When the Atlanta Braves open the Grapefruit League season on Saturday, don’t expect to see many of the team’s veterans in the lineup. Brian Snitker told MLB.com’s Mark Bowman on Thursday that he plans to ease veterans Marcell Ozuna, Nick Markakis along with both of his primary catchers in Tyler Flowers and Travis d’Arnaud into the lineup. However, the team’s third base competition is expected to begin right away with Johan Camargo and Austin Riley expected to alternate starts on an every-other-day...

The Atlanta Braves will head to Spring Training in 2020 with an infield group that is largely set with the exception of one big question mark at third base. Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies and Dansby Swanson will once again make up three quarters of the team’s infield but Atlanta is searching for a replacement at third base for Josh Donaldson who left to join the Minnesota Twins this offseason.

Talking Chop Roundtable: Will the Austin Riley, Johan Camargo combo get the job done ?

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Will Atlanta’s internal options be enough to plug the hole left by Josh Donaldson’s departure? One of the bigger storylines of the spring for the Atlanta Braves will be their situation at third base. Josh Donaldson’s departure to Minnesota left the Braves with some uncertainty at the hot corner. Johan Camargo was excellent in 2018 but struggled last season. Austin Riley burst on the scene after his debut but faltered down the stretch. Will that combination be enough to get the job done for Atlanta in 2020 or will Alex Anthopoulos be forced to look...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Being surrounded by more questions than answers is nothing new for Atlanta’s enigmatic and perennially surprising infielder. For much of the 2019-20 offseason, Braves fans have closely watched the hot corner with anxious anticipation. Like the Fellowship scuttling around a distracted Sauron, the Braves have, on the other hand, addressed nearly every other corner of the roster. Catcher, outfield, the bench, the starting rotation, and the bullpen have all seen significant upgrades. Meanwhile, third base remains un-addressed. Perhaps the team will soon make yet...

Following the addition of Marcell Ozuna, the Atlanta Braves appear set to enter spring training with Johan Camargo or Austin Riley at third base. While another significant move before spring camp doesn’t appear likely, the Braves would likely have some in season options should Camargo/Riley not work out.
