In effect, the team will only be paying him 15M because the 2.5M buyout is already spent money. That being said Nick Markakis will be a year younger than Nick Swisher in 2015 and the Indians will be paying HIM 15M. A LOT of people on this forum wanted us to sign Swisher last winter, and IMO I wouldn't trade Markakis for Swisher.
