Swisher sits on Sunday

Posted: Updated:

Nick Swisher took Sunday off after aggravating his left shoulder during the Tribes 7-6 loss to the Nationals the night before. Swisher had noticeable discomfort in the 5th inning when he still managed to get an RBI single to center scoring Mike Aviles.

The team will know more about his situation on Monday, but manager Terry Francona said after Sunday's win that he did not think Swisher would have to go on the Disabled List.

Swisher missed time earlier in the season with a shoulder injury that kept him out of the lineup for a few games. Mark Reynolds played 1st for Sunday's game, John McDonald got the start at 3rd base.
