Camargo will get a game in the outfield next week, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. There were suggestions that Camargo would fill a "Marwin Gonzalez-type role" earlier in the offseason, and it appears that the Braves are moving forward with that plan. Camargo should be the primary backup at each infield position and could even spend more time in the outfield than Adam Duvall, should he prove to be able to track flyballs well. The 25-year-old has a grand total of one inning in the outfield under his belt as a major leaguer, but the Braves will want to get his bat in the lineup on a regular basis, as he owns a .281/.343/.455 slash line in 216 games. If he's starting more often than not, he's certainly deep-league relevant, and he'll have the potential for more whenever another Atlanta hitter gets injured.
The Braves are planning to use Camargo in a "Marwin Gonzalez-type role" in 2019, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Josh Donaldson was brought in on a one-year deal, but it sounds like Camargo will continue to play regularly between the infield and outfield, though not quite every day. Camargo performed well above replacement level last season, hitting 19 home runs and posting a 115 wRC+ over 524 plate appearances. He's still very much in the mix for deep mixed leagues.
Camargo is not starting Sunday against Philadelphia. The Braves are resting five starters after clinching a playoff berth Saturday. Rio Ruiz will get the start at third base.
Camargo (groin) is back in the lineup Monday against St. Louis. Camargo had missed four straight games with groin soreness. He's batting fifth and playing third base Monday, sending Charlie Culberson back to the bench.
Camargo (groin) should be penciled into the starting lineup Monday against the Cardinals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Camargo has been held off the diamond for the past four games due to a left groin issue, but he should be good to go for the start of Atlanta's three-game showdown with St. Louis. The 24-year-old owns a .274/.354/.468 slash line through 419 at-bats (122 games) this season.
