Marlins outfielder Jose Campusano landed on the disabled list today, retroactive to April 18. One of the more exciting players in the organization, the converted infielder just started playing left field a year ago.
A 70 runner (on the 20-80 scouting scale), Campusano was hitting .290/.290/.355 with four steals over his first 11 games this season at Double-A Carolina. He hasn’t controlled the strike zone very well, with 10 strikeouts and no walks in 31 at-bats.
“Heâ€™s the Louie Castillo type, but faster,” Marlins hitting coordinator John Mallee said. “He slaps the ball, he puts it in playâ€”he doesnâ€™t put many balls in the air.
“He does strike out too much, which heâ€™s getting better at controlling the zone. But if he puts it in play, itâ€™s over, man. He can bunt and as a hitterâ€”he knows his role . . . heâ€™s stays on top of the ball and tries to play a little manâ€™s game. (He’s got a) plus arm . . . speed doesnâ€™t show up yet, but once he gets it, he can go from line to line.”
