Tuesday notes and links: Cleveland makes its pitch to Swisher

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 18, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Indians want to sign Nick Swisher, and they’re going after him college-recruiting style. From Jordan Bastian’s story…

According to Bart Swain, the Indians’ director of baseball information, Swisher arrived in Cleveland on Monday night and had dinner with team president Mark Shapiro, (general manager Chris) Antonetti and manager Terry Francona. Bullpen coach Kevin Cash, who was a teammate of Swisher’s with the Yankees in 2009, was also on hand. …

During Tuesday’s tour of Cleveland’s home ballpark, the Indians announced Swisher’s name over the loudspeakers and played his personal walk-up music. On the scoreboard above left field, the outfielder saw his image and was also treated to a special video message, which featured a handful of personalities (including Ohio State coaches Urban Meyer (football), Thad Matta (basketball) and Greg Beals (baseball) urging him to return to his home state.

Swisher was treated to lunch with Antonetti and Francona, as well as former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and former Buckeye football player Dustin Fox, who currently works as a radio host on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland. Swisher’s agent, Dan Lozano, was also present for the visit, which later included meetings with Shapiro, team CEO Paul Dolan and other executives.

The Indians seem to be pitching Swisher on the idea of coming back to Ohio, where he played college baseball at Ohio State. He would replace Shin-Soo Choo in right field and become a pivotal part of their lineup. In fact, he just might be their No. 3 hitter. He is reportedly going to meet with another team, but Seattle is reportedly out of the picture.

A few other notes from another quiet day for the Yankees:

• Yankees lefty Josh Spence cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A.

• Baseball America’s latest minor league transactions include some famliar names. Long man Chad Gaudin has signed with the Giants (though there’s a solid chance the Yankees have already traded for him). Up-and-down reliever Jonathan Albaladejo has signed with the Marlins (though there’s a chance the Yankees are ready to give up a future closer for him). Lefty Steve Garrison has signed with the Diamondbacks (I have no joke to insert about Steve Garrison). Lefty Mike O’Connor — who was a nice boost for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season — signed with the Twins, and righty Buddy Carlyle — who played a small role with the Yankees in 2011 — signed with the Blue Jays (Toronto just keeps getting better!!).

• The Indians made their Mark Reynolds signing official. In the process, they designated Russ Canzler for assignment. If the Yankees 40-man roster weren’t packed I might suggest putting a claim on Canzler. He has right-handed power and can play the four corners. He’s not a huge prospect, but a .289/.365/.508 slash line through nearly a thousand at-bats in the pitcher-friendly International League is worth noticing.

The Rays have finalized their deal with Roberto Hernandez (the former Fausto Carmona) on a one-year, $3.25-million contract that also has incentives.

• MLB Trade Rumors took a look at the potential market for Michael Bourn. The Yankees were included on the list as a bit of a long shot, but I’m having trouble buying into that idea. Just seems to me that they have similar (but cheaper) potential in Brett Gardner.

The Astros have signed former Yankees reliever Jose Veras.

    Vaya con Dios Nick.

    Buena Fortuna.

  2. MTU December 18th, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    And thanks for the draft pick too.

    ;)

  3. DocTodd December 18th, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Hope they didn’t post his postseason batting average on the Jumbotron along with his photo..

  4. Frankg December 18th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    The jokes are welcome, Chad. The Yankees have made some sorry moves over the years, and it’s good you have not forgotten.

    Perhaps, it would be better to have Canzler than Dickerson, since he’s right handed and can play the infield and outfield and has some power.

  5. RMS December 18th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Whichever team signs Swisher will get a solid player. If they make the postseason then he will fade away.

  6. austinmac December 18th, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    I like Ichiro, but his production will be nowhere near what Swisher has given. That will be as a significant a decline as catcher.

  7. raymagnetic December 18th, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    My guess, Suzuki-San will be more valuable than Nick Swisher next year.

  8. Tar December 18th, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Of course now that he’s not on the Yankees Swish will be amazing in October. And really all these Swisher post-season jokes is just tempting fates ( bad karma) if you ask me. If you’re not careful he might sends swarms of insects to attack our pitchers.

    Thanks Mr Swish for giving it your best. And for being a good dude, and being truly proud to wear the pinstripes. Good luck to you, as long as it’s not against the Yankees.

