Swisher to return?
By Jason Catania
After missing the past three games with a sore shoulder, Nick Swisher is hoping to make it back Saturday.
The Indians think Swisher's shuttling between right field and first base caused the shoulder to bark, according to Dennis Manoloff of the Plain Dealer. Swisher, though, said he has no issues when it comes to playing both spots.
The 32-year-old switch-hitter hasn't played since Monday, April 29, and the Indians have used Ryan Raburn as the fill-in in right. Raburn has been on fire, too, going 11 for his last 18 with four home runs.
Manoloff reports that Swisher likely will be either at first base or DH against the Twins Saturday, but he will not play right field.
