Camargo was optioned to the alternate site Thursday.
Camargo used to have a locked-down place on Atlanta's bench, but he's fallen down the hierarchy in recent seasons. He didn't make the team's Opening Day roster but has already spent two brief stints with the team, going 0-for-11 in limited action. He'll likely keep bouncing on and off the roster throughout the year.
Camargo was recalled by Atlanta on Friday.
Camargo takes the roster spot that had belonged to reliever Tucker Davidson, who was optioned to the alternate site Thursday. Camargo spent a brief period on the roster earlier in the season, striking out twice and walking once in his three trips to the plate. He could spend much of the season bouncing on and off the fringe of Atlanta's roster unless injuries open up a permanent role.
Camargo was optioned to the alternate site Friday.
Ehire Adrianza was reinstated from the restricted list, so Camargo's services as a bench infielder were no longer needed. He will provide depth throughout the campaign.
Camargo was recalled ahead of Saturday's game against the Phillies.
Ehire Adrianza was placed on the injured list as he goes through COVID-19 protocols, so Camargo will serve as the team's utility infielder in the meantime.
Camargo was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site Saturday, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports.
It's something of a surprise Camargo didn't make the Opening Day roster, but he was outplayed this spring by Ehire Adrianza and the team elected to go with an extra arm in the bullpen to open the season rather than a five-man bench. Camargo, who has seen action at all four infield spots and the outfield corners over the last two years, could be the first player called back up once Atlanta has a greater need for position depth.
Camargo signed a one-year, $1.36 million contract with Atlanta on Wednesday.
Camargo was a strong non-tender candidate during the offseason, but he'll now avoid arbitration with his new contract. The utility man posted a career-worst .200/.244/.367 slash line during the abbreviated 2020 season while striking out at a 27.6 percent clip.
Camargo was added to Atlanta's NLCS roster Tuesday.
Camargo joins the team in place of Adam Duvall, who suffered an oblique injury in Game 1 on Monday. It's possible Camargo sees some time in Duvall's spot in left field, though the Braves have a number of other outfield options they can turn to. It's also possible Pablo Sandoval enters the lineup as a designated hitter, pushing Marcell Ozuna out to left. Camargo is still searching for his first career postseason hit after going hitless in four games back in 2018. He's coming off a season in which he hit just .200/.244/.367 in 35 games.
The Braves recalled Camargo from their alternate training site Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of their wild-card series with the Reds.
Atlanta will go with Camargo, Charlie Culberson and Pablo Sandoval as their main reserve options in the infield during the postseason. Camargo hit .200 with four home runs and nine RBI across 127 plate appearances during the regular season.
Camargo was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site Wednesday.
Adeiny Hechavarria had already started to cut into Camargo's playing time, so with Ozzie Albies (wrist) getting activated, this was a natural corresponding move. He has a .200/.244/.367 slash line on the season.
Camargo is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins.
He'll sit for the second straight game and the third time in five contests in favor of Adeiny Hechavarria, who will man second base and bat eighth Monday. Though Camargo offers more offensive upside than Hechavarria, he hasn't hit at his usual level thus far in 2020, slashing .200/.244/.367 across 127 plate appearances. Braves manager Brian Snitker could favor more of a timeshare at the keystone until Ozzie Albies (wrist) is cleared to return from the injured list.
Camargo is not starting Sunday against the Nationals.
Camargo has swung the bat well of late, collecting eight hits in his last 27 at-bats. However, he'll get a day off Sunday, with Adeiny Hechavarria taking his place at second base and batting ninth.
Camargo is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals.
Camargo started the past 21 games, but he'll head to the bench for Friday's matinee after posting a .633 OPS during that stretch. Adeiny Hechavarria will take over at the keystone for Atlanta.
Camargo went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in an 11-2 win over the Phillies on Friday.
Camargo had an RBI double to deep center field which capped off a four-run third inning and then got the fun started again in the fifth with a two-run double that ignited a seven-run inning. His two RBI on the day were his first since Aug. 12 as he continues to struggle at the plate while filling in for the injured Ozzie Albies (wrist) at second base.
Camargo went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Yankees.
Camargo went deep off Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka in the second inning, but the lead would be short-lived for Atlanta. Camargo has hit safely in three straight games, going 4-for-12 with two homers, four RBI and three runs scored in that span. He's hitting .212/.268/.442 with three homers, six RBI and eight runs scored in 17 games overall.
Camargo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Phillies.
Getting the start at second base and hitting ninth, Camargo took Nick Pivetta deep for his second homer of the year as Atlanta mounted a late comeback attempt that fell well short -- they scored seven runs in the ninth, and still lost 13-8. Camargo has seen consistent playing time so far this season, mostly splitting time at third base with Austin Riley. Wherever he plays, he'll need to get going with the bat to have fantasy value in most formats -- Camargo is slashing only .182/.250/.364 with three RBI and a 3:15 BB:K through 15 games.
Camargo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win against the Mets.
Camargo hasn't been very productive at the plate over the start of the season, but he provided an insurance run in the fourth inning Sunday with his first home run of the campaign. The 26-year-old has a .642 OPS with two extra-base hits and one RBI over his first eight games this year.
Camargo (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the Mets.
Camargo ended up only missing one game as he recovered from a mild hamstring strain. The 26-year-old played all 10 innings at third base and batted seventh in the contest. He scored on a William Contreras double in the 10th inning. Camargo's best path to at-bats will be at third base, but he has the defensive capabilities to serve in a utility role if he can't produce at the dish.
Camargo's hamstring injury didn't seem like a problem during batting practice Wednesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Camargo suffered a mild hamstring strain during an intrasquad game over the weekend. The timing could send him to the injured list for a brief period, though it appears as if he's close to game action. With active rosters expanded to 30 players, it's possible Camargo could avoid the injured list if he's expected to be ready within a few days of Opening Day.
Camargo suffered a mild hamstring injury during Saturday's intrasquad game, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, but manager Brian Snitker wouldn't rule out a trip to the injured list given the timing of the injury. Camargo will take things easy for a couple days and attempt to be ready for Friday's season opener against the Mets.
Camargo would likely have been on Atlanta's Opening Day roster had the regular season begun as scheduled, even if he wasn't the starting third baseman, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The club headed into the spring with Camargo battling Austin Riley for the starting job at the hot corner, and the loser was expected to head down to Triple-A Gwinnett to get consistent playing time. During an interview Friday, however, GM Alex Anthopoulos suggested that both had been playing so well in camp the battle could have continued into the regular season. "Camargo, Riley were playing unbelievably well," Anthopoulos told Fox Sports broadcaster Chip Carey. "We hadn't made a decision yet of who we were going to carry. We had started to talk about - the fact that the minor-league season was scheduled to start on April 9 and we were starting March 26 - we started to talk about carrying both. There's no reason to leave them down in Florida. They'd both been playing well enough to make the team." In the long run, Riley has the better prospect pedigree and is the favorite to claim the job, but if his strikeout problems persist in 2020, Camargo would get a chance to prove he's a starting-caliber player in the majors.
