by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Swanson has gone 0-for-8 with four strikeouts in a pair of games since returning from the injured list. He'll give way to Adeiny Hechavarria at shortstop for Wednesday's series finale as the Braves look to ease him back into action following nearly a month-long stay on the shelf.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Back from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Swanson wound up missing over a month with a bruised foot. He was in the middle of a career year prior to the injury, hitting .265/.330/.468 with 17 homers in 100 games. His return will push Adeiny Hechavarria to the bench, with outfielder Adam Duvall optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to clear a roster spot.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: May return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) could be activated off the 10-day injured list for Monday's game at Colorado, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Swanson began his rehab assignment with Low-A Rome on Thursday and is 4-for-10 with three walks in three games. The 25-year-old has been sidelined since July 23 and would provide a major boost for the Braves as the regular season reaches its final month. Per Bowman, Swanson traveled to Denver on Sunday but isn't guaranteed to be activated immediately. He has a .265/.330/.468 slash line with 17 homers through 100 games.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Could return during road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) could be activated during this upcoming road trip if his first few rehab games with Low-A Rome go well, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

He begins his rehab assignment as the designated hitter Thursday for Rome. The Braves have a three-game series against the Mets that ends Sunday, then a makeup game in Colorado on Monday followed by a two-game series in Toronto, so Swanson could be an option in weekly leagues next week.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Beginning rehab assignment Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Rome on Thursday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

He has been sidelined since July 23, and while his recovery has not been as smooth as expected, Swanson is on track to rejoin the team when rosters expand in September. He will be deployed initially as the designated hitter for his first rehab game. In the meantime, Adeiny Hechavarria and Charlie Culberson will get starts at shortstop.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Rehab assignment begins this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment sometime this week, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Swanson's recovery has not gone as planned, but it sounds like he should at least make it back sometime in September. He had recently increased his on-field activities.

August 17, 2019 06:12 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Increases on-field work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Braves just signed Adeiny Hechavarria on Friday to help out at shortstop while Swanson is on the mend.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Resumes fielding drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) participated in pregame fielding drills Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Swanson was seen fielding short hops from his knees with coach Ron Washington. Manager Brian Snitker noted that the shortstop is beginning to do some hitting, though he has yet to resume running. Despite the progress, Swanson remains without a return timetable.

August 14, 2019 03:48 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Not ready for fielding work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Alex Anthopoulos said Swanson (foot) isn't close to returning, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The 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.

August 4, 2019 06:12 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Could miss another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) will receive treatment in Atlanta during the next few days, and he's not expected to be reinstated from the injured list before the Braves' weekend series with the Marlins, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Swanson was initially optimistic about his chances of returning from a bruised foot after the 10-day minimum, but it looks as though he could spend another week on the shelf while receiving treatment. The Braves should have a better idea on a timetable for his return later in the week.

August 2, 2019 10:20 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Won't return when first eligible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) won't return from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Saturday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Both Swanson and the Braves had previously expressed optimism that he would be sidelined for the minimum due to a bruised right foot, but that optimism was evidently unfounded. His right heel was still bothering him when he ran Friday, so he's now not expected to return until early next week.

July 29, 2019 05:32 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Goes through pregame workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) went through pregame exercises on the field Monday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Swanson hasn't played since Tuesday due to a bruised foot. He showed no signs of the issue during Monday's workout. Both he and the Braves expect him back when first eligible Saturday.

July 27, 2019 06:32 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Hoping for brief stay on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (foot) is hoping to return from the injured list when first eligible Aug. 3, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Swanson is currently on the injured list with a right foot contusion, but it doesn't sound like his stay on the shelf will be an extended one. As of now, the Braves don't anticipate Swanson needing more than the minimum 10 days to recover.

July 27, 2019 01:04 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right foot contusion.

The injury was previously reported to be heel soreness, but the club is labeling it as a bruised foot. It sounds like a situation where Swanson just needs some time to rest and recover. Johan Camargo should slot in as the everyday shortstop in the short term.

July 26, 2019 04:04 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Still out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (heel) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

Swanson was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to heel soreness and will require at least one more day to rest up. Johan Camargo will start at shortstop at bat seventh Friday in his absence.

July 24, 2019 04:48 PM
Braves' Dansby Swanson: Scratched with heel issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals due to a heel issue, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Swanson injured his heel during Tuesday's contest but did not leave the game. The injury is considered minor, and the Braves have a day off Thursday, so there's a good chance he's back in action Friday in Philadelphia.
