After last night’s game where fans saw first baseman/outfielder Nick Swisher rotate and move his left shoulder around uncomfortably after a fifth inning at-bat, word came after the game that Swisher’s discomfort in that shoulder could land him on the disabled list, per Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer. “I’m grinding guys,” said Swisher. “I want to be in there every day regardless of what I got going on. Obviously, it’s starting to physically show a little bit.”   Swisher missed time earlier in the season because of shoulder soreness.   “I’ve been battling this shoulder thing the whole year. It’s super frustrating for me because I’ve never had something like this,” he said. “Either way, we have to figure out what is going on and then we will go from there.” As Hoynes points out in the article, Swisher is mired in a horrific slump at this time. If he goes on the disabled list, expect Lonnie Chisenhall to make a return from Columbus, where he has been hitting the cover off the ball (.386 average, 1.128 OPS in 26 games). In that scenario, Mark Reynolds would likely become the primary first baseman. Swisher is hitting .237 with 7 homers, 24 RBI, and a OPS of .739. Related: Tribe Rallies, Blows It On Costly Error
