(CLEVELAND) -- Indians first baseman Nick Swisher was kept out of the starting lineup on Sunday afternoon for the Tribe's series-finale against the Washington Nationals at Progressive Field.

Swisher has been dealing with a sore left shoulder.

Despite manager Terry Francona hinting on Saturday that Swisher would play Sunday afternoon, the struggling slugger was kept out of the lineup.

Swisher said it is an injury that could land him on the disabled list, however on Sunday Francona said that probably will not be the case.

Swisher has been slumping lately hitting just .237 on the season with seven home runs and 24 RBIs.
