Nick Swisher returns to Indians' lineup

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has returned to the lineup after missing six games with a sore left shoulder. The switch-hitter is batting cleanup against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.

Swisher hasn't played since June 15. He's been playing with the shoulder injury for most of the season and received a cortisone injection last week.

The injury has affected Swisher's production at the plate. He is in a 6 for 55 slump and his average has dropped to .237 with seven homers and 24 RBIs.

Swisher signed a 4-year, $56 million contract with the Indians in January.
