Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has homered in two straight games.
Insight: He has gone 4-for-9 with six RBI after going 8-for-44 (.182) with zero longballs in his previous 12 games. Swisher has 17 homers this season but is hitting just .241 with 52 RBI and a .744 OPS.
 
9/1/2013 9:02:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher has hit .194 with 22 K in 62 at-bats against Justin Verlander, though eight of his 12 hits went for extra bases.
Insight: Swisher has seen a massive drop in production from what he averaged with New York. In 119 games, he's hitting .242 with 15 home runs, 46 RBI and a .740 OPS. With Verlander on the mound Sunday, Swisher shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups.
 
8/8/2013 10:54:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher had a good game Wednesday (3-for-4, 2 RBI) and he might have an even better one Thursday versus Max Scherzer.
Insight: Swisher carries a .462 lifetime average against Scherzer with a homer and three RBI. Overall, Swisher (.245, 11 HR, 35 RBI) is hitting .271 in 48 at bats against the Tigers this season.
 
7/30/2013 10:26:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has gone just 1-for-12 (.083) with eight strikeouts against Chicago starter Jake Peavy.
Insight: Swisher owners have seen a significant drop off from last season's production level. He's batting .244 with 11 HR and 33 RBI after batting .272 with 24 HR and 93 RBI last season. This matchup isn't going to help those mediocre totals.
 
7/14/2013 10:29:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has gone just 8-for-45 (.178) with 15 strikeouts against Kansas City starter James Shields.
Insight: Swisher has experienced a dropoff in HR/FB from 15.4 percent to 11.5 percent since last season, but with a 27 percent line-drive rate and a 5.1 percent infield popup rate, both career bests, Swisher should have a much higher BABIP than .296. His luck should turn around in the second half, but not Sunday against Shields.
 
7/13/2013 10:04:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher is a career .382 hitter with eight extra-base hits and a 1.215 OPS in 34 at-bats against Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.
Insight: Swisher has a modest four-game hit streak heading into this favorable matchup and could be worth a flier.
 
7/11/2013 11:24:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher has been terrible against Blue Jays righthander R.A. Dickey in 15 previous at bats (just two hits).
Insight: That's probably why he's not in the lineup on Thursday. Instead, power-hitting Mark Reynolds will get the start at first base.
 
7/8/2013 9:48:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is 5-for-10 with a couple of extra base hits and a 1.415 OPS versus Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: Scherzer is having a special season in 2013, so it's possible that this favorable matchup could be negated by a "career year." Swisher is 3-for-8 with a home run over the first three games of the series.
 
Hot7/4/2013 10:41:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has gone just 8-for-45 with 15 strikeouts against Kansas City starter James Shields.
Insight: Swisher is 7-for-19 with five walks over his last five games and he does have three homers and 10 RBI against Shields, but he his extended sample size against the right-hander suggests he won't do much Thursday.
 
Hot7/3/2013 10:05:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is 13-for-31 (.419) with a pair of home runs and a 1.325 OPS in his matchups against Jeremy Guthrie.
Insight: Swisher has seven hits in his last 15 at-bats to raise his average to .243. He's hit eight home runs, but fantasy owners are expecting more than that after averaging 25.8 HR per season over the past eight years. This matchup should continue his hot streak.
 
6/23/2013 11:14:00 AM
Description: After missing the past six games with a sore shoulder, Indians first baseman Nick Swisher will return to the starting lineup Sunday against Minnesota.
Insight: Swisher hasn't exactly been tearing the cover off the ball this season (.237, 7 HR, 24 RBI in 61 games) but he's still somebody for fantasy owners to keep an eye on.
 
6/19/2013 4:55:00 PM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher will take batting practice Friday and return to the lineup Saturday versus the Twins, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

6/17/2013 7:07:00 PM
Description: Cleveland first baseman/right fielder Nick Swisher was recently given a cortisone shot in his left shoulder.
Insight: According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the earliest Swisher would be able to return to the lineup is Friday against the Twins. This injury could land Swisher (.237, 7 HR, 24 RBI) on the DL.
 
Cold6/16/2013 2:19:00 PM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher sat out Sunday's game due to a nagging left shoulder injury and could land on the DL, according to Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com (Cleveland Plain Dealer).
Insight: Swisher is ice cold right now, having gone 6-for-55 (.109) with 18 strikeouts and zero extra-base hits in his last 15 games. He aggravated his shoulder injury in the fifth inning Saturday night.
 
Cold6/16/2013 11:30:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher will rest Sunday against the Nationals.
Insight: Swisher is ice cold right now, having gone 6-for-55 (.109) with 18 strikeouts and zero extra-base hits in his last 15 games. Fantasy owners won't mind him getting Sunday off.
 
6/5/2013 9:45:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is 8-for-23 (.348) in his matchups with Yankees left-hander C.C. Sabathia.
Insight: After a strong start, Swisher has fallen back and has just seven hits in his last 30 at-bats and an ugly .650 OPS since returning from paternity leave. Those late-night feedings could be effecting his swing.
 
5/31/2013 10:06:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is just 1-for-10 in his matchups with Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore.
Insight: Swisher is hitting .278 with seven homers and 20 RBI, but was just 4-for-16 in the four-game set with Cincinnati. Avoid this matchup.
 
5/24/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is scheduled to return from paternity leave on Friday, but that doesn't mean you should install him in your lineup as he's a career .164 hitter versus Boston starter John Lackey with 23 strikeouts in 61 at-bats.
Insight: Swisher is hitting .286 with four homers and a .978 OPS in May, but this is an unfavorable matchup.

Insight: Swisher is hitting .286 with four homers and a .978 OPS in May. He'll end up missing three games.
 
Hot5/21/2013 4:18:00 PM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher, who has a good history against Detroit right-hander Max Scherzer will not get a chance to hit against him. He's out of the lineup due to family reasons
Insight: Swisher's .875 OPS is the highest of his career. He's helped lead the resurgent Cleveland offense, now ranked No. 2 in all of baseball at 5.07 runs-per-game, batting .313 over the past 13 games. They face the highest scoring team, Detroit, in a huge AL Central division series beginning on Tuesday, but without Swisher.
