Swisher (knee) will start his rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus on Friday but could be looking at a prolonged rehab before rejoining the Indians, MLB.com reports. "I think what we've said all along is we want him to have the best chance of being healthy so he can come up and compete -- not hopefully get a hit and have to go 80 percent around the bases. That's not really helping anyone, especially as hard as he's worked. You want a guy to have a chance to go out there and be competitive, not just go from Point A to B," manager Terry Francona said.

Do I feel like I could go and DH for this team and contribute right now? Sure, but that's not all I want to do. I want to make sure I'm able to go to the outfield. I want to make sure I'm able to go to first base and make sure all my movements are fluid and smooth," Swisher said concerning a possible return date.
