Nick Swisher released by Braves

Nick Swisher has been released by the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Swisher will, most likely, catch on with another team. Until he can get regular at-bats, he should stay on the waiver wire.

Nick Swisher traded to Braves in three-player deal

DH Nick Swisher and CF Michael Bourn were traded to the Atlanta Braves along with cash for 3B Chris Johnson.

Fantasy Impact

Nick Swisher was never a success in Cleveland and this deal is more about the Indians' dumping (or at least swapping) unfavorable contracts. Swisher is still on the DL and unpopular roster decisions would have to be made when he was ready to return. Nick Swisher has a .198/.261/.297 slash line, having gone 20-for-101 with two home runs. It is difficult to see where he fits in an NL lineup.

Nick Swisher set to start Triple-A rehab on Tuesday

Nick Swisher, on the 15-day DL with knee issues, is rehabbing in Low-A. He is set to move up to Triple-A on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Indians would like to see a healthy Nick Swisher play RF instead of solely DH. Fantasy owners would rather see what Lonnie Chisenhall, Jerry Sands, Ryan Raburn and Tyler Holt can offer. Presumably Holt will be optioned when Swisher returns from the DL. At the moment, only Lonnie Chisenhall is offering any fantasy-relevant form, although Jerry Sands should see playing time over the next few days.

Nick Swisher will need time in minors after ASB

According to Indians' manager Terry Francona, Nick Swisher will need rehab in the minors after the ASB as he recovers from the inflammation in his knee.

Fantasy Impact

Nick Swisher was placed on the DL on June 14. It will be a difficult decision for the Indians to disrupt their current DH platoon. David Murphy and Ryan Raburn are combining for a .357 OBP and .504 SLG. Nick Swisher has a .198/.261/.297 slash line.

Nick Swisher lands on DL with knee inflammation

The Indians placed regular DH Nick Swisher on the DL with left knee inflammation. The move allows Francisco Lindor to be promoted to the big-league club.

Fantasy Impact

Nick Swisher had struggled this season with a disappointing slash line of .198/.261/.297. He has two home runs and eight RBI in 101 at-bats. The Indians will play the match-ups at DH with Ryan Raburn, David Murphy and Mike Aviles all sharing playing time.
