Braves' Dansby Swanson: Unlikely to discuss extension
Swanson isn't interested in discussing a contract extension during the season, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The shortstop will be a free agent next offseason, but Swanson suggested Friday he didn't want the distraction of a contract negotiation. "I haven't even thought about it," he said. "But my off-the-cusp answer would be no. There's no point in having extra distractions. This game's hard enough as it is. You want to put all your energy into the game and your teammates. And that's the real reason why you do play, is for your teammates and to win. So if things are taking away from that focus, then it's not worth it." Swanson posted career-best power numbers last season, but paired his 27 homers and 88 RBI with a .248/.311/.449 slash line. Assuming Atlanta doesn't lock him up before Opening Day, the 28-year-old could be headed for a big payday if he keeps his power gains and continues to play strong defense in 2022.... See More ...
