News: Swisher will undergo season-ending surgery on both knees Wednesday, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Impact: He will need 8-to-10 weeks to recover, and should be at full strength in time for spring training. This was perhaps Swisher's worst season in the big leagues, hitting just .208 with eight home runs and a career-worst .608 OPS. He'll likely go undrafted in standard leagues next year, and will probably be given just a part-time role going forward.(RotoWire, )
