Indians' Nick Swisher has surgery on both knees, done for season
Before being placed on the disabled list on Aug. 10, Swisher was hitting .208 with eight home runs and 42 RBI.
The 33-year-old signed a four-year, $56 million contract with the Indians before last season.
Swisher, who has "chronic medial knee discomfort as a result of medial meniscus wear and tear" will need 8-10 weeks to recover, but is expected to make a full recovery.
