Nick Swisher drives in three in late rally


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians outfielder Nick Swisher put together a big performance in the first game after the All-Star break, in a 9-3 win over the Tigers.

Swisher went 2 for 5 in the game, and he got the scoring started for the Indians with a two-run single in the seventh inning. He added an RBI double in the ninth as well, as he drove in three runs and scored 1 in the win.

This has been a season to forget for Swisher, who is hitting just .211/.290/.352 overall, but he is finding his swing recently. In the month of July, Swisher has three home runs and 14 RBI, while hitting .300/.327/.520 in 50 at-bats. 


Nick Swisher goes deep in victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Indians outfielder Nick Swisher extended his modest hitting streak to seven games Friday, in a 7-4 win over the White Sox.

Swisher hit his third home run in five games as well Friday, as clubbed a two-run home run in the fifth inning to win the game. He finished the game 2 for 4 with two runs scored and two drive in during the win.

Swisher is hitting .310 with three home runs and seven RBI during his seven-game hitting streak, raising his average to .207.  


Nick Swisher knocks two-run home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Indians first baseman Nick Swisher went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 5-3 win over the Yankees Tuesday.

Swisher has smacked home runs in back-to-back games, and he's managed to pick up a hit in four straight games despite continuing to have issues with making contact (two strikeouts Tuesday). Swisher owns a .198/.286/.339 line with seven home runs and 32 RBI in 257 at-bats.


Nick Swisher slugs sixth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Indians designated hitter Nick Swisher went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-3 loss to the Yankees Monday.

Swisher gave his team its first run of the game in the fifth inning, but the Indians were still down 5-1 after the home run and couldn't put together a rally. It was Swisher's first home run since June 19 and his sixth of the season. He has hit .198/.286/.328 with 30 RBI in 253 at-bats.


Nick Swisher doubles, singles to emerge from slump


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Indians embattled first baseman Nick Swisher dropped another easy throw for his eighth error of the season Tuesday night, but he did break from a horrific slump with a two-run double and single in a lopsided defeat of the Dodgers.

Most encouraging is that Swisher slammed the double to the opposite field and the single up the middle. He had been pull-happy all season, a malady that has placed his batting average under the Mendoza Line.


Nick Swisher seeking to stop struggles in Seattle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) The return of the Indians to an American League park Friday will result in designated hitter Nick Swisher rejoining to the lineup. The team is set to play Seattle in a three-game series.

That's bad news is Swisher can't shake a slump that has plagued him all season and has been particularly nasty since he returned from the disabled list on June 12. He is 5 for 39 with 19 strikeouts during that stretch despite two game-winning homers.

Swisher, who is in the second year of a four-year contract that will pay him $56 million, owns a disturbing stat line of .196/.284/.326 on the season. His strikeout pace is far beyond anything he has previously experienced. Swisher has fanned 68 times in 224 at-bats.


Nick Swisher goes from goat to hero against Angels


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Indians designated hitter Nick Swisher had done nothing right Thursday against the Angels until he took a mighty swing with the bases loaded in the tenth inning.

The result was a game-winning grand slam against Ernesto Frieri that erased memories of his three strikeouts. Swisher has just two hits in his last 17 at-bats, but both were game-winning home runs. The one Thursday inched his batting average back to .200.


Nick Swisher seeking productive swing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Embattled Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is trying to find the productive swing that has been missing most of the season - or at least the one that earned him seven hits in 18 at-bats before his trip to the disabled list.

"I just want to pick up where I left off," he told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "My swing feels good. The first night [of his rehab assignment] in Akron, I swear that pitcher was standing 500 feet away from me. Wednesday was great. I kind of felt that I was back in the rhythm of the game a little bit and hitting some balls on the button."

Swisher indeed had three hits for the Rubber Ducks that night, but proceeded to go 0 for 4 in his return to the Indians on Thursday in Boston.

Nick Swisher receives injections, not worried about knees


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) The knee injuries that landed Indians outfielder Nick Swisher on the disabled list appear to be more the result of wear and tear than anything structural, according to MLB.com.

"There's some arthritic changes, which I think we knew," Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday. "I mean, he can't play this long, so he got both knees injected and that puts him down, I think, three to five days, let that thing calm down. And then, I think, the initial view is that it won't be an extended DL. Hopefully, when this two weeks is up, he might be raring to go."

Swisher was evaluated by team doctors Wednesday, and also received injections in both knees, according to The Plain Dealer.

Nick Swisher: 'If I have to hit ninth, I'll hit ninth'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona finally moved slumping first baseman Nick Swisher out of the second spot in the batting order over the weekend, dropping him to sixth Sunday against the A's. Swisher hit seventh Monday, but the veteran slugger has no plans to complain about where he bats in the lineup.

"If I have to hit ninth, I'll hit ninth," Swisher said, per The Plain Dealer. "I want to be out there. I want to be playing. It hasn't been the start that I wanted it to [be], but we have 75 percent of the season left, so for me, it's not really a spot that I've really been in before, so I'm going to have to fight and scrap and battle myself out."

Swisher's struggles aren't just at the plate. He's committed six errors in 41 games at first base.

"I've been putting in a lot of work," Swisher said. "For me, when I get into these slides, I have to hit myself out of them. Maybe Tito dropping me in the lineup, taking a little pressure off, just relaxing a little more, getting to be able to watch the first couple innings and seeing what pitchers are doing -- I back him 100 percent. He knows what he's doing. There's a reason why he's the manager here and there's a reason why we all respect the hell out of him."
