Pre-game Notes: Indians designate hitter Nick Swisher is not in tonight’s lineup, sitting out with a right wrist injury. Swisher left Sunday’s game late, being pinch-hit for in the ninth inning. Swisher had struck out in his first three at-bats, and said he “felt something – a little pull, a little tug” and went right down into the club house to get checked out.“I was just getting my swing back,” he lamented. “But this is kind of just a dad-to-day thing.”
