Braves get encouraging injury news on Dansby Swanson, Austin Riley

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports The Braves have been wrecked by injuries over the last month, losing Nick Markakis, Dansby Swanson, Austin Riley and Ender Inciarte in the blink of an eye. While Markakis is still a few weeks away from returning and Inciarte is expected to miss at least a month with a hamstring strain, the Braves did get encouraging news on Swanson and Riley on Saturday afternoon. Swanson, who was seen working out prior to Friday’s game, took infield practice on Saturday and is “amping up” his activities. The young shortstop has not played since July 23 as he attempts to...

The Atlanta Braves moved to add outfield depth this afternoon and swapped out a bullpen arm to make room.

With Dansby Swanson, Austin Riley, and Nick Markakis likely unavailable for an extended time frame and an inconsistent pitching staff, Snitker has to put a priority on offense production to make the Braves lineup as potent as possible. Thankfully, in terms of shortstop and catcher, Brian McCann and Charlie Culberson have made that decision pretty easy for the skipper. McClutcherson has combined to produce...
