Braves' Dansby Swanson: Relegated to part-time role

Manager Brian Snitker said that Swanson will play a part-time role at shortstop for the Braves moving forward, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Swanson is hitting just .220 on the season, and although he seemed to figure things out during the month of June, things have fallen apart lately. He has more strikeouts (23) than hits (22) in the past 30 games, including just five extra-base hits in that span. Now that Sean Rodriguez and Danny Santana are back from the disabled list, Snitker will utilize his depth by spreading starts among his many options, which also include the hot-hitting Johan Camargo. Snitker commented that he thinks it's better for Swanson to spend time in the big leagues rather than the minors, but a trip to Gwinnett certainly isn't out of the question if things continue to go south.
