  Swanson, Culberson win Players Weekend with jersey swap ​Who's who? We've never known before, and we certainly won't start the process of learning now. In the interest of making things completely unfair, ​Dansby Swanson and Charlie Culberson have ​no time for nicknames. Instead, they'd simply rather snag each other's jerseys for fun.

After the game , Braves manager Brian Snitker said Swanson was recovering and that it wasn't expected to be a serious injury. He was thankful Porcello threw a slider instead of a high-90s fastball. "He passed all the tests, which is good," Snitker said, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
