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 grade 80 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.

2021
R:  272/391/424, 92 AB, 3 2B, 4 3B, 1 HR, 14 BB, 30 K, 7-10 SB
A:  169/282/238, 160 AB, 5 2B, 3 3B, 24 BB, 67 K, 13-14 SB

The Pirates sent Campana to Bradenton to open the season, but after a good stretch from mid-May to early June, he collapsed at the plate.  From June 6 through July 11, he went 8-for-79 (.101) with one extra-base hit.  He walked a lot, but had a very difficult time picking up breaking balls and offspeed stuff.  He went to the FCL in mid-July and hit fairly well there, although still with a lot of swing-and-miss.  Campana split his time between center and right, showing his elite speed in the outfield and on the bases.

Campana will likely try Bradenton again in 2022.
