Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE
The Cleveland Indians have offered contracts to Nick Swisher and Kevin Youkilis.
ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that Youkilis is deciding between playing for the Indians and former manager Terry Francona for two years and $18 million or playing for the Yankees on a one-year, $12 million contract.
Olney is also reporting that Cleveland is in the best position to sign Swisher.
Indians general manager Chris Antonetti told Hoynes that he was "pretty busy" at the baseball winter meetings and is hoping to "build on the foundation" that was laid at the meetings and "get some things pushed across the finish line."
