The Cleveland Indians today announced they have activated first baseman Nick Swisher from the 15-day Disabled List and placed designated hitter Jason Giambi on the 15-day Disabled List with left knee inflammation.

Swisher has been on the DL since May 27 with a left knee hyperextension and spent the last two days rehabbing with the AA Akron RubberDucks (2 games, 3-for-6, 2 2B, 2 RBI). On the season thus far Swisher is hitting .211 (39-185) with 11 2B, 3HR & 19RBI in 49 games. Over his last 6 games prior to being shelved he was 7-for-22 (.318) with a double and 3RBI.

Giambi played yesterday, Wednesday, in Kansas City and has hit 2 HR with 5 RBI in 15 games for Cleveland this season (.128, 6-47).
