Reds at Indians: Pregame lineup and notes

By Marla Ridenour Published: August 5, 2014

*Indians manager Terry Francona said Nick Swisher (sore right wrist) will take regular batting practice and is vastly improved. Francona said Swisher might be available to pinch-hit tonight, but if not, perhaps tomorrow in Cincinnati. He isn't sure about the weekend series against the Yankees because he wasn't sure of their starting pitchers.

*Francona laid out the Indians' plan for Michael Bourn's rehab games as he returns from a left hamstring injury. Bourn is playing tonight for Double-A Akron. Francona said Bourn is scheduled to go five innings today, seven innings tomorrow, then have an off day. Then he will go seven, seven, off, nine and nine. He said the preference would be to keep Bourn in Ohio, so when Columbus comes home he will switch over to the Clippers.

Game: 7:05 p.m. at Progressive Field
