Pitching for low Class A Charleston tonight, Campos threw five no-hit innings, allowed one run (it was unearned, thanks to a couple of fielding errors in the first inning), walked two and struck out seven against Augusta. It was a nice two-day stretch for Campos’ family in the series, as his cousin, Giants lefthander Edwin Escobar, had shut down Campos’ Charleston club the previous day, throwing six shutout innings with two hits, no walks and seven strikeouts.

While Escobar is an interesting 19-year-old southpaw with some pitchability, Campos is a potential frontline arm. Campos, a 19-year-old signed out of Venezuela three years ago, ranked as one of the Top 20 prospects in the 2010 Dominican Summer League and Venezuelan Summer League after a strong VSL season, then came as advertised last season when he ranked as the short-season Northwest League’s No. 3 prospect.

Campos has a power fastball that he can ramp up to the high-90s when he needs to, but he also throws it for strikes, backs it up with solid secondary stuff and has a big, durable 6-foot-4 frame.

Love watchin this kid in Seattle, and now the NYY organization has this stud.  People forget about Campos when talking about the Montero deal.  This kid should rise through the minors at a nice pace.
