Swanson is out of the lineup Friday due to quadriceps soreness and is likely to sit Saturday as well, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. The goal seems to be to get Swanson rested up to play in Sunday's first-half finale. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Swanson was dealing with some discomfort in his quad Thursday when he homered twice as part of a three-hit effort -- a good sign that it's nothing too serious. Johan Camargo is filling in at shortstop.
Swanson is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins. Swanson started the last five games and went 11-for-23 with four doubles, two home runs, five runs scored and six RBI, but he'll nonetheless receive the day off Friday. Johan Camargo will start at shortstop and bat eighth in his stead.
Swanson went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and five RBI in a win against the Phillies on Thursday. After Atlanta fell behind by four runs in the top of the first inning, Swanson kicked off its comeback with a solo shot in the bottom of the frame. He followed with a run-scoring double in the second and capped the scoring with a three-run blast in the eighth. The multi-homer game was Swanson's second of the season and the five RBI established a career high. In what has been his best season as a pro, Swanson is now slashing .274/.334/.500 with 17 homers and 57 RBI in 336 at-bats.
