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.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Avoids arbitration with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson agreed to a one-year, $3.15 million contract with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Swanson had a solid 2019 with a .251/.325/.422 slash line with 17 home runs, 10 stolen bases and 65 RBI in 127 games, and he gets just over $3 million in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The 25-year-old is primed for another season as Atlanta's starting shortstop in 2020.

Braves' Dansby Swanson: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.

He is hitting just .156 with zero home runs and one steal in 19 games since coming off the injured list. Adeiny Hechavarria is starting at shortstop and hitting fifth.

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

Swanson is not in the lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

Swanson has hit just .125/.243/.156 in nine games since returning from a foot contusion. Adeiny Hechavarria will take over at shortstop for Saturday's contest.

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.