  9. Tyler December 18th, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    Swish is solid (in the regular season) but that is quite a production for him. He’s a good player but not one I’m building a lineup around especially if I have any postseason aspirations at all. He came as part of a salary dump and now he’s getting personalized messages from Urban Meyer… Thank you New York.

  10. Jerkface December 18th, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Swisher had the 2nd highest OBP & OPS on the team last year. If Ichiro replaces that it means either the yankees are in trouble or ichiro is destroying NYS.

  11. DaSaint007 December 18th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Best of luck to Nick Swisher. He was a breath of fresh air in that clubhouse and on this team. I was not a supporter of his acquisition, as it was a typical Cashman out-of-nowhere move, but he grew on me as a dependable player – just not during the post-season.

    I’m looking at a full season of Ichiro and Gardner to reinspire Granderson to revive his speed game, as well as giving the Yankees the best defensive OF in baseball.

  12. jacksquat December 19th, 2012 at 12:36 am

    If Ichiro hits like he did with the Yankees in 2012 and plays better defense he can be as valuable as Swisher.

  13. Spudz December 19th, 2012 at 1:12 am

    Some of these Cano guestimated contracts are LOL and just plain silly. 12 years? 15 years? Get real. Most he will get is 8. Nobody is going to sign a 31 year old 2b till he is 46 years old.

  14. Jerkface December 19th, 2012 at 1:25 am

    Its not guesstimations, but attempts to determine a contract that will skirt the CBA rules for the luxury tax.

  15. PacoDooley December 19th, 2012 at 6:04 am

    Amazing to me that Swish is being given the superstar treatment. He’s a nice complementary player with good OBP numbers and some power, but not a star (hence only one appearance in the All-star game) and at 32 years of age, you are not getting someone that will be part of the future of the franchise.

    —————-
    it just shows how weak the free agent pool is this year………..he is definitely a complimentary player not a number three hitter in a lineup

    Cleveland doesn’t land a lot of superstar free agents. It makes sense that they’re trying to win Swisher without just dollars alone.

  18. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 7:32 am

    Good morning-

    If the Dodgers can trade Andre Ethier fairly soon and his contract:

    13:$13.5M, 14:$15.5M, 15:$18M, 16:$16M, 17:$18M, 18:$17.5M club option ($2.5M buyout)
    2018 salary guaranteed with 550 plate appearances in 2017 or 1,100 PAs in 2017-18

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Nick Swisher dons Dodger “green.”

  19. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 7:33 am

    Swisher was a very valuable player these last years. Those who think Ichiro can remotely be as productive have not looked at Ichiro’s stats for the last two years. He had two good offensive spurts with the Yankees. He is a singles hitter with a low OPB.

    The Cubs are said to want a top prospect for Soriano. Please no. Cashman said in the Post today to get the help he wants may take until June. That’s not overly encouraging.

  20. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:34 am

    I don’t think Swish is getting superstar treatment…. He’s simply getting market value for what he is…..swisher is just as good as Ethier and he got 85 million……

    The yanks are gonna miss Swish….all fans remember are his cold streaks….they forget about all the times he actually carried the lineup on his hot ones and how consistent he was year to year…..

    Swish couldn’t hit in the playoffs for what ever reason but he was a big reason they got there every year and in 2013 we may see evidence of that…..

  21. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:35 am

    Why would the Dodgers eat money to trade Etheir and then turn around and spend to sign a similar player in Swisher? That even seems crazy for the dodgers

  22. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:36 am

    Cashman says every winter that he may have wait til the trade deadline….and then they never do anything at the deadline

  23. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:37 am

    Cash never likes the deadline prices

  24. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 7:38 am

    “Righty Buddy Carlyle — who played a small role with the Yankees in 2011 — signed with the Blue Jays (Toronto just keeps getting better!!).”
    ————————————-

    Ramon Ortiz, the Yankees best starter at AAA last season, has also signed another minor league contract with the new beasts of the East, the Blue Jays.

  25. Ys Guy December 19th, 2012 at 7:39 am

    you gotta think swishwer’s loving all the sis-boom-bah crap the indians are hitting him with.

    it won’t be so much fun in cleveland in august.

  26. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 7:43 am

    Cashman doesn’t like the prices any time in money or players. Swisher will get market value. I should note for those who think Ichiro is as good, he will get less than half the annual salary of Swisher. That tells us exactly how the baseball world values the players.

