Campusano established himself as a prospect to follow with a solid showing on the showcase circuit. He showed flashes of raw power and a quick righthanded bat to go along with average arm strength. There were questions about his body--which still had some baby fat at the time--and his pure receiving skills behind the plate. In the offseason, Campusano got himself into tremendous shape, slimming down and appearing more chiseled and muscular in the spring. His raw power took a step forward as a result; it grades as an easy 60 for some scouts, with some being even more aggressive than that. Evaluators aren't certain quite how much power Campusano will get to in games. He's changed his stance often in an effort to find a comfortable hitting position that will allow his power to play, and he's played well against inferior competition this spring. Defensively, Campusano's body improvements have helped his lateral mobility but he still lacks soft hands and struggles with blocking. He has an average arm. Campusano is committed to South Carolina, but his hot spring could see him shoot off the board. Teams picking in the 20s are interested, and he's likely to end up going somewhere between 20 and 50 depending on how the board plays out.
