Braves' Johan Camargo Goes on DL After Suffering Knee Injury Running Onto Field

ATLANTA -- Rookie shortstop Johan Camargo was placed on the 10-day disabled list after suffering a bone bruise in his knee while jogging onto the field before Tuesday night's game.

Rookie shortstop Dansby Swanson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

Camargo was taking the field when his right knee appeared to lock as he tried to avoid stepping on the first-base chalk line. He fell to the ground and needed help off the field.

Swanson is expected to start in Wednesday night's game against the Phillies.
