Braves' Dansby Swanson: Reaches base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored Sunday in the Braves' 10-3 win over the Nationals.

Swanson has dropped from the leadoff spot to No. 2 in the batting order after Ronald Acuna returned to action Friday following a three-game absence due to a hamstring issue, but both players enjoyed productive weekends as the Braves and Nationals split their four-game set. The shortstop has already churned out three two-hit games in September and is now sitting on a .294/.347/.475 slash line heading into Monday's series opener versus the Marlins.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Swats sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 2-for-4 with a home run and a three RBI in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

He was less impressive in the nightcap, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored, but Swanson's two-run shot in the third inning of the opener proved to be the game-winning hit in a 7-1 victory. On the season, the shortstop is slashing .294/.337/.484 with six homers, four steals, 24 RBI and 34 runs in 38 games.

Swanson's second-inning walk came with the bases-loaded to score Austin Riley, and Swanson later scored on a Marcell Ozuna single. In the ninth, Swanson added a homer to give the Braves an insurance run. The shortstop is slashing a strong .303/.343/.492 with five homers, 20 RBI, 29 runs scored and four stolen bases through 33 games this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 3-for-5 with a run scored and a double in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Yankees.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Flashing wheels early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 1-for-3 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Mets.

The shortstop's career high for steals in a season is only 10, but Swanson has already swiped three bags through nine games in 2020, and all three steals have come in the last four contests. Seeing a steady diet of Mets pitchers and catchers has certainly helped, as Atlanta's NL East rivals have been notoriously poor at shutting down the opposition's running game in recent years, but Swanson has the athleticism to make an impact in that category if he stays aggressive on the basepaths. He's been just as hot at the plate as well, hitting .382 (13-for-34) with two homers, nine runs and 11 RBI.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Swipes first bag Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in a win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Swanson knocked in a run with a ground-rule double in the sixth inning and subsequently came around to score on an infield single by Ozzie Albies. He also swiped a bag in the seventh frame after reaching base on a throwing error. The 26-year-old has gotten off to a hot start this season, slashing .391/.391/.739 through six games.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Rips second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 14-5 loss to the Rays.

After going yard Sunday, the shortstop stayed in a groove with his power stroke. Swanson has gone 6-for-15 through four games with two homers and seven RBI to begin 2020, but after striking out twice Monday he also carries a shaky 0:6 BB:K, a sign he could cool down in a hurry.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Fills box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson went 3-for-5 with a team-high five RBI, a homer and two runs scored in Sunday's 14-1 drubbing of the Mets.

Swanson finished the game a triple short of the cycle. He provided an RBI single in the first inning and knocked in another pair in the third as part of a five-run rally. The shortstop's biggest hit of the night was a fourth-inning two-run home run. He's 5-for-12 (.417) with six RBI and three runs scored through three games this season.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Blasts homer in intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson took Mike Foltynewicz deep for an opposite-field, three-run home run in Wednesday's intrasquad game, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Swanson's blast proved to be the decisive hit of the contest before the game was halted in the third inning due to rain. The 26-year-old is locked in as the Braves' everyday shortstop for the 60-game season, and now that he's healthy again, he could be a sneaky late-round value in fantasy drafts. Swanson posted an .822 OPS to go with 17 home runs and seven stolen bases in the first half of the 2019 campaign, but he struggled to regain his form at the plate upon returning from a foot injury that cost him a good portion of the second half. He slashed just .204/.315/.254 and struck out in 29.7 percent of his plate appearances after the All-Star break.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Locked into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was hitting 7-for-27 (.259) with a double and a 2:6 BB:K when spring training was suspended.

The spring numbers weren't impressive, but Swanson had nothing to prove in camp. The 26-year-old hit the ball a little harder in 2019 and saw a slight uptick in his power numbers as a result, but as yet his long-anticipated breakout hasn't occurred. Swanson is locked into the starting shortstop role in a loaded Atlanta lineup.
