Some reports swirled linking the Braves to various free agent third basemen, but with the market dwindling and spring training in progress, it seems like Camargo is going to be the man at the hot corner. The 24-year-old impressed in his first major-league stint, slashing .299/.331/.452 in 241 at-bats last season. He's also considered the team's best defensive infielder since Andrelton Simmons, so it's certainly reasonable for him to maintain his perch atop the third base depth chart. Rio Ruiz and Austin Riley (to an extent) are also in the mix for the starting gig, but Camargo appears to have the upper hand at this point.
With Austin Riley looking like the long-term solution at third base for the Braves, the team is seeking a steady option to hold down the job until Riley is ready (likely in 2019). As a result, Camargo is the leading internal candidate to open the season with the job, but the Braves may find an affordable solution in free agency if the market is soft for a player such as Todd Frazier since Mike Moustakas is also available this winter. Additionally, the list of teams looking for help at third base is reasonably short. Eventually, Camargo will likely end up handling a utility role for the Braves.
Camargo is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.
Camargo will make his way to the bench for the final game of the regular season. Rio Ruiz will draw the start at third base in his stead, batting sixth.
Camargo is not in the lineup against the Marlins on Friday.
Camargo will spend a third straight game out of the starting nine as Rio Ruiz gets the nod at third base for Friday's affair. Over the club's last 10 games, Camargo is hitting .217/.250/.261 with three RBI in 23 at-bats.
Camargo is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins.
While he's hit an impressive .315/.339/.444 in 54 at-bats this month, Camargo will open on the bench for a second straight contest. In his place, Adonis Garcia will take over at the hot corner, batting sixth. The rookie has shown enough in his first big-league campaign to compete for the starting third baseman job in 2018, assuming the Braves don't look outside the organization for an upgrade.
