Braves release Nick Swisher, send Alex Torres down

Tough break, brah.

Nick Swisher was a player without a spot on the rebuilding Braves. Injuries and age had robbed him of many of the skills he had earlier in his career and while he did have some positional flexibility, he wasn’t necessarily a desirable option at any of the positions he could play.

After acquiring Swisher in the trade that essentially shuffled bad contracts around with the Indians (sending Chris Johnson to the Indians and taking on Michael Bourn as well), the Braves tried to trade Swisher during the entire offseason. Despite a serviceable spring training stint, no teams bit on a trade offer and the Braves decided to eat the money owed to Nick and gave him his unconditional release….

The Braves will owe Swisher $15 million this season, although some of that was covered by the cash received in the trade with the Indians last season.