  27. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 7:44 am

    Blake-

    There are still teams that can easily fit Ethier’s salary, looking for a bat and having difficulty attracting free agents———-like the Mariners.

    In fact, after looking at the Mariners top 10 prospects, I’d like to see if the Yankees could swing a trade of Granderson to them.

    http://www.baseballamerica.com.....14406.html

    Can we come up with a trade?

  28. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:48 am

    Trader,

    Hard to say…. I guess we shall see

  29. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 7:49 am

    If the Yankees wait until the deadline and trade Granderson, they will take a hit on potential return from the trading partner. I believe if the acquiring team doesn’t resign him they can’t offer him the qualifying offer to net a compensatory pick- a rule for any free agent to be acquired in season.

    Am I correct?

  30. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:51 am

    Yea if they are gonna trade Grandy then do it now

  31. AAA December 19th, 2012 at 7:52 am

    YT:

    You are correct.

  32. Doreen December 19th, 2012 at 7:52 am

    Good morning -

    A point about the trade deadline this year – the Yankees may be sellers and not buyers….

    Swisher will definitely definitely be missed. Ichiro will not be able to equal the production that Swisher gave during the regular season. Ichiro should not play every day – that’s his best bet for having a good season for the Yankees.

    But, I can understand the Yankees not wanting to give Swisher a 4 or 5 or 6 year contract. If he could have been had for 3, that would have been okay (not that the Yankees would have gone for that either in this climate). But precisely because the FA market is on the weak side, Swisher was going to get a better deal than the Yankees really ever would have been likely to give, financial austerity or not. Good for Swisher; he did well on a consistent basis in a very tough market, playoff heeby-jeebies notwithstanding. And he added some color to a very vanilla clubhouse.

    I think he ends up not in Cleveland, though.

  33. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 7:52 am

    Blake-

    Philly, Braves, and M’s are all still potential landing spots for Curtis.

    I’m not sure he’s going anywhere though.

    The Yankees need to change their M.O. when it comes to things like extensions, and trading away players who can’t be signed going forward.

  34. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 7:53 am

    Now, we Yankee fans get our satisfaction by talking about all the players signing for too much money with other teams. I do believe our front office has successfully convinced much of its fans they are the smart ones for not shopping at the high end stores.

    This one last effort is a weak effort. The TD will more likely be a selling time than a buying one.

    No one but a Yankee fan views our starters as dominant or among the best in the game. Others see the many question marks from age, surgery and inconsistency. In my eyes, our starters are capable but not good enough to carry a weak hitting team.

  35. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 7:56 am

    The Yankees wouldn’t offer Swisher a three year deal. They don’t do that this year. It impacts 2014. They only do that if the players are about to turn 40 evidently. Martin and Swisher were evidently too young to consider it.

  36. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 7:58 am

    Thanks AAA. I believe you answered that same question on midseason trades of free agents on a prior post.

  37. blake December 19th, 2012 at 7:58 am

    “The Yankees need to change their M.O. when it comes to things like extensions, and trading away players who can’t be signed going forward.”

    They need to pick a lane….either operate like the Yankees or operate like everybody else…..the middle is a bad place to be

    ===================================

    You can probably start by removing the 1st five names on the list and Capps from consideration.

    Probably something like Maurer, Sanchez and maybe Franklin Gutierrez

  39. AAA December 19th, 2012 at 8:00 am

    Thanks AAA. I believe you answered that same question on midseason trades of free agents on a prior post.

    ======================

    And you retained said information. Sorta makes it all worthwhile. :)

  40. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:04 am

    Blake-

    “the middle is a bad place to be”

    Trying to walk the tightrope between being competitive and rebuilding.

    Between the past and the future.

    Is there a safety net underneath them, or are doing so in a dangerous way ?

    Even chickens know enough to cross the road instead of following the yellow lines.

    Don’t want to see the Yankees wind up as roadkill.

  41. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 8:04 am

    Blake-

    I believe that lane has been picked for them for the next few years thru the CBA. There will be no costly extensions, just patchwork, awaiting the rise of the baby Bombers. Hopefully the Yankees will fast track some of the legit ones at A ball and give them a chance to play.

  42. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 8:07 am

    AAA-

    I knew that I could awaken you from your slumber, to get your knowledgeable input! :)

  43. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:10 am

    YT-

    IMO relying on the Farm to fill a large portion of your needs is very risky buisness.

