Detroit Tigers Sign Hot-Hitting 6-Year Veteran Infielder

Versatile infielder, Johan Camargo, known for his time with the Atlanta Braves, has found a new opportunity with the Detroit Tigers.

After exercising an opt-out clause in his minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals, Camargo became a free agent and quickly caught the attention of the Tigers' organization.

Impressed by Camargo's strong performance in Triple-A Omaha, where he boasted an impressive slash line of .298/.412/.544 in just 15 games, the Tigers saw his potential as a valuable addition to their roster.

They were particularly drawn to his switch-hitting ability and positional flexibility, considering his six seasons of experience as a utility player.

By signing Camargo, the Tigers aim to strengthen their infield depth and enhance their lineup's versatility. At 29 years old, Camargo brings a career triple-slash line of .255/.313/.410, along with 37 home runs, 159 RBIs, two stolen bases, and 149 runs scored across 416 games played.

Although his time with the Kansas City Royals was short-lived, Camargo's signing with the Detroit Tigers offers him a fresh start and an opportunity to contribute to a new team.

Tigers fans can eagerly anticipate witnessing his skills on display as he joins the team, providing his valuable experience and versatility to the infield. Photo Credit: Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports
