Atlanta Braves shortstop Johan Camargo hurts knee running onto field

ATLANTA (AP) -- Rookie Shortstop Johan Camargo suffered a bone bruise in his right knee while jogging onto the field before Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Camargo was taking the field when his right knee appeared to lock as he reached down to grab a handful of dirt or touch the chalk on the first-base line.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said he has never seen a player get hurt running onto the field.

The versatile Camargo became the regular at shortstop when top prospect Dansby Swanson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on July 27.

Snitker said a final decision on replacing Camargo will be made Wednesday, though he said Swanson "probably" will be recalled.
