Albies might get his running mate back soon

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Dansby Swanson is nearing recovery on his wrist, per Mark Bowman.

Swanson was placed on the 10-day disabled list on May 4th with left wrist inflammation. That 10 day restriction ended Monday and he may be activated this weekend. Swanson was slashing .171/.237/.171 with 15 wRC+ in the 9 games leading up to the injury. That is in contrast to the .342/.381/.544 line with 150 wRC+ up until then in 2018.

The return of Swanson could possibly leave Johan Camargo without a position now that Jose Bautista is the current resident at third base. Or maybe not, as Swanson could possibly rehab in Gwinnett. We will be watching the situation and will update accordingly.
