Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has homered in two straight games and he has two homers in 11 career at-bats against Brandon McCarthy.
Insight: McCarthy will make his Yankees debut Wednesday after coming over from the Diamondbacks in a trade over the weekend. Swisher is still hitting just .198 this season, but he could be a decent option Wednesday.

Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is a career .314 hitter (11-for-35) with a 1.013 OPS versus Angeles left-hander C.J. Wilson.
Insight: Swisher is struggling to keep his batting average above the Mendoza Line after going 2-for-20 since returning from the disabled list. It's probably best to avoid him even in this favorable matchup.
 
6/15/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher launched his fourth home run of the season Sunday against Boston.
Insight: His solo shot down the right field line gave Cleveland a 3-2 lead in the 11th inning. Swisher was hitless in his other four at bats. Swisher may be a household name but his fantasy contributions haven't been up to snuff this season (.207 AVG in 52 games).
 
6/14/2014 11:31:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher should not be started on Saturday.
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.

Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher is expected to return Thursday against Boston. He's been rehabbing a hyperextended knee. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: He's ready to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron. The 33-year-old hasn't been of much use to fantasy owners, providing just three homers and 11 RBI in 49 games this season. Swisher's .211 average is a career-worst.

Insight: Swisher is eligible to return from the disabled list on June 11. Up until Monday, the entirety of his rehab work had been done in the pool. Swisher is hitting just .211 with three home runs and a .631 OPS this season and shouldn't be owned in most fantasy leagues.

Description: Nick Swisher has been placed on the disabled list due to a sore left knee suffered in Monday night's game.
Insight: Swisher has also struggled with a sore right knee. With just three homers in 185 at bats, Swisher hasn't had a particularly large impact on the fantasy realm this season.

Insight: With just three homers in 180 at bats, Swisher hasn't had a particularly large impact on the fantasy realm this season. There's still time for him to turn things around but we're not holding our breath.
 
5/24/2014 11:39:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher is not in Saturday's starting lineup due to a sore right knee.
Insight: Swisher (.211, 3 HR, 18 RBI) has always been a low average, but high home run total guy, but this year he's not hitting enough long balls.
 
5/14/2014 11:34:00 AM
Description: Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher is 2-for-15 lifetime against Toronto starter Dustin McGowan.
Insight: Swisher (.204, 2 HR, 15 RBI) has been a bust this season and Wednesday night's matchup won't help. He shouldn't be owned in any fantasy leagues.

Insight: Swisher is "up" to .181 after going 3-for-11 over the past three games. We've come to expect a low average with Swisher's power, but not this low. Swisher has hit at least 21 homers in nine consecutive seasons.
 
Cold4/20/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has gone 4-for-27 (.148) with eight Ks against Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow.
Insight: Swisher is hitting .174 with 18 strikeouts in 69 at-bats this season and facing Morrow Sunday won't help matters.
