Dansby Swanson
26-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Atlanta Braves
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Curiously, Swanson's usually reliable defense took a step back last season. Meanwhile, his offense improved. Swanson set new personal bests with 17 homers, 77 runs and 65 RBI while tying 2018's career-high 10 swipes. Even so, Swanson's production remained below average at his position. His plate skills were like the previous season, but he took a different path to get there. Swanson was more aggressive in the zone while being more selective. His strikeout and walk rates didn't change but his hard-hit rate increased eight points, buoyed by an uptick of three mph in average exit velocity. Swanson hit second in over half his games after mostly occupying the eight hole previously. There's no guarantee he remains there this season, but if he does the extra counting stats will help. Shortstop is loaded but with the improved approach, Swanson is mixed-league worthy, albeit it with a low ceiling. Read Past Outlooks
