Sure he may hit 25 HRs, but would you want Matt Stairs on your fantasy team? That is basically what he will be: Mike Cameon without the SBs.
I would have to say Ignuchi or Reed out of the people listed, but what about Wright?
+1 to the comments on Swisher's overratedness. His price probably still fits in w/ 'Moneyballism' but I don't see any of his numbers projecting into major major league success just yet. I've not seen him hit though.
I think Wright no longer qualifies as a rookie but I think he'll be pretty decent too.
