Indians Place Murphy, Swisher On 15-Day D-L
(NEW YORK) -- Cleveland Indians first baseman Nick Swisher and outfielder David Murphy were placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday. The club recalled outfielders Tyler Holt and Zach Walters from Triple-A Columbus.
Murphy tweaked his oblique on a swing during Saturday’s 3-0 victory over the New York Yankees. In 109 games this season, he's hitting .262 with seven home runs and 55 RBIs.
Swisher has been troubled by an ailing right knee. He is batting .208 with eight homers and 42 RBIs.
