From Jordan Bastian of MLB.com comes word that Nick Swisher will not play in the Indians’ game Tuesday night against the Phillies because of left shoulder soreness. The right fielder might also sit out Wednesday, but it’s not considered a serious injury and he is fully expected avoid the disabled list.

Swisher is batting .265/.386/.410 with two homers and nine RBI through 101 plate appearances this season. The 32-year-old signed a four-year, $56 million free agent deal with the Tribe in December.

Ryan Raburn is starting in right field on Tuesday against the visiting Phils.

      What a stupid comment, #1 unlike most bluejays Swisher is rarely on the DL and #2 if he was on the jays he would be leading the team in batting average!! go back in your cave and get a clue!!

    Doesn’t seem to be hurting them tonight considering they’re winning 12-1 in the top of the 6th.
