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.
Camargo will most likely be sent back to Triple-A Gwinnett if he doesn't win the starting third base job this spring, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
While Camargo and Austin Riley, his competition for the starting spot, each have experience playing other positions, the organization would rather see both get consistent playing time rather than hurting their development in a bench role. "I don't know that realistically, can you get both guys (ample playing time)? No, I don't know that you can do (them) justice. If you're not playing every day, you're not going to do justice with things. You talk about it, it sounds good, but in reality, it's not that easy to do," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Sunday. Camargo is currently considered the favorite to win the big-league job.
Camargo, who hit a home run off Yankees prospect Deivi Garcia in Friday's Grapefruit League game, is the favorite in the third-base job battle with Austin Riley, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
This sounds like an educated guess from Bowman. We already know Camargo will make the 26-man roster, getting some occassional starts at the hot corner while serving as the backup at second base and shortstop, but it sounds like he could also just win the third base job outright. Riley has produced a couple long line drives while going 2-for-10 with just one strikeout thus far and is the much more appealing fantasy option due to his big power potential, but Camargo could become useful in deep leagues if he enters the season as close to an everyday player.
Camargo will be in the lineup on an every-other-day basis in the early parts of spring training, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Camargo is competing with Austin Riley for the starting job at the hot corner in Atlanta, so the team will give long looks to both players early on in the exhibition season. After a down year in 2019, Camargo has reportedly focused on his conditioning and fitness with an eye towards bouncing back in 2020.
Camargo, who committed to improving his conditioning and fitness this offseason, will compete in camp with Austin Riley for the starting job at third base, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old lost nearly 20 pounds this winter while working out with a performance coach in Tampa rather than staying home in Panama. Camargo saw his numbers drop across the board last year and could be a better fit as a utility player, but if Riley hasn't yet figured out big-league pitching, Camargo could get a chance to rediscover the form that saw him slug 19 homers with an .806 OPS through 134 games in 2018.
Camargo (shin) agreed to a one-year, $1.7 million deal with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
This is the 26-year-old utility player's first year as an arbitration-eligible player. His season ended with a fractured right shin in September, but he is expected to be ready for spring training.
Camargo (lower leg) is doubtful for the NLDS, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Camargo has been sidelined since Sept. 11 with a fractured right shin. The utility man hasn't progressed as quickly as he hoped and still can't put full weight on his leg, making it unlikely that he'll be ready to return in time for the first round of the playoffs, which begins next week.
Camargo was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a fractured right shin.
The team downplayed the injury after Camargo exited Wednesday's contest when he fouled a ball off himself, but he now looks to be facing an extended absence. The Braves expect him back in around three weeks but have yet to rule him out for the rest of the season, per Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, though it's difficult to imagine he'll have enough time to get back up to speed to make the postseason roster for the first round.
Camargo (lower leg) was sporting crutches after Wednesday's game but is only expected to be sidelined a couple days, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Camargo suffered a right shin bruise Wednesday after fouling a ball off himself, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury. Adeiny Hechavarria and Charlie Culberson should serve as the primary utility players for the Braves while he's sidelined.
Camargo exited Wednesday's game at Philadelphia with a right shin contusion.
The 25-year-old fouled a ball off his right shin during the fourth inning and was unable to put any weight on the leg when he was helped off the field. Camargo should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
Camargo was removed from Wednesday's game against the Phillies after fouling a ball off his right knee area, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
Camargo appeared to be in significant pain and wasn't able to put any weight on his right light as he was helped off the field. The 25-year-old was starting his second straight game after going 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and two runs scored Tuesday.
Camargo went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Phillies.
Camargo led off the second inning with a double, but was ultimately stranded at third base. He took matters into his own hands to lead off the eighth inning with a solo home run, his seventh homer of the season. Tuesday marked Camargo's first start since Aug. 15, and his .234/.280/.385 line in 97 games is nothing noteworthy.
Camargo was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Carmargo struggled coming out of the All-Star break with a .191/.267/.294 slash line in 23 games before being demoted in mid-August. The 25-year-old figures to step back into a utility role, though he'll likely be relied upon less than he was earlier in the season.
Camargo was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Camargo heads to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room on the 25-man roster for Adeiny Hechavarria, who joined the organization Friday. In 89 games with the Braves this season, Camargo carries a slash line of .222/.268/.344 with five home runs.
Camargo is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.
Camargo will sit for the third consecutive game, giving way to Charlie Culberson, who will start at shortstop and bat eighth. Camargo has regularly appeared in the starting lineup in the absence of Dansby Swanson (foot), but he has just three hits -- none for extra bases -- and four walks in his last 25 plate appearances.
Camargo is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Marlins.
Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop and hit eighth against right-hander Elieser Hernandez. Camargo will rest for the second time in three days after making 12 consecutive starts. The 25-year-old switch-hitter is just 2-for-17 in his last five starts and is slashing .230/.274/.331 against righties.
Camargo isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.
Camargo is in line for an off day after starting the first five contests of August. He went just 1-for-16 with three walks over that stretch. Charlie Culberson gets the nod at shortstop and is set to bat eighth in Camargo's stead.
Camargo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.
The 25-year-old has started four straight games with Dansby Swanson (foot) sidelined, but Sunday's blast has been Camargo's only hit during that stretch. He's now slashing a tepid .226/.255/.362 on the season with four homers and 23 RBI in 184 plate appearances, and should return to a bench role once Swanson is healthy.
Camargo will start at shortstop and bat eighth Sunday against the Phillies.
The Braves have settled on Camargo as the primary replacement at shortstop while Dansby Swanson (foot) is stuck on the injured list. With zero hits in 13 at-bats while starting the past three contests, Camargo has yet to take advantage of the opportunity afforded him. For his part, Swanson said he expects to be sidelined for close to the minimum 10 days, leaving Camargo with little time to get his bat going.
Camargo got the start at shortstop and hit seventh during Wednesday's loss to the Royals, going 0-for-3.
The 25-year-old utility player has gotten only two starts in 12 games since the All-Star break, and his .639 OPS on the year isn't making a strong case for a larger role. Camargo would likely need an injury somewhere on the Atlanta infield to be worth fantasy consideration even in deeper formats.
