The move clears a spot on the active 25-man roster for top shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor, who is joining the Indians on Sunday. Swisher, who underwent surgery on both of his knees last August, is batting just .198/.261/.297 in 111 plate appearances this season. He’ll probably be out longer than 15 days.
