Johan Camargo headed to disabled list with knee bone bruise

Not ideal but good news in the grand scheme.

When Johan Camargo went down in a heap prior to Tuesday evening’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, there was quite a bit of worry that the Atlanta Braves infielder could miss extended time. After the contest, though, the Braves received some good news in that Camargo does not have ligament damage in his right knee.

It should be noted that the Braves and Camargo did not get off scot-free, as he suffered a bone bruise that will send him to the disabled list.

Fortunately, it appears Camargo remains upbeat on the heels of good news.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a renaissance season that has made a clear impact on the Braves brass from a decision-making perspective. The likelihood is that Dansby Swanson will be recalled in his stead but, in the grand scheme, this is a (very) positive health report for Johan Camargo and that is a very good thing given the potential downside on Tuesday.

Stay tuned.
