ERIC CAMPBELL RUMORS

Wright Not In Lineup Tonight, Will Have Shoulder Re-examined

David Wright has been scratched from tonight’s lineup and Eric Campbell will be starting at third base. Terry Collins told reporters that Wright came to him and said his shoulder was hurting and the team decided to have his shoulder re-examined by team doctors. Wright missed time in August due to his ailing shoulder and had to receive a cortisone shot during the All Star break...

Why Eric Campbell should be playing LF now (and maybe next year too!)

Over 160 career ABs, Matt den Dekker has shown that he is most likely not going to be the Mets everyday LF for the foreseeable future. We all know he can play the position, but he can’t hit. His K rate has decreased in his current stint on the Mets, but he isn’t hitting for power, he’s not hitting for average, he’s not doing anything with his bat. His wRC+ is 56, his ISO...

Mets need to find more playing time for Eric Campbell

Friday night Eric Campbell got a start in left field because a lefty was on the mound and he delivered a game-winning home run. For the season Campbell has a .299/.345/.403 mark in 148 PA but cannot find a spot in the lineup to play on a regular basis. A third baseman by trade, Campbell put up a 1.016 OPS when he got to play the hot corner this year. But with David Wright around...

How did we all miss on Eric Campbell?

Chances are that if you’re reading this article, you’re a pretty die-hard Mets fan. You go to the games, you watch the games and you read about the games. It seems safe to say that you’re pretty knowledgeable about the club. This also means that you have strong opinions about the team, too. Perhaps you knew that Jacob deGrom would be a good starter if given a chance. ...

Eric Campbell and his playing time

Eric Campbell deserves to be playing more. Actually, Eric Campbell deserves to be starting. It’s obvious that the Mets are having struggles offensively. Bobby Abreu, Chris Young, Eric Young Jr. and Curtis Granderson make up the four potential outfielders on a daily basis. Campbell hit .326 with a .437 OBP in two seasons at AAA (153 games). His career minor league numbers are a...

Give Eric Campbell a chance in left

It’ll still take some time to get used to seeing a tall first baseman wearing #29 not named Ike Davis playing for the Mets. But what does Eric Campbell, or Soup, bring to the team? The six-foot-four, 205-pound utility player has had success with his short, compact swing and level hitting. An eighth round pick of the 2008 draft, the Connecticut native was called up five weeks into...

Eric Campbell Rates A Closer Look

OK, call me a front-runner if you must, but based on what I’ve seen of Eric Campbell so far (and with a mere handful of at-bats it ain’t much), he looks to have qualities that would do much to inject some sorely needed jolt into the Mets’ lineup. I speak not so much of numbers, as the vast majority of his stats are those of the minor league variety, but rather the look he...

New York Mets: another call up to help offense

The New York Mets appear to be making a second transaction this week to help their sputtering offense. Eric Campbell will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Josh Satin. Campbell had a very impressive spring and had continued his hot play into the season for the Las Vegas 51s. He has played 6 positions so far this season and so can be a valuable player off the bench for...

Leaving Las Vegas: Red-Hot Eric Campbell Called Up By Mets

The New York Mets have announced that Eric Campbell will join the Mets in time for Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.  No corresponding rule was announced, but Adam Rubin says that the likely target headed for AAA will be Josh Satin. Campbell will need to be added to the 40-Man Roster, but the Mets have an open spot created when they designated Omar Quintanilla...

Campbell Could Push His Way Onto Mets Bench

Eric Campbell continues to build a strong case for a spot on the Mets bench, especially in light of the continued struggles of first baseman Josh Satin who is batting .158 in limited play and spot starts. Campbell, who named the Pacific Coast League player of the week on Tuesday, is tearing it up at Triple-A Las Vegas where he is hitting .340 with a .426 on-base and .509 slugging...
