WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Along with Osvaldo Gavilan and Luis Tejeda, Campana was one of the Pirates’ three biggest international signings in the 2018-19 signing period.  He has good speed and projects to stay in center field.  One question is whether he’ll add power.

2019
DSL:  281/362/374, 171 AB, 4 2B, 6 3B, 15 BB, 44 K, 24-29 SB

Campana was hurt at the start of the DSL season, but didn’t miss much time.  He got off to a slow start, going 3-for-27 in his first seven games, but he batted .313 after that.  The strikeouts could be a concern going forward.  The Pirates played him in center most of the time and he did very well stealing bases.

Campana should be in the GCL in 2020.
