NASHVILLE, Tenn. — While the Red Sox [1] have continued interest in free agent Nick Swisher [2], an industry source has indicated the first baseman/outfielder may wait until fellow free agent Josh Hamilton [3] agrees to a deal before signing with a team.

Though the Red Sox signed catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli [4] to a three-year, $39 million deal on Monday, the move has not taken them out of the running for Swisher, who hit .272/.364/.473 with 24 homers and 93 RBI last season for the Yankees [5].
