Swisher gets cortisone shot in left kneeBy
Nick Swisher received a cortisone shot in his left knee today after an MRI reveal some inflammation. There’s not timetable for his return, but these things usually don’t take very long to kick in. Swish’s knee has been barking since he fouled a ball off it against the Blue Jays back in Toronto, and even though there’s no structural damage or anything broken, it just hasn’t been getting any better. He is not in the lineup for a third straight day.
