Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Indians continue to pursue outfielder Nick Swisher and corner infielder Kevin Youkilis.

The Cleveland Indians continue to pursue outfielder Nick Swisher and corner infielder Kevin Youkilis, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN and Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

While the Indians were initially hoping to sign Swisher to a four-year contract in the $50 million range, a recent "market shift" has him seeking $60 million over four years, according to Bowden.

Meanwhile, Cleveland continues to target Youkilis, who reportedly has multiple two-year offers on the table. The Indians are one of the teams that have offered the corner infielder a contract, and Pluto says it could be higher than $18 million over two years.

Swisher hit .272/.364/.473 with 36 doubles and 24 home runs over 537 at-bats for the New York Yankees last season. The 32-year-old owns a career line of .256/.361/.467 over nine years at the major league level.

Youkilis, who owns a career line of .283/.384/.482, hit a combined .235/.336/.409 with 15 doubles and 19 home runs with the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox last season.
