Swanson went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer and two walks in Friday's win over the Nationals.

The highly-touted shortstop has struggled on the season to the tune of a .201/.280/.309 slash line, but he's seemingly heating up. He now has hits in 10 of his last 11 games and is seven for his last 18 at the plate, including two home runs and five RBI. His progress is definitely worth monitoring, as Swanson looks to be trending in the right direction for the Braves.
