Swanson has been dealing with wrist issues for a couple of weeks.

"It's a little extra sore. It's just precautionary stuff. I already talked to Snit. I felt it was best, with the season being so long, to be smart about things," Swanson said. "I've been playing a lot lately. I don't know if 'overuse' would be the right word. It's something we didn't want to push through."
