Nick Swisher, Red Sox not talking now

The Red Sox have confirmed that for the time being they have “nothing planned” on a possible in-person visit with free agent outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher.

Swisher is visiting teams, including Cleveland, and planned to visit with an undisclosed team Wednesday.

The Red Sox are trying to work out a snafu in Mike Napoli’s contract in an effort to make that official.


If that should fall through, Swisher and Adam LaRoche appear to be fallback candidates.
