“Swisher most likely landing spots are now Phiilies [sic], Mariners and Indians.”
Swisher, 32, hit .272 with 24 homeruns and 93 RBI last year for the Yankees while holding down right field. Swisher is a switch hitter that has hit 21 or more homeruns in each season since 2005.
From the “out of the blue” category, Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Phillies have showed interest in former Phillie Raul Ibanez.
“Could #Yankees lose on Ibanez too? Source says #Mariners, #Rangers, #Phillies all have expressed interest.”
The 40 year old Ibanez hit .240 with 19 homeruns and 62 RBI last year for the Yankees primarily as the designated hitter. He spent three years with the Phillies from 2009-11 as their everyday leftfielder.
