Swanson is batting leadoff and playing shortstop during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

Swanson has missed the past two weeks of major league camp with back tightness, but it appears that he's progressed well enough to return to live action for the Braves. The 23-year-old suited up in a minor league game Saturday, but did not play any defense. The fact that he's going to see time in the field today is a great sign.
