From today's Baseball America Prospect Report:

"Oakland OF Nick Swisher is hitting .243 in June . . . with a .544 slugging (5 2B, 7 HR) and a remarkable .521 on-base percentage (43 walks against just 74 at-bats)."

Swisher is in Triple-A and could see time in the majors during September. He's well known to those that have read Moneyball. Sounds like he's a perfect fit for the Oakland style.
