Indians | Nick Swisher, Carlos Santana to DL

The Cleveland Indians placed OF Nick Swisher (knee) on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee hyperextension Tuesday, May 27, and also put C Carlos Santana (concussion) on the 7-day concussion DL. In corresponding moves, the club recalled INF Jesus Aguilar and C George Kottaras from Triple-A Columbus and designated RP Blake Wood for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Lonnie Chisenhall, who has really been hitting well this year, should take over full time at third base with Santana sidelined. Even when Santana returns, Chisenhall is a nice bat to own if he's still available on your waiver wire. It's unknown how the Tribe will replace Swisher at first, but the most likely scenario is that Ryan Raburn will see the majority of starts there while sharing with Aguilar. Consider adding Raburn in AL-only leagues.
