Nick Swisher does not have a large repertoire

Nick Swisher came in and pitched the last frame of the Yankees’ blowout loss tonight. Let’s just say that in spite of way better results than Wang had tonight, this is not going to be how Swisher gets an every-day starting job. Pitch f/x says Swisher threw 21 changeups and one fastball. I’m pretty sure they were all supposed to be fastballs. And yet, he did manage to strike someone out. Gabe Kapler managed to strike out waving at what was literally Swisher’s only pitch that missed a bat. I sort of hope that was charity, but I think Gabe might get to resume his managerial career soon.
