Knee surgeries end season for Indians' Swisher

CLEVELAND (AP) Nick Swisher's disappointing second season with the Indians is over.

Swisher underwent surgery on both knees Wednesday, procedures the first baseman/outfielder hopes will alleviate pain and prolong his career. The 33-year-old has underperformed after getting a four-year, $56 million contract from the Indians before last season. He entered 2014 looking to improve on a sub-par first season with Cleveland, but he's not been able to produce and the Indians finally put him on the disabled list on Aug. 10.

The Indians said Swisher's surgery was in Los Angeles. He'll need 8 to 10 weeks to recover and is expected to make a full recovery.
