Indians | Nick Swisher out Thursday

Thu, 07 May 2015 10:06:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher is out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 7. OF David Murphy is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth in the order against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher just returned from the DL this week, so the Tribe is likely to ease him back into regular playing time. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) often starts against righties, but his at-bats may be tough to come by now that Swisher is back. Murphy is a disappointing .240 (12-for-50) against righties this year, and Volquez has been strong in his new digs in KC. Look to avoid Murphy today.
