Atlanta Braves infielder Ehire Adrianza has gone on the paternity list ahead of Game 6.

With a shot at winning the 2021 World Series on Tuesday night, the Atlanta Braves will be without infielder Ehire Adrianza.

The Braves’ utility player has been placed on the Postseason Paternity List. He has been replaced with infielder Johan Camargo on Atlanta’s World Series roster. The Postseason Paternity List allows a player to miss a minimum of one day and a maximum of three. Upon return, Adrianza would retake his place on the Braves’ World Series roster from Camargo. He may not return.

Adrianza could potentially celebrate the birth of his child and his team winning the World Series in the same week.

While Camargo is not expected to start for the Braves in a potential World Series clincher in Game 6, he could come off the bench late in the game if need be. Keep in mind that Game 6 and potentially Game 7 will be played in Houston. This means the DH will be in effect and the pinch hitter is not expected to be deployed in either of these games. Camargo could still play, though.

What will be interesting to see is if Adrianza rejoins the club in time for Game 7 on Wednesday night if the Braves do not take care of business in Game 6. One thing is for sure, though. If the Braves do go on to win their first World Series championship since 1995, Adrianza will be there to celebrate the monumental moment 26 years in the making during the Braves’ victory parade.

It would be really something if Camargo ends up becoming a World Series hero for Atlanta.

Braves have no need to panic after blowing lead, losing Game 5. light. Related Story
