Tigers | Detroit has no interest in Nick Swisher

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 15:06:33 -0800

The Detroit Tigers said no when the Atlanta Braves asked them about their interest in OF Nick Swisher.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher is more of a platoon player at this point in his career, but he has some appeal because of his ability to play both the outfield and first base. His power numbers have declined significantly in the last two years, too, as he's dealt with a plethora of injuries. Swisher is really only of interest in single-universe leagues or on FantasyScore because of a juicy matchup.

Braves | Atlanta shopping outfielders

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:30:26 -0800

The Atlanta Braves are aggressively shopping OFs Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher and Cameron Maybin at the general manager meetings this week, according to a rival official. However, Braves GM John Coppolella denies that the Braves are considering moving Maybin.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin had by far the best year of any Braves outfielder in 2015, but he tailed off considerably in the second half. Bourn and Swisher are platoon bats that only have value in deep mixed fantasy leagues. Maybin could be even more intriguing to fantasy owners if he's traded to a better situation.

Braves | ATL starters resting in Game 2

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 13:19:31 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin, SS Andrelton Simmons, OF Nick Markakis, 1B Nick Swisher and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: With nothing on the line, look for some of these players to possibly pinch-hit, but otherwise their regular season is over. Leave them out of your FantasyScore lineup.

Braves | Nick Swisher playing left field

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 13:10:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher will bat fifth and play left field against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Saturday, Sept. 26. OF Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 1-for-15 over the past week and hitless in three career at-bats versus Nicolino, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Braves | Freddie Freeman sitting out

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 12:37:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Freddie Freeman is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. 1B Nick Swisher is starting at first base and batting third, while OF Michael Bourn is starting in left field and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a fine value pick in daily lineups, as he's hitting 7-for-15 (.467) with two home runs in his career against Colon. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), on the other hand, is hitting only .176 (18-for-102) with the Braves since being traded and isn't worth your time on FantasyScore, especially while at the bottom of the lineup.

Braves | Nick Swisher not starting Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:46:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher is not starting Friday, Sept. 18, and OF Adonis Garcia is in Swisher's outfield spot. Garcia is hitting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has an .059 mark in the last week and his average is tailing off, so he is out of the lineup despite his switch-hitting capability. Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .312-6-15 at home and is doing well in his extended tryout with the team. He's definitely worth starting at the FantasyScore price.

Braves | No Nick Swisher vs. Nationals

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 12:24:51 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. OF Michael Bourn is starting in left field and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been a nice add to the middle of the Braves lineup. He owns a .822 OPS with three home runs and 11 RBI over his 22 game with Atlanta. Still, he is nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only seasonal leagues. Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is sporting an uninspiring .227/.301/.271 slash line this season, so FantasyScore players should chase more upside or better values around his price range.

Braves | Nick Markakis taking day off

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:05:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Adam Conley Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Nick Swisher moves over to right field and is hitting fifth, while 3B Adonis Garcia is starting in left field and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Both Swisher ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Garcia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) qualify as sleeper plays worth considering against the hittable Conley this afternoon, with Swisher likely giving you more bang for your buck.

Braves | Nick Swisher hitting second

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:17:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher is batting second in the lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) batted sixth and fourth in games over the weekend, including a .750 average in the fourth position. Swisher is also hitting .625 in left field, and this may be behind the move to put him higher in the order. He may be worth a flier at this price.

Braves | Nick Swisher ties record

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 17:52:27 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in a 9-7 loss to the Chicago Cubs Saturday, Aug. 22, and he tied a record by homering from both sides of the plate in the same game for the 14th time.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been playing on a regular basis recently, but he is hitting just .207 on the year. He really isn't worth using at FantasyScore.
