Atlanta Braves utility man Johan Camargo is still proving why he needs to be a part of the every day rotation.

Camargo got the start in left field with Ender Inciarte getting the night off on Wednesday. He drove in a game-winning three RBI-double against the Cubs.

Former Braves outfielder Brian Jordan said Camargo challenges Ender Inciarte, Nick Markakis and Dansby Swanson's starting roles.

"Those three guys, there's pressures on those guys," Jordan said. "They have to go out there and perform and be consistent. If not, Camargo can fill in and play every day at that position."

Jordan said Carmago also provides GM Alex Anthopoulos with potential trade opportunities if the bullpen continues to struggle.

"We know we have a Camargo that can just step in, and then we have other guys that we can trade," Jordan said. "It's going to be important for those guys to continue to play well."
