    • Braves' Dansby Swanson: Goes 1-for-4 with RBI
      By RotoWire Staff

      Swanson went 1-for-4 with an RBI double and a strikeout in Thursday's win over the Mets. The double came when the game was already out of hand, but Swanson still put a solid swing on the ball, which is something he's done more often than not in 2018. Though his numbers will regress when his .434 BABIP returns to the mean, the 24-year-old seems to have made major strides against right-handed pitching, as he owns a .361 average in 61 at-bats against righties, which is light years better than his .224 clip in 393 at-bats from the year before. With the success of Atlanta's offense in mind, ride Swanson for as long as he continues to mash.

    • Swanson went 3-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 14-10 loss to the Cubs. While Ozzie Albies is generating headlines with his incredible power display to begin the season, his double-play partner has been just as impressive in his own way. Swanson's put together a .357/.390/.571 slash line through 13 games with a homer, a steal, seven runs and 10 RBI, and he already has seven multihit games on the year -- a mark he didn't reach until June 9 last year.

    • Swanson went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Nationals. Braves hitters only managed five hits on the night, and the team's double-play duo of Swanson and Ozzie Albies collected four of them. Swanson is off to a hot start, slashing .366/.381/.585 with one homer and eight RBI through 10 games, but his 1:8 BB:K and .438 BABIP are both strong signs he could cool down rapidly.

    • Braves' Dansby Swanson: Drives in three Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Swanson went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, a run scored and three RBI in Friday's 8-3 win over the Rockies. The 24-year-old is off to a good start to 2018, going 10-for-27 through six games, and while Swanson is still looking for his first home run he does have four extra-base hits (three doubles and a triple) and six RBI. The shortstop's fantasy stock took a hit after he managed only a .636 OPS last year, but he seems intent on proving he still deserves to be mentioned among all the other young building blocks in the Braves' organization.

    • Swanson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run in Atlanta's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Phillies on Friday. Touted as a potential breakout candidate ahead of last season, Swanson never got going in 2017, posting a .232/.312/.324 slash line in 488 at-bats and even getting sent to Triple-A Gwinnett for a stretch. Friday's three-hit showing was a nice start for the young shortstop, but Swanson will have to show that he can produce consistently at the big-league level before he can confidently be deployed in fantasy lineups.
