Swisher Seeks Yankees Chance After Atlanta Release

Following his release from the Atlanta Braves less than a year after the Indians traded him and Michael Bourn for Chris Johnson, Nick Swisher is looking for another opportunity with the Yankees, having spent three years with the team previously. However, having so far only been selected for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, Swisher believes it is his time to shine once again for his beloved team.

Since rejoining the Yankees organization, Swisher has been in good form, hitting .357 with three homers, six RBI’s and .863 in 11 games, whilst playing from first base. Now with the Yankees preparing to face off against long standing rivals the Boston Red Sox this weekend, Swisher is determined to earn a chance at right field. Having played their during his four seasons with the Yankees, the thirty five year old firmly believes he can more than do a job there again if called upon. With little to choose between the two teams going into this weekend’s game, the Yankees are 1.83/1 on to secure victory with bookmakers Betway.

Despite the rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox perhaps not being what is was a decade ago, a trip to Fenway Park always attracts much attention from supporters and players alike. Manager Joe Girardi is one man who will certainly be hoping his players rise to the occasion this weekend, with the Yankees in a run of poor form. Having been five years since either side achieved ninety wins in a single season, the Yankees has missed out on the playoffs twice in the past three seasons, while the Red Sox have finished in last place three times in the past four seasons. It is little wonder Betway offer odds of 26/1 and 13/1 respectively for the two sides to win this year’s World Series.

The Red Sox are the form team going into the fixture having won their last four games, while the Yankees find themselves ranked fourteenth in runs scored so far this campaign.
