      Braves' Dansby Swanson: Increases on-field work

      Dansby Swanson (foot) increased his on-field activities Saturday, fielding a round of grounders at shortstop, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.It was reported earlier in the week that Swanson had been doing some hitting and was fielding short hops from his knees. He has taken another step forward, but Swanson is still not especially close to playing in games. The Atlanta Braves just signed Adeiny Hechavarria on Friday to help out at shortstop while Swanson is on the mend.

      Braves' Dansby Swanson: Not ready for fielding work

      Dansby Swanson (foot) has yet to resume fielding drills and remains without a clear timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.The Atlanta Braves initially believed Swanson's right foot injury would result in a minimum-length stay on the injured list, but his absence has lingered far longer than either the shortstop or organization anticipated. Swanson, who missed a 19th consecutive game Tuesday, remains in recovery mode and has yet to resume baseball activities since experiencing a setback while doing some light running earlier this month. Realistically, he probably won't be ready to return from the IL until at least early-to-mid-September while he battles a bone bruise in his heel and inflammation in other areas of the foot.

      Braves' Dansby Swanson: Recovery not going as planned

      Dansby Swanson's recovery from a foot contusion "hasn't really taken the turn for the better like we wanted," said manager Brian Snitker, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.His return is clearly not imminent, and he could be dealing with something slightly worse than a contusion. Swanson should be considered out indefinitely, and in shallower leagues without injured-list spots, it might be time to pivot to a different option. Charlie Culberson and Johan Camargo will continue to share time at shortstop.

      Braves' Dansby Swanson: Return not imminent

      General manager Alex Anthopoulos said Dansby Swanson (foot) isn't close to returning, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.The Atlanta Braves want to make sure Swanson is completely healed before reinstating the shortstop from the injured list. He's apparently still resting after his recovery stalled over the weekend, and the fact that he's not putting a lot of stress on his injured foot suggests a return is far from imminent. Johan Camargo and Charlie Culberson should continue to fill in for Swanson.

      Braves' Dansby Swanson: Could miss another week

The Braves should have a better idea on a timetable for his return later in the week.
