08:17 AM ET 11.26 | On the face of things, the Cleveland offseason sets up as one of selling. Yet, according to major-league sources, the Indians aren't limiting their search to improve, even while considering moves that seemingly will result in a step backward. In fact, club officials are checking in on most of the available players in trades and free agency, even ones who seemingly will be out of their financial reach. Case in point: Free-agent outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher. ... Swisher, though, is from Parkersburg, WV, a city not far from the Ohio border. He attended Ohio State University. And, like most players, he holds new Indians manager Terry Francona in high regard.

He's coming off shoulder surgery. He should pitch in 2013, but don't expect much. It might take him the season to get his shoulder built back up and find his command.

Swisher to the Indians makes a lot of sense. Swish is at his best when the games don't matter - and since Cleveland isn't making the playoffs, Swish doesn't have to worry about failing miserably and getting booed when it matters most.

Good riddance, Swisher.
