Murphy has been feeling soreness in his side for close to a week and the Indians finally decided to give him an extended period of rest. This is the second knee-related disabled list stint for Swisher, who also has a minor right wrist injury. Both players have had disappointing seasons offensively for the 58-59 Tribe.

Cleveland recalled Tyler Holt and Zach Walters from Triple-A to fill the vacant 25-man roster spots.
