Jose Campos will have his personal cheering section this week. (Shari Sommerfield/MiLB.com) In the midst of all the hysteria surrounding the Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero trade, the name Jose Campos might have gotten lost in the shuffle. Campos was the other pitcher the New York Yankees received from the Seattle Mariners in the blockbuster trade. The 19-year-old righty has only been in the minors for two years, and so far the reports are mixed about Campos’s potential. POSITIVES: Campos has the perfect pitcher’s frame at 6’4 and 200 lbs. He throws a low-mid 90’s fastball, which he can locate; it can reach almost 100 mph. Has a decent slider that is getting better and is developing into another plus pitch. Has mound presence and displays confidence in tough situations at a very young age. Settle fans were not stoked to let this kid go. Works hard and continues to take solid steps forward. NEGITIVES: Will Campos keep working hard on improving; and is he able to adapt easily...