    The odds of the Yankees ever producing another core 4, or even core 2 are pretty damn low.

    Most prospects fall to injury, or underperform expectations.

    The Yankees will always need to supplement their team from the outside in the majority of instances.

    They are not the Rays or the Twins even though they may be trying be.

    I’m stting my Time Machine for 4/1/2015. That’s when the money starts to flow again.

    Looking forward to using that financial edge again.

  44. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 8:11 am

    Wouldn’t we be thrilled if the Yankees added a player who put up Swisher’s stats? Therefore, I will not be happy about losing such production.

    The looked old last year to my eyes. They have only made it worse. No youth anywhere in sight.

    It is better to rebuild one year too soon than one year too late. They should have been working on it for several years. They are about the oldest team I can ever remember.

  45. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 8:16 am

    Relying on prospects who have not succeeded in AA is the height of foolishness. We don’t know if any of those players will play in the MLB, much less be good players.

    The Royals and others have had far better rated systems, and look what relying on it has done. As our friend MTU says, they must have a balanced approach. That requires spending real money on players to fill needs.

    Another day in which our competitors try to improve.

  46. austinmac December 19th, 2012 at 8:18 am

    MTU,

    The Yankees have never said they will spend after 2014. There is further incentive for them not too.

    Why do you think they will?

  47. AAA December 19th, 2012 at 8:21 am

    The Yankees have never said they will spend after 2014. There is further incentive for them not too.

    ============================

    Fair point. I don’t think the Yankees will be boxed in the way they seem to be this year and next, but I also don’t see them reverting to a time when they were spending $60M-$70M more on payroll than the team with the 2nd highest payroll.

  48. raymagnetic December 19th, 2012 at 8:22 am

    Money doesn’t determine goodness

  49. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 8:23 am

    Austinmac-

    It is better to rebuild one year too soon than one year too late. If they indeed felt that Swisher would not be offered an extension or resigned then they should have traded him.

    On the other hand I guess they weren’t counting on Pineda coming to camp unprepared, all the injuries, and the decline on production from most of their position players.

    Therefore, if possible, get what you can for Granderson before the season starts.

  50. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:23 am

    Mac-

    It might take till 2016. That’s true. Just hope it’s a litte sooner.

    I hope Cashman is trying his best to move some of our excess assets in trade.

    He should be doing that IMO. I agree with you. rebuild a year earlier opposed to a year too late.

    No evidence yet. Still hoping a match can be found.

  51. Frankg December 19th, 2012 at 8:27 am

    One thing is for sure. If they trade Granderson, they are not likely to get the same package of high quality players they traded to get him— Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson and Phil Coke.

    Because of this experience and others (eg Tyler Clippard, Melky Cabrera, George Kontos), I am gald that Cashman has not made any trades this winter.

  52. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:28 am

    “Money doesn’t determine goodness.”

    No. Not totally. But it gives you an edge that can be exploited if you use it well.

    Using your financial edge poorly won’t help. You’re right about that.

    I like having all the weapons we can at our disposal though.

    They just have to choose their targets carefully.

    Total reliance on a farm is not something the Yankees should be doing.

    That is for small market teams. They have no choice.

  53. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:32 am

    Frank-

    IMO you are throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

    Teams always make good and bad trades.

    No team is always gonna be on the long end of the stick all the time.

    But stopping an essential process like trading because you don’t trust the judgement of the people who are assigned to that job just seems foolish.

    Change the people. Don’t eliminate a necessary and essential tool.

    That’s my 2 cents.

  54. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:33 am

    Or improve your decision making.

    Either way.

    The show must go on.

    “Wouldn’t we be thrilled if the Yankees added a player who put up Swisher’s stats? Therefore, I will not be happy about losing such production.”

    There best shot to do that and stay on budget was Melky at 2/18

  57. AAA December 19th, 2012 at 8:40 am

    One thing is for sure. If they trade Granderson, they are not likely to get the same package of high quality players they traded to get him— Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson and Phil Coke

    =================================

    They’re definitely not getting the same package. Yankees were trading for FOUR years of Granderson’s services at a reasonable price. Anyone trading for Granderson now, is trading for 1 year of service.

  58. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:41 am

    It’s too bad you can’t make nearly as much money in baseball as you can in the auto industry or I’d recommend we get the current CEO of Ford to be our new GM.

