The Atlanta Braves recalled infielder Johan Camargo from their alternate site after sending pitcher Drew Smyly to the 10-day injured list.
Johan Camargo doesn't have a hit in three plate appearances in 2021. In his career, Camargo has a .261 batting average, but only relevant in NL-Only leagues.
Johan Camargo was optioned by the Braves on Saturday, and will begin the year in the minor leagues.
Camargo hit just .194 this spring, so this shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Camargo was competing for a bench spot on the Braves' Opening Day roster, but Atlanta chose to go in a different direction. Camargo has played multiple positions in the big leagues, so if the Braves suffer any injuries during the regular season it's possible Camargo could get called up to fill a utility role. Until then, he holds little to no fantasy value.
Johan Camargo went 1-for-4 with a double and three strikeouts in Friday's spring game against the Twins.
Camargo may well be on the Opening Day roster but he has not earned it. He continues to struggle at the plate and even appears lackadaisical on the basepaths at times.
Johan Camargo went 0-for-3 Wednesday against the Orioles.
Camargo is continuing to struggle at the plate even though he has been doing much better defensively. The Braves have four bench spots open and it has always been the thought that Camargo would be one of those four but his bat is just not producing.
Johan Camargo went 1-for-3 against the Twins Friday, hitting a two-run homer.
Camargo will likely be coming off the bench this year as a fill-in around the diamond or as a pinch-hitter. The trouble is he is not hitting the ball with any consistency but the team has three excellent hitting instructors in camp so maybe we will see some improvement.
