The injury bug may have bitten the Atlanta Braves once again. Johan Camargo left Wednesday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies in the top of the fourth inning after fouling a ball off his leg. The ball appeared to hit right above his shin guard on his right leg.

He immediately went to the ground and stayed there until he was attended to by Atlanta’s training staff. Camargo wasn’t able to put a lot of weight on his injured leg and had to be helped off the field.

Camargo started in right field Tuesday night and had a double and a homer. He started in left tonight and was 0-for-1 at the plate before exiting. Rafael Ortega replaced Camargo. We will pass along more updates as they become available.

UPDATE - The Braves have issued an update on Johan Camargo saying that he left the game with a right shin contusion and that he is considered day-to-day.
