Braves’ Dansby Swanson pulled with sore left wrist
Swanson felt discomfort during the second of his two strikeouts Wednesday night and was replaced by Johan Camargo in the field for the sixth inning in a 7-0 win against the Mets.
Braves manager Brian Snitker removed Swanson as a precaution.
”That last at-bat he had, I could just tell something wasn’t right with the swing,” Snitker said. ”Something that got a little sore and I just wanted to get him out of there.”
Snitker said Swanson will be re-evaluated after sitting out Thursday.
Swanson, the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, is having a bounce-back season after a disappointing 2017. He is hitting .289 with two homers and 13 RBIs.
