The Indians are in pursuit of Nick Swisher and Kevin Youkilis.
Swisher played last year with the Yankees. He can play outfield and first base. The 32 year old switch hitter slugged 24 homers last year and drove in 92 runs. He hit 272. According to multiple reports the Tribe is offering four years and somewhere between 48-50 million dollars. But Swisher might be looking for closer to 60.
Youkilis is being pursued by two teams, Cleveland and the Yankees. Reports indicate that New York is offering one year and 12 million, the Indians are at two years and 18 million. Youkilis can play first and third. He batted only 235 last year and will be 34 next season.
