Boston, MA (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians activated first baseman/outfielder Nick Swisher from the paternity list Friday.

Swisher was placed on the list Tuesday, when his wife gave birth to their first child.

Swisher has hit .274 with six home runs and 16 runs batted in over 40 games this season, his first with Tribe after signing a four-year, $56 million deal with the club in the offseason.

To make room for Swisher, the Indians optioned infielder Cord Phelps to Triple-A Columbus. Phelps went 0-for-9 in four games with the Tribe.
