Fantasy Forward: Batting order change benefiting Dansby Swanson

Dansby Swanson has now hit safely in eight consecutive games, including Tuesday's home run, and he's batting .250 with a .354 on-base percentage since his move to the bottom of the Braves' order. Most importantly, he's pressing less - chasing non-strikes five percent less often than he did batting second - giving us hope this will vault him back into the mixed-middle-infielder value tier fantasy-wise. The walks should give him a fighting chance of recapturing the No. 2 spot in the order at some point later this year.
