Braves SS Swanson (hand) exits vs. Mets


Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson was removed from Atlanta’s Tuesday night game against the New York Mets as a precaution due to left hand soreness.

Swanson was pulled to start the bottom of the second inning. He lined out to center in his first at-bat in the top of the inning.

Charlie Culberson replaced Swanson in the field.

Swanson missed time on the disabled list in May with left wrist inflammation. The 24-year-old is hitting .238 with 14 home runs, 59 RBIs and 10 stolen bases in 136 games.

The Braves clinched the National League East and a playoff berth on Saturday.
