The Yankees will miss Nick Swisher. They already do.

Already down an outfielder and a first baseman and a boatload of home runs, the Yankees could use Swisher’s switch-hitting bat in either the outfield or at first base, considering the devastating injuries to Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira.

They elected not to pursue Swisher in free agency, and he signed a four-year, $56 million deal with the Indians. Swisher admitted yesterday he was initially “crushed’’ by the Yankees’ decision to move on without him. “That free-agent process is crazy, man,’’ he said.

Like he does with everything in his life, though, Swisher is making the most of the new situation of leadership with the Indians, bro.

Swisher will bat fourth and play first base. He loves the fact manager Terry Francona has chosen to bat him cleanup and he will not be bouncing around as he did in manager Joe Girardi’s lineup that had a lot more stars in it last season than it does now.

“There were a lot of lineup changes in New York,’’ Swisher said. “I was the guy in the lineup that bounced around. I’m not that guy anymore. I’m happy not to be that guy anymore. I’m happy to be in one spot every single day. Show up to the ballpark and know you’re going to be in one spot. I get comfortable in a spot and I just kind of take off.’’

Swisher is looking to soar with 100 RBIs, something he has never done.
