Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson left Wednesday’s game in the sixth inning due to a sore left wrist. The team added that the move was for precautionary reasons.

Swanson was 0-for-2 on Wednesday and exited after striking out in the fifth inning. He came into the game hitting .292/.339/.434 with 11 extra-base hits in 29 games this season.
Johan Camargo replaced Swanson at shortstop and hit his second home run of the season in the eighth to extend Atlanta’s lead to 6-0.
The Braves will wrap up a 10-game road trip with an afternoon game on Thursday. Wouldn’t be surprising to see Swanson get the day off.
