Nick Swisher has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.
After two strong games for Double-A Akron, the Tribe opted to bring Swisher back a little earlier than expected. He will return as the designated hitter for Thursday's game against the Red Sox and will bat seventh in the order.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
