Nick Swisher will undergo surgery on both of his knees on Wednesday, the Cleveland Indians have announced.
Swisher, 33, will miss the remainder of the 2014 season. Following surgery, the club estimates the switch-hitter will need 8-to-10 weeks of recovery time.
The first baseman and DH hit .208 with eight homers and 42 RBI in 97 games for Cleveland this season.
Beyond 2014, the club still owes Swisher $30 million over the next two seasons (2015-2016).
