Braves SS Swanson has wrist surgery
Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson underwent a surgical procedure on his left wrist earlier this week, the team announced Wednesday.
Swanson underwent the procedure on Monday to remove a "loose body" in the wrist.
Swanson is slated to resume all baseball activities sometime next month. He is expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training.
The 24-year-old wasn't on the Braves' roster for the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers because of a partially torn ligament in his left hand. That injury created additional soreness between Swanson's index finger and wrist.
Swanson also missed two weeks in May because of fatigue in the left wrist.
Swanson batted .238 with 14 homers and 59 RBIs in 136 games last season, his second full campaign in the majors.
