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.

Braves | Nick Swisher playing left field

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:17:17 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher will bat sixh and play left field against Chicago Cubs SP Dan Haren Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is just 4-for-25 (.160) with a home run and four RBIs since joining the Braves. Better low-cost options are available in FantasyScore and his performance this season shouldn't inspire much confidence in owners.

Braves | Nick Swisher's playing time to dry up

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:40:52 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher is likely to see his playing time reduced with the return of 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) from the disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 19. Swisher started six of the last nine games at first base with Freeman out. Freeman is likely to play every day as long as he's healthy, and manager Fredi Gonzalez admitted he's not sure where Swisher will fit in. Swisher's surgically repaired knees have decreased his mobility, so it might be tough for him to play much in the outfield. Swisher was 3-for-22 (.136) with a double, home run and four RBI in seven games since being traded to Atlanta, with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: With Swisher ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) likely moving to a bench role, he's no longer attractive to those in deep mixed leagues anymore. He won't be very useful on FantasyScore, either, if he's not playing very often.

Braves | Nick Swisher sitting vs. Friars

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:43:48 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. 1B Joey Terdoslavich is starting at first base and batting seventh against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is 3-for-22 with a home run and eight strikeouts since joining the Braves. His career trajectory is heading in the wrong direction for fantasy purposes. Terdoslavich ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Tuesday, as he owns a measly .208/.236/.337 slash line over 55 plate appearances this season.

Braves | Nick Swisher out Sunday

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 07:49:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 1B Joey Terdoslavich will start at first base and hit seventh in the order against RHP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Terdoslavich's ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) last three hits have been doubles, and he has some upside to offer, while also offering tremendous cap relief on FantasyScore.

Braves | Nick Swisher in the lineup

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 14:28:32 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher is hitting fifth Saturday, Aug. 8, in his first game with the club.

Fantasy Tip: Give Swish ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) a few days to get his feet under him after missing most of the season. Keep him in mind on FantasyScore moving forward.

Braves | Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn coming Saturday

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:53:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves 1B Nick Swisher (knee) and OF Michael Bourn will be in uniform Saturday, Aug. 8, and Swisher is ready to come off the disabled list. He can play some first base with 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) on the disabled list. Bourn could see time in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) won't see their fantasy value fluctuate all that much with the trade. Owners in NL-only leagues will benefit the most, and Swisher's short-term value at first base can be helpful, especially for those that lost Freeman again.

Braves | Atlanta adds Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 12:29:47 -0700

The Atlanta Braves acquired OFs Nick Swisher (knee), Michael Bourn and cash considerations from the Cleveland Indians for 3B Chris Johnson Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Adonis Garcia ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) was already receiving the majority of starts at the hot corner, so he'll see everyday at-bats and has flashed some pop with four home runs through his first 52 plate appearances this season. Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is still rehabbing his knee injury, but could fill in at first base while Freddie Freeman ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is out. Bourn ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) projects to compete for playing time with Eury Perez ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Cameron Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap).

Indians | Tribe add Chris Johnson

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 12:23:17 -0700

The Cleveland Indians acquired 3B Chris Johnson from the Atlanta Braves for OFs Nick Swisher (knee), Michael Bourn and financial considerations Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should see semi-regular at-bats as the designated hitter and grab some playing time away from 23-year-old Giovanny Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) at third base. It has been a disastrous past two seasons for Johnson, though, and currently, he hardly tips the fantasy scales in the majority of formats. Check back for updates on who will take over regular center field duty for the Indians.
