Swisher & Cano News…

by Matt S.

Yankees exercised OF Nick Swisher’s $10.25 million option for 2012.

Swisher, 30, batted .260/.374/.449 with 23 home runs and 85 RBI in 635 plate appearances this season for the American League East champion Yankees. The decision to exercise the option comes as no surprise.

Yankees exercised 2B Robinson Cano’s $14 million option for 2012.

A no-brainer move. Cano, 29, batted .302/.349/.533 with 28 home runs and 118 RBI in 681 plate appearances this season before raking in the ALDS against the Tigers. He’s a bargain at $14 million and will be a bargain at $15 million in 2013. The Yankees also exercised Nick Swisher’s club option for 2012, worth $10.25 million.
