Swanson fared well in his 2016 debut, but took two steps back last season, providing a cautionary tale for assumptions about prospects. He hit well below the Mendoza Line over the first two months of the season and did not improve enough in subsequent weeks to avoid a demotion to Triple-A. While Swanson was better following his return, posting a 0.67 BB/K and .360 OBP over his final 49 games, he did not homer in that span and was only successful on one of four stolen-base attempts. Too often we in the industry tend to assume a prospect with Swanson's pedigree will have a straight line to major-league success, but that path is often filled with curves and potholes, and sometimes players simply don't reach the desired destination. Swanson may figure it out, but the new park in Atlanta is less favorable for right-handed power, and Swanson has modest pop to begin with (29.3 hard-hit percentage, 29.4 flyball percentage last season).

  2. Dansby Swanson 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Swanson is who we thought he was. Or at least, he is who everyone other than Dave Stewart and Tony La Russa thought he was. A polished shortstop with no weaknesses and "the good face," Swanson's best tools (hit and field) grade out as plus, while his worst tools (power and speed) grade out as average. That's a recipe for a future All-Star and No. 2 hitter in a quality big league lineup. His numbers at High-A were gaudy enough for him to be promoted to Double-A after just 21 games, and he spent most of the summer posting a 117 wRC+ across 84 games in the Southern League. He skipped Triple-A altogether, making his big league debut in mid-August and finished one at-bat shy of losing his prospect status. The Braves officially chose Swanson over fellow prospect Ozzie Albies as the shortstop of the future, with Albies pegged for second base. Swanson should be an across-the-board contributor in his first full season, with the potential to be a major asset in runs and batting average.
  3. Dansby Swanson 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The No. 1 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Swanson went from leading his Vanderbilt team to the College World Series in June to debuting with short-season Hillsboro of the Northwest League in August. Swanson, who missed time with a concussion after getting hit in the head by a pitch in instructs, was only able to play in 22 games for the Hops, hitting .289 with one home run. He also tallied seven doubles, three triples and a tidy 14:14 K:BB. He should be a good, not great, defensive shortstop who bats for a high average with 15-20 homers, while hitting first or second in a big league lineup during his peak years. Swanson likely won’t help fantasy teams in 2016, but dynasty league owners could see him as early as 2017, as he has the polish and makeup to move quickly. The key piece in the offseason trade that sent Shelby Miller to Arizona, Swanson is unquestionably the Braves' No. 1 prospect.
