Nick Swisher Opts Out of Yankees Deal


Nick Swisher has announced that his comeback bid with the Yankees is over. Swisher has opted out of his minor league deal with the team and will spend the remainder of the 2016 season with his family and his daughter who was just born. And good for Nick.

Here is the exact quote from Swisher's Facebook page:



“After the birth of my second child, I’ve decided to take a step back and spend the rest of this season full time with my wife and two daughters,” Swisher wrote. “Make no mistake, I am not hanging it up. I love this game with the same amount of passion that I had as a rookie 12 years ago.


“I want to thank the Yankees for giving me the opportunity to return to the organization that I love so much and wish them nothing but success for the rest of 2016. Despite not being at the ballpark every day, I will continue to train on a daily basis and evaluate my options for next season at the appropriate time.”
