The Braves just announced they have recalled Johan Camargo from AAA Gwinnett after optioning Victor Arano and Jasseel De La Cruz to the Stripers following last night’s game.

Camargo didn’t have a single hit in his first stint with the Braves this year, going 0-11 with a walk. However, he was off to a red-hot start with the Stripers, racking up eight hits and nine walks in just 32 plate appearances — good for an impressive .531 OBP. He also already has three homers in just six games.
The Braves are hoping this success is sustainable at the major-league level, and if it is, he could find himself back in the starting lineup, given how much Cristian Pache has struggled through the first month of the season.
