Braves shortstop Johan Camargo hurt running onto field

ATLANTA (AP) Rookie shortstop Johan Camargo has been pulled out of the Atlanta Braves' lineup after appearing to injure 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. He fell to the ground on the infield grass.

Camargo was unable to put weight on his right leg when leaving the field. He needed assistance from assistant trainer Jim Lovell and third base coach Ron Washington.

Jace Peterson replaced Camargo in the lineup at shortstop. The team had no immediate update on the apparent injury.

Camargo is hitting .292 with three homers and 19 RBIs.
