Indians' Nick Swisher looking at a mid-March return
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians designated hitter Nick Swisher is looking at a mid-March return, according to MLB.com.

Swisher had surgery on both knees last August, but has no restrictions for hitting or throwing during camp. The club will gradually ramp up his running activities in the coming weeks. Swisher is hoping to start outfield drills in about two weeks. The club believes he'll be cleared for games by mid-March.

The 34-year-old Swisher hit .208/.278/.331 over 360 at-bats last year.

Indians' Swisher continues to progress in recovery from knee surgery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians first baseman/outfielder Nick Swisher said Tuesday he has been cleared for full hitting coming off knee surgery, per MLB.com. Swisher, who is also working through a running program, said he has suffered no setbacks and his checkups on the knee have gone well.

"It's been such a long time for me," Swisher said. "My excitement level, my passion and fire, it's back, man. I'm excited to just get going."

Swisher's name was mentioned in offseason trade rumors. However, he said general manager Chris Antonetti never called him, so Swisher took it as a sign the rumors did not have serious momentum.

"Chris and I have a great relationship," Swisher said. "It wasn't like there was a lot of stuff out there. It was offseason chatter, just like there is every offseason. This is a classy organization. Ever since I came over here, 'respect' is a big word in here. So I wasn't worried about that stuff. They would've called way ahead of anything."

Nick Swisher finds himself, ready for new season in Cleveland
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Indians outfielder Nick Swisher knew Cleveland was shopping him during the offseason. While recovering from a knee injury that forced him to miss 65 games, Swisher was beached on the couch, reading the Internet, filled with rumors about him.

"When you're going through those tough times," Swisher said Thursday to cleveland.com, "the love and passion for the game start to go away a little bit and you have to find something inside yourself to bring all that back. Whatever it was, I found it and I have it again and I could not be more happy for that."

Swisher found the motivation he needed to get back in shape and lost 15 pounds. After trying to play through the knee injury, Swisher admitted he should have had the surgery much sooner.

"I tried to battle through and be a tough guy," Swisher said. "To go out and not perform the way that you want to is obviously very stressful."

He hit a career low in 2014, going for a .208 average with eight home runs and 42 RBI.

"This organization paid me a lot of money for me to come over here and be on the field," Swisher said. "Whether I was healthy, I wanted to be out there every single day. Maybe that was the right call. Maybe it wasn't."

Indians' Francona: Right now, David Murphy is our right fielder
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday outfielder David Murphy is penciled in as the starting right fielder since there are too many unknowns with Nick Swisher (knee) and Brandon Moss (hip) coming off surgeries.

"Right now, Murph's our right fielder," Francona said, per MLB.com.

Murphy started a team-high 109 games in right field for Cleveland in 2014. He hit .262 with eight home runs, 25 doubles and 58 RBI in 129 games.

Report: Indians' Nick Swisher not generating much trade interest
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While the Indians have reportedly made first baseman/outfielder Nick Swisher available in a trade, there hasn't been much interest, according to FOX Sports reporter Jon Morosi. The Indians acquired first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss in a trade with the Athletics on Monday.

Swisher, who hit .208 in 97 games in 2014, is owed $30 million over the next two seasons. He also has a $14 million vesting option for 2017.
