Swanson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.
For the first time all season, Swanson will head to the bench in what likely amounts to a pre-planned rest day. Ehire Adrianza will pick up a start at shortstop in place of Swanson, who is slashing .214/.267/.405 through Atlanta's first 11 games of June.

Swanson went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 12-2 loss to the Phillies.
He was the only batter to have any real success against Zach Eflin and the Philly bullpen, accounting for Atlanta's only extra-base hits on the night including Swanson's third homer of the year. The shortstop has been feast or famine lately, collecting multiple hits in five of his last 11 games while going 1-for-21 in the other six combined, but his .293/.356/.488 slash line over that stretch is a definite step up from his early season efforts.
Swanson went 3-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Cubs.

The shortstop finally broke through offensively, recording just his second multi-hit game and raising his early season average from .156 to .204. The lineup in front of Swanson has done him no favors with Ozzie Albies, Freddie Freeman and Marcell Ozuna all struggling considerably to begin 2021. However, those established hitters will presumably break out of their slumps and give Swanson more advantageous opportunities at the plate. The 27-year-old is coming off a career-best 2020 campaign and is once again beginning to flash that offensive prowess from a year ago.
Swanson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.
The shortstop connected on his first homer of the season, and only his second hit through four games, in the second inning off Max Scherzer. Swanson rang up a career-high .809 OPS last year, and while his 0:6 BB:K indicates he doesn't quite have his timing down at the plate yet, Tuesday's blast suggests there's no cause for long-term alarm.
Swanson (calf) will start at shortstop and bat sixth in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker suggested that Swanson was scratched from the lineup for Monday's game Boston as a precaution while he managed a sore right calf, and the 27-year-old's return to the lineup a day later seemingly confirms as much. Snitker is rolling out a starting nine Tuesday that would appear to resemble the lineup for Thursday's Opening Day game against the Phillies, so Swanson looks like he'll begin the season batting in the bottom half of the order in most games.
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said he expects Swanson (calf) to return to the lineup for Tuesday's Grapefruit League finale against the Red Sox, David O'Brien of The Athletic repots.
Swanson was initially scheduled to play in the first half of a two-game set with Boston on Monday, but he was scratched ahead of the contest due to a sore right calf. According to Snitker, Swanson first experienced the injury Sunday and had some lingering tightness Monday following his pregame warmup, so Atlanta decided to play things safe with the shortstop and held him out. Snitker wasn't concerned about the injury, noting that Swanson likely would have played Monday if it had been a regular-season game.
Atlanta scratched Swanson from its lineup for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox due to right calf tightness.
Ehire Adrianza was added to the lineup as a replacement at shortstop for Swanson, whose status will bear close watching leading up to Thursday's season opener against the Phillies. Swanson will have one more chance to re-enter Atlanta's spring lineup, as the team wraps up its spring schedule Tuesday against the Red Sox.
Swanson has gone 7-for-21 (.333) with four doubles and a 3:6 BB:K over 10 Grapefruit League games.
He's still looking for his first spring homer, but otherwise Swanson has had a productive camp. The shortstop posted career highs in SLG (.464) and OPS (.809) last season, and the 27-year-old could be poised for a breakout campaign as he looks to build on that performance.
Swanson lost his arbitration case Tuesday and will earn $6 million this season, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Swanson had filed at $6.7 million. The shortstop produced an above-average batting line last season (hitting .274/.345/.464) for the first time since his 38-game debut back in 2016, adding 10 homers and five steals, but it evidently wasn't enough to win the case.
