Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker spoke with ESPN’s Buster Olney to discuss Atlanta’s postseason elimination, Dansby Swanson’s free agency, and more.

“I talked to him [Dansby] after we were eliminated. I wait for Alex to give me updates. All extensions are above me; I just sit and help. They’re very aware of how I feel about that man and how much I want him back, but I understand that this is a business,” Snitker said when asked about Dansby Swanson’s free agency.

Dansby Swanson is entering the offseason as one of the league’s top free agent shortstops. He will receive a qualifying offer this offseason and become eligible for draft pick compensation.
