Nick Swisher 1B/RF.. CLE 1 Month

Indians activated 1B Nick Swisher from the 15-day disabled list.

Swisher missed a little over two weeks with a hyperextended left knee. He was batting just .211/.312/.319 with three homers and 19 RBI in 49 games before the injury. The 33-year-old is serving as the Indians' designated hitter on Thursday night against the Red Sox.

Nick Swisher (knee) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Swisher will play in rehab games with Double-A Akron on Tuesday and Wednesday before being activated if all goes well. He's been out since late May with a hyperextended left knee but has gone through drills recently with no issues. "Everything is on track," said Swisher. "I'm a hyper guy, so it was nice to get out and move around a little bit the last two days."

Nick Swisher (knee) has begun "land-based" activities and believes he'll be ready for a rehab assignment soon.

Indians manager Terry Francona doesn't want to put a timetable on Swisher, but he acknowledges that his first baseman could be close to game action. "I think he's pretty upbeat about where he's at," Francona said. "[I said], 'Let's not have an artificial timetable. We want you back when you can come back and play and not be limping.' And he understands that. So at some point I'm thinking on this next road trip, he'll probably break away from us, go play a couple games and we'll see how he's doing."

Nick Swisher (knee) has been working out in a pool but could resume "land-based" drills on Monday.

Swisher has been out since Monday with a hyperextended left knee. Barring a setback, he should be ready to roll in early June when his 15 days are up.

Indians placed 1B Nick Swisher on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

Swisher suffered the injury in Monday's loss to the White Sox. He's also been battling some soreness in his right knee over the past week, but the hope is that he will be ready to be activated when his 15 days are up.

Nick Swisher left Monday's game against the White Sox in the eighth inning with a sore left knee.

Swisher just missed a couple games with a sore right knee, and now his other knee is bothering him. The Indians' team doctor examined him after the game and thinks the knee is structurally sound, but more will be known when he's re-evaluated Tuesday. Swisher seems likely to sit out at least a game or two even if an exam doesn't reveal anything serious.

Nick Swisher is back in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Swisher had missed the last two games with a sore knee, but he's ready to give it a go. The first baseman sports a disappointing .211/.313/.322 batting line with three homers and 18 RBI this season.

Nick Swisher (knee) remains out of the Indians starting lineup on Saturday.

He sustained a knee injury during Thursday's game and has now missed a pair of games as a precautionary measure. It doesn't appear as though he'll require a trip to the disabled list, so expect him to return at some point in the next few days.

Nick Swisher went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Indians defeated the Twins on Tuesday.

Swisher entered the night hitting .197 and exits hitting .206. His season-long slump has been a bit shocking considering how consistent he had been in the previous five years, but he is 33 years old and is coming off of a season in which he showed the least amount of power in the previous five years. Swisher is currently sitting on a .206/.292/.325 slash line.

Nick Swisher went 0-for-4 in Monday's loss to drop his average back under .200.

Swisher is in 0-for-10 and 2-for-25 slumps. He hasn't homered since April 12, and his only multi-RBI game of the year came on Apr. 4. The Indians might want to think about giving him a couple of days off. We didn't think he'd have much value in mixed leagues this year, but there was no reason to think he'd be this awful.
