Cleveland Indians first baseman Nick Swisher had surgery on both of his knees Wednesday and is done for the 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.
