A much leaner Camargo was almost equally impressive. The switch-hitter was 8-for-28 with one homer, two doubles and eight RBIs. The pair’s play was creating a welcomed tough decision for the Braves brass.
Manager Brian Snitker said he didn't see a pathway to carrying Camargo and Riley on the initial roster. Evidently, the team's thinking changed in the days between that March 1 proclamation and the sport's suspension 12 days later.
Ultimately, what Anthopoulos pondered probably would’ve won out. With both playing so well, there was little logic in leaving either in Florida. The Braves could’ve used a trial run with both, and if they determined one needed more reps, he could join the Triple-A club later.
Of course, the conversation is now moot. But if MLB resumes in 2020, it will surely do so with expanded rosters, making it even easier to carry both players. The team would still be tasked with finding each ample playing time, but that’s a discussion for a later day.
