Weekly Prospects Check In: Nick Swisher


Don't mind me, I'm just eating crow. I am eating crow because I was convinced that I had read that Nick Swisher had a June 15th opt-out date in his minor league contract and I was also convinced that he was going to exercise it too. Why wouldn't he? The Yankees signed him as first base depth for Mark Teixeira and as Swisher watched Dustin Ackley go down he watched Chris Parmelee come up. As Swisher watched Teixeira go down he watched Robert Refsnyder come up. As Swisher watched Parmelee go down he watched as Ike Davis came up. All while sitting down in Triple-A with the Scranton RailRiders.

It seems as though Swisher is going to stick it out, at least for a little while, so we're going to keep rooting for him as long as he's here.
