• Physical passed, Swisher introduced by Indians

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jan 3, 2013
    Swisher passed his physical with the Cleveland Indians on Thursday and signed the four-year, $56 million, free-agent contract he agreed to last month. Nick Swisher is starting over not far from where his baseball career began. Francona's arrival in Cleveland also had an impact on Swisher. From the moment he walked into the media room at Progressive Field with a large group of family and friends, Swisher couldn't stop smiling and laughing. It was one of many rain delays the Indians and White Sox have endured in recent years, and somebody in the visitors' clubhouse at Progressive Field said aloud, "Apparently, God doesn't like Cleveland-Chicago baseball." Now, it is commonplace for players to put high-revenue teams on their no-trade list to increase the likelihood that they'll be offered money to waive the clause if one of those teams comes calling.
