The Cleveland Indians are slowly improving after a disastrous start, and Nick Swisher may be a key component in the Tribe's comeback.
Even though Swisher is only hitting .226, his presence allows everyone else to return to their roles in the lineup.
Plus, Swisher is a positive force in the clubhouse no matter how he's performing at the plate.
Also, David Murphy knew he was on the bubble after Swisher returned, and he has improved his batting average to .330.
Hopefully, the Tribe will get another boost now that catcher Yan Gomes is back from his injury. Roberto Perez is much more effective as a backup.
Cleveland (20-24) is running out time to reach .500 by the end of May, but hopefully they will get close enough to start chasing the Tigers and Royals this summer.Read more... Join the Conversation...
