Player Notes
Nick Swisher (knees) went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's Cactus League loss to the Giants.

Advice: In his first Cactus League action of spring, Swisher came out swinging. The first baseman had an RBI single in the fourth inning off postseason hero Madison Bumgarner, a tough first assignment for Swisher. He'll still likely start the year on the disabled list -- Swisher served as the designated hitter Wednesday -- but shouldn't require too much time to get up to speed.

Nick Swisher (knees) played in a minor league game Thursday.

Advice: He was cleared after testing out his surgically-repaired knees with some sliding drills prior to the game. "He slid on the mat," said Indians manager Terry Francona. "He needed to do that. You can't let a guy get in a game without being able to slide because you never know what can happen." Swisher has made nice progress recently but will begin the season on the disabled list.

Nick Swisher (knees) told reporters Monday that his base-running workout Sunday "went great."

Advice: Swisher ran the bases for the first time without wearing any braces. He is recovering from surgery on both of his knees and is expected to open the 2015 season on the 15-day disabled list. When he's activated, he'll DH and play some right field.

Nick Swisher (knees) will primarily play outfield or serve as the team's designated hitter when he returns.

Advice: Swisher has been a first baseman for the majority of his time with the Indians, but the thinking is that the position would be too hard on his surgically repaired knees. The 34-year-old ran the bases Friday and will run the bases Sunday without knee braces. He's making progress, but Swisher will still likely open the year on the disabled list.
