Braves release Bautista; Camargo to play third

10:11 AM ET

Braves ended the Jose Bautista experiment when the veteran third baseman was released before Sunday afternoon's game against the Marlins
With Bautista gone, executive vice president and general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Johan Camargo will be the everyday third baseman.


Atlanta #Braves today granted 3B José Bautista his release. Johan Camargo will be the everyday 3B. RHP Lucas Sims has been recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.

It was a worthwhile experiment with very little invested. Now the countdown to Riley's debut begins...
Awesome rocking Braves 9th-inning 6-run rally comeback win :cool: to take the series,
after Teheran's 4th-inning disaster giving up 6-runs, & bullpen giving up 3-runs in the last 3 innings did not help either.

No need to count them out too quickly late in games with this kind of potential being demonstrated.

Sure is nice when the Braves hitting machine is cranking to help offset pitching deficit lapses.

Braves highlight tweets: :bounce:

@Braves were down 9-4 entering the 9th.
What a comeback. #WALKOFF
Chipper Jones
Unreal!!! Great win fellas
#Braves rallied from a five-run ninth-inning deficit for their biggest ninth-inning comeback in exactly eight years, when Brooks Conrad capped a seven-run rally with a game-ending grand slam on May 20, 2010.
6 runs in the bottom of the 9th to win it. THAT is a nice comeback!
TFW you remember some of those mean Tweets y’all were sending us in the middle of the game...
Ender Inciarte
Thank you to all the fans who reached out to check how I’m feeling. All good and I’ll be ready for tomorrow! 💪ðŸ�»


Braves rally for 6 runs in 9th, beat Miami on Swanson's hit

Ronald Acuna Jr. drove in two runs in the seventh and another in the ninth as the Braves moved 11 games over .500 for the first time since July 5, 2014. Atlanta has won nine of its last 12 and keeps performing well in the clutch with an NL-best 88 runs scored this season in the seventh inning or later.
"I almost expect 'em to do it," said manager Brian Snitker, whose club has 43 victories in its last at-bat, most in the majors, since he took charge on May 16, 2016. "I mean, down six in the bottom of the fifth, I felt good. I really did. I thought that these guys have a lot of time to go to work here and then you get a little bit farther away, but they never stop. It's a great win for these guys."
Miami led 6-0 after four innings and 9-4 to begin the ninth.

Riley has only been in AAA for about three weeks. I don't expect him up til sometime late June or July. Camargo's bat is starting to heat up, and regardless, he is a better defensive third baseman than Riley. The primary reason they're not in a big hurry to bring him up.
Felt bad Monday to lose ground to the Phillies in the standings, but feels good & better to gain it back Tuesday after the Braves win.

Impressive how MVP Albies scores all 3-runs which includes his 14th HR.

Albies homers, scores 3 times in 3-1 victory: 5/22/18

Daily Recap: Ozzie Albies belted his 14th homer and scored all three of the Braves' runs as Brandon McCarthy got the win over the Phillies

Ozzie 3, Phils 1: Albies scores all the runs in win

Dynamic Braves second baseman hits 14th homer of season

Albies took Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez deep on the first pitch he saw in the third inning, turning a hanging curveball into a 366-foot homer to right field. The home run briefly tied him with Bryce Harper of the Nationals for the most in the NL -- until Harper went deep in the fifth against the Padres in Washington.
Albies also homered off Velasquez on April 29, when he started a Braves win with a solo shot on the first pitch of the game. April 29 marked the start of Albies as the Braves' everyday leadoff hitter, and he showed why he's so valuable in that role Tuesday, scoring each time he got on base.


3rd - Albies homered to right (366 feet).
5th - Markakis grounded into fielder's choice to first, Albies scored, F. Freeman to third.
9th - Acuña Jr. singled to center, Albies scored.

Really enjoying watching Albies play the game. What a fun guy to watch!
Interesting Braves tweet today about MLB Stats. Click on graphics image to view a larger one.

Let's not talk about Dansby Swanson's 4-StrikeOuts yesterday.

Would love to see Markakis as an All-Star. Dude is a Pro's Pro and has played solid ball for his whole career. He's earned any accolades he receives, IMO.

Regarding the strike outs yesterday, the other guy gets paid too. Sometimes you've just got to tip your cap and move forward. Velazquez could've curled up and died with the bases loaded and nobody out; instead, he buckled down and did his job. We still got the win either way.

4th inning of game 1 against The Sawks. Julio's hanging sliders, bad! Julio's pick off move, good! That's certainly one way help yourself get back on track.

We'll see how the rest of the game plays out.

Julio is pitching better this season, but the only way he'll ever have consistent success is to pitch for a team that plays in a pitchers park. San Diego, New York, Detroit... a fly ball pitcher is doomed in parks like SunTrust and Fenway.
