Insight: Swisher is just 1-for-15 over the past four games so may not be ready to take advantage of this favorable matchup. We're wishing for the days when he would bang out 20-30 HR like clockwork. He's got just eight through 96 games.

Insight: Swisher (.206, 3 HR, 19 RBI) went 0-for-4 Thursday in his return from a knee injury, but he's 1-for-12 with eight strikeouts against Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy. Avoid.
