The Braves received one of the top baseball prospects in the country last December when they acquired shortstop Dansby Swanson from the Diamondbacks.

The comparisons have already began with Atlanta great Chipper Jones. Although Jones lauds Swanson immensely, he wasn't a fan of the immediate Matt Wieters Jersey comparisons.


"I think its unfair (to compare),"the former Braves third baseman. Id like to see people let him carve out his own niche, dont put Ken Boyer Jersey any expectations on him. This kid could be anything from a Brandon Crawford shortstop to a Derek Jeter.

"This kid knows how to play the Edmundo Sosa Jersey game. Hes not going to hit 30, 40 homers a year, so dont put those kind of expectations on him. What he is going to do is help you win 95-100 games. Thats the most important thing hes a winner and the Braves are very lucky Genesis Cabrera Jersey to have him."

Swanson is with the Braves' Double-A affiliate, the Mi si sippi Braves. He was invited to play at theAll-Star Futures Game in San Diego on Sunday, but had a rough day at the plate,going 0 for 3 with a strikeout. Swanson is hitting .265/.348/.403 with five home runs and 29 RBIs so farthis season in Double-A.


Jones said the Braves have a gem with Swanson and Steve Carlton Jersey his hardworking mindset.

"Maturitys not going to be an i sue,"Jones said. "When his time comes, youre not going to have to worry about that. Theyre not goinghave to worry about if hes overmatched; hes not going to get himself into a mental funk. Seems like he has his head on Vince Coleman Jersey right."
