Braves send Dansby Swanson back to Triple-A Gwinnett

The Braves have decided to send shortstop Dansby Swanson back to Triple-A Gwinnett Braves after his lackluster start to the season.

Just a few weeks ago, the Braves announced Swanson wouldn’t play shortstop full time as Johan Camargo has emerged as a strong infielder.

Only time and improvement in Triple-A will tell if Swanson returns to the Braves this season.

This is probably lower than most have Leaf at this stage. He’s a good offensive player who continues to post terrific numbers. However, two aspects of his game scare scouts.

First, his production against elite teams outside of the Kentucky game has not been terrific. According to KenPom, in six games against Tier A opponents, Leaf’s true-shooting percentage falls by nine points, his assist rate gets cut in half, his turnover rate rises and his offensive rating falls from 130.4 to 116.1. Second, Leaf is a significant part of UCLA’s defensive issues, and probably the worst defender currently rated as a first-round pick.

He’s been productive enough to get to the top-30 level, but he needs to sustain that in conference play to stick in that first-round range.

Hart falls here as he’s settled back in as a good jump shooter as opposed to a great one. Still, the intangibles are terrific. He’s a good defensive player, and he’s among the favorites for Cheap Jerseys From China Free Shipping national player of the year in college hoops. That’s a good package of skills and accolades to bring to the Cheap Jerseys Elite table. He’ll be in consideration in the second half of the first round.
