The Arizona Diamondbacks selected Swanson with the first overall selection of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft. Swanson signed with the Diamondbacks, receiving a $6.5 million signing bonus. While batting in a simulated game against Yoan López in July 2015, Swanson was hit in the face with a pitch. The injury delayed his professional debut, which took place on August 12, 2015, with the Hillsboro Hops of the Class A-Short Season Northwest League.
