do not have the Jet Stream like he once had in NY. Still a 20/85 season is possible, but do not draft him with his expectations besides getting a good role player.”
