The Braves suffer a four-game sweep and will now head out on a 7-game road trip. The Braves once again grabbed an early lead as Freddie Freeman doubled off the top of the left centerfield wall for a double and scored two batters later on a single by Johan Camargo. That lead however wouldn’t last long as Trevor Story went down and got a low breaking ball from Sanchez and drove it out to left to lead off...

Atlanta Braves are enjoying the Johan Camargo effect but 2019 is coming

Johan Camargo is like a Swiss army knife for the Braves. Maybe not Charlie Culberson level, but his value is tremendous to the franchise.

Camargo is no longer a conundrum

Camargo is no longer a conundrum

Johan Camargo has proven that he’s no one-season wonder. He’s here to stay in some form or fashion. Around this time last year, Johan Camargo had what was an unexpectedly solid season derailed in bizarre fashion after he somehow managed to trip and fall over the baseline before the game even began. Before the injury, he had played his way into the starting lineup at shortstop since Dansby Swanson was in the midst of an utter struggle in 2017. I figured that the solution would have been to just take Swanson’s struggles as they came since it was a rebuilding season and there was no...
