Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson went 2-for-3 with a walk, solo homer and two runs scored in Wednesday’s 7-3 win over Philadelphia.
Spin: Each ball Swanson put in play was hit hard. Statcast measured his fifth-inning single at 100.9 mph, while his seventh-inning homer clocked in at 104.8 mph. Swanson owns a .440 BABIP so far this season, which is certainly going to regress going forward. He owns a 22 percent hard-hit rate, compared to 29.3 percent a season ago, so Swanson’s uptick in results can be attributed mostly to good luck. (více...)