    Her understands quality, and how to take an aging, faltering entity back to it’s orignial glory.

    How to revitalize, streamline, etc.

    Not sure Brian Cashman does.

    Guess we’ll see.

  59. blake December 19th, 2012 at 8:41 am

    “I believe that lane has been picked for them for the next few years thru the CBA. There will be no costly extensions, just patchwork, awaiting the rise of the baby Bombers.”

    That’s not a good plan though…..

  60. Yankee Trader December 19th, 2012 at 8:43 am

    Let’s find a righty power hitter that fits the bill of either cheap or cheap and on a one year contract.

    Let’s focus on Plan B as if Upton won’t be a Yankee, and Granderson is traded for mainly prospects.
    Need someone who can play a decent corner OF position and can hit homers:

    Michael Morse
    Micheal Cuddyer-not particularly cheap
    Josh Willingham
    Alfonso Soriano-if most salary picked up by Cubs
    Justin Maxwell
    Justin Ruggiano
    Allen Craig

    Any matches?

  61. blake December 19th, 2012 at 8:43 am

    If they could get one top 100 prospect that played a position they are weak at for Granderson then it’d probably be worth trading him IF they could replace Granderson’s production short term.

    I think 2013 is the last of a window for the Yanks to win a title and they can’t just trade Grandy unless they can replace him for next year first…..

  62. PacoDooley December 19th, 2012 at 8:43 am

    The Swisher trade, which looked fantastic while he was producing in NY, will look even more spectacular if/when he also nets them a sandwich pick. Too bad signing in Cleveland wouldn’t also move them up a slot in the draft order (since I believe Cleveland has a protected pick).

  63. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:44 am

    edit: he. It’s not a Lady. Duh.

  64. blake December 19th, 2012 at 8:44 am

    If MTU could will his Justin Upton trade into life and then trade Grandy then that’d be great…..or if Bourn or Swisher would do a one year deal and then trade Grandy etc…..

    But I don’t think they can afford to lose his offense for 2013 without adding back

  65. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:45 am

    paco-

    Proof that sometimes we get it right.

    See my post to Frank above.

  67. blake December 19th, 2012 at 8:49 am

    “Let’s find a righty power hitter that fits the bill of either cheap or cheap and on a one year contract.”

    I like morse if te right is reasonable….hits righties and lefties….can fake RF well enough to platoon etc

    Also like Trumbo for that same role by figure he’d cost more.

    If the Angels would do Trumbo for Hughes straight up then is do that and sign EJax to a 3 year deal assuming the AAV is 10 or less

  68. MTU December 19th, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Blake-

    I have to say the great weight of the evidence so far favors YT and Mac’s POV.

    That we are not getting anyone of signifcance.

    Just more patches.

    But I’m keeping my powder dry till ST starts.

    2014 concerns me more than 2013.

    rebuilding should begin now.

    Perhaps a year early rather than a year late as Mac stated.

    Alfonso Soriano-if most salary picked up by Cubs
    Justin Maxwell
    Justin Ruggiano
    Allen Craig

    Any matches?
    —————————————

    How did Maxwell’s season end up last year? I remember checking early in the year and he had been struggling. He looked good in the spring for the Yankees and I had hoped he would stick with the team at that time.

    YT-

    Yup. For a while. Some in the back yard right now at 3,000 ft.

    High temp for today will be 35 degrees.

    Brrrrrr !!!

    Send that blue sky and warmth back. It belongs to us.

    This here is putting a crimp in my style.

    Hughes for Trumbo
    Sign EJax for 3/30

    You have a cost controlled bat and also a pitcher on a reasonable contract to replace Hughes and eat up some innings next year.

    Jeter SS
    Ichiro RF
    Cano 2B
    Tex 1B
    Trumbo DH
    Granderson LF
    Youk 3B
    AJP C
    Gardner CF

    Sabathia
    Kuroda
    Pettite
    Jackson
    Nova/ Phelps

    That’s a pretty strong club

    I’m not interested in combing thru the bargain bin.

    I’ll leave that to you guys, and Brian.

    You generally get what you pay for.

    I still don’t think Bourne will get what he is looking for… there is nothing he does exceptionally well offensively… yes even in stealing bases.

    YT-

    Like to ski ?

    We have the best powder on Earth.

    Or so I’m told.
