The Braves have activated Dansby Swanson from the Injured List ahead of Monday’s makeup game against the Rockies. In a corresponding move, Adam Duvall has been optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Swanson has been out since July 23 with a bone bruise to his right foot. The Braves signed Adeiny Hechavarria to play shortstop while Swanson was out. Hechavarria has filled in admirably, but nonetheless Swanson’s return is a big boost for the Braves going forward.

Duvall provided a jolt to the Braves’ offense when he was first promoted in July. However, during the month of August, Duvall has hit .148/.224/.279 with a measly 29 wRC+.

The Braves also announced that Austin Riley has been transferred to Triple-A while rehabbing from a knee injury. If all goes well for Riley in Gwinnett, he should be back on the Braves’ roster very soon.
