Nick Swisher undergoes surgery, is out for the year

Brohio might still be okay with it.

The Indians have announced that Nick Swisher is undergoing surgery on his knees today…

This season has been a disaster for Swisher, as he’s hitting just .208/.278/.331 in 401 plate appearances, with only 8 home runs, after hitting 20+ in nine consecutive seasons. That .208 batting average is second worst in the American League among qualified hitters, as is his .608 OPS. Factoring in his terrible defense this season, and Swisher has a case as the worst player in MLB this season, among starters.

Swisher is owed another $30 million over the next two seasons, and at this moment, I have a hard time seeing that work out well for the Tribe.
