Nick Swisher has hired Dan Lozano as his new agent, reports FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal (Twitter link). There were reports earlier today that linked Swisher to Scott Boras, but instead it's Lozano who has added the Yankee outfielder to his list of clients, which includes such names as Albert Pujols, Michael Young and Jimmy Rollins. Swisher was formerly represented by Joe Bick.
Swisher has hit exactly 29 homers in each of two seasons as a Yankee, and he hit .288/.359/.511 in 635 plate appearances last year as the Yankees' everyday right fielder. The switch-hitter made his first All-Star team in 2010. Swisher, 30, will earn $9MM this year and the Yankees have the option of exercising a $10.25MM in 2012 or spending $1MM on a buyout.
