Dansby Swanson has emerged as one of the hottest free agents on the 2022 market. His name has been all over MLB news lately as pundits and fans speculate on his next destination.

The Atlanta Braves were the only team Dansby Swanson had ever known. Although he was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2015 first overall, he made his Braves debut in 2016.

During his time in Atlanta, Swanson has consistently played the most games for the Braves, including all 162 games in the 2022 season. He was also instrumental in helping the Braves win the World Series in 2021.

After the 2022 season, his contract with the Braves expired and he opted not to re-sign it. This made him a free agent and attracted many teams interested in locking down the workhorse that is Dansby Swanson.

Swanson is engaged to Mallory Pugh, a player for the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. A graduate of the University of Colorado, Pugh became the youngest woman to score when she netted against Colombia at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

Swanson met Pugh through former teammate Jace Peterson. Peterson played on the Braves from 2015 to 2017 and is married to Mallory’s sister. The two began dating in 2017 and announced their engagement shortly after Swanson’s 2021 World Series victory.

With 25 home runs and 96 RBIs, a Gold Glove and his first All-Star appearance in 2022, Swanson has certainly rounded out his resume for free agency. Teams known to be interested in him include the Philadelphia Phillies, Minnesota Twins and Chicago Cubs among the teams known to be interested.

Mallory Pugh and Dansby Swanson are an athletic couple

The pair have accomplished so much in their respective fields of play. As Swanson searches for a contract that suits them best, he will likely keep in mind that he and Pugh are at the peak of their careers. Wherever he goes, it is certain that Mallory will continue to support him, as the couple are due to marry very soon.
