Quote to note

"I think there's more signs that he's becoming more dangerous at the plate, which is good. He's influenced quite a few games with one swing, which is great. I still think he's searching a little bit, where he's swinging at some offspeed pitches and swinging over them for the strikeouts. But, to his credit, regardless of what at-bat it is in the game, or what he's done up to that point, he can change the game with one swing and he knows that."

--Indians manager Terry Francona, on Swisher.
