Blue Jays: Pitcher Swanson’s son run over

Toronto Blue Jays reliever Erik Swanson has left the team’s facilities to be with his family after his 4-year-old son, Toby, was hit by a car on Sunday. Manager John Schneider confirmed that Toby was taken by air ambulance to the hospital and is currently recovering. Schneider praised Clearwater emergency services for their quick response and care.

Due to the family emergency, Erik Swanson will be away from the team for an unspecified amount of time. Schneider emphasized that family comes first and expressed the team’s love, support, and prayers for the Swanson family during this difficult time.

Swanson, who is entering his second season with the Blue Jays and his sixth year in the Major Leagues, had a successful 2023 season with a 4-2 record, 4 saves, and a 2.97 ERA in 69 appearances. Known for his towering height at 6-foot-10, Swanson has accumulated an 8-14 record with 10 saves and a 3.78 ERA in 195 career games.

The pitcher holds a special bond with his son Toby, as he caught Toby’s first ball during a ceremony last September. The Blue Jays organization and fans are sending their thoughts and well-wishes to the Swanson family during this challenging time.
