Swihart was a late addition to Saturday's lineup and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in an 8-5 loss to the Giants. Swihart filled in for David Peralta, who aggravated a shoulder injury during Friday night's game. Manager Torey Lovullo said Peralta is day-to-day and hopes to have him available Sunday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Swihart will be the primary fill-in until Peralta is ready for game action.
Swihart will start in left field and bat seventh Saturday against the Giants. Swihart was originally absent from the lineup, but grabs the start in the outfield with David Peralta (shoulder) a late scratch. Swihart is slashing .182/.250/.455 with three home runs and 16 strikeouts in 33 at-bats since joining the Diamondbacks.
Swihart replaced an injured David Peralta (shoulder) in left field and went 1-for-2 with a two-run, inside-the-park home run in Wednesday's 11-1 win over the Pirates. Swihart entered the game in the sixth inning after Peralta sustained an injury to his trapezius muscle. The Diamondbacks are off Thursday, but if the injury lingers, it would open up playing time for rarely-used Swihart.
Swihart started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Braves. The switch-hitting Swihart got the start in right field in place of Adam Jones against right-hander Kevin Gausman. Finding spots for Swihart has been difficult for manager Torey Lovullo. Saturday's start was just his fifth in 18 games since Boston traded him to Arizona.
Swihart started in right field and went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and scored another run in Sunday's 8-7 loss to the Rockies. Swihart, who made his first start since April 25, popped his first long ball in an Arizona uniform. He's just 3-for-17 since joining the Diamondbacks and doesn't have a full-time gig. As such, at-bats come in drips whenever the team needs a pinch hitter, and he's not getting nearly enough swings to develop a hitting groove.
