Donaldson scratched with right calf tightness, Camargo to start at third base

The Braves will be without Josh Donaldson on Tuesday.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves announced that third baseman Josh Donaldson was scratched for tonight’s game with right calf tightness. This is significant given the 33-year-old’s battles with calf issues last season. The hope entering the season was that moving to a natural grass stadium versus the demanding surface utilities by the Blue Jays would lessen the role taken on Donaldson’s lower half. That may be the case but having issues one month into the season is certainly cause for concern regardless of the immediate severity.

Stay tuned as the Braves will almost certainly address this development as the severity of the ailment is monitored. We will have any updates that may be passed along.
