CLEVELAND (AP) -- Free agent Nick Swisher is visiting the Cleveland Indians, who have a hole to fill in right field.

Swisher, who won a World Series in his first of four seasons with the New York Yankees in 2009, is scheduled to arrive in Cleveland on Monday night and will tour the team's facilities at Progressive Field on Tuesday.

Last week, the Indians traded right fielder Shin-Soo Choo to Cincinnati as part of a three-team, nine-player deal. The team can entice Swisher, who hit 24 homers last season for the Yankees, with the chance to be their full-time right fielder.

Swisher is a career .256 hitter in stops with the Athletics, White Sox and Yankees. He had 93 RBIs last season, as well, as New York won the American League East.
