ERIC CAMPBELL RUMORS

Eric Campbell Optioned To Triple-A, Michael Conforto To Remain With Mets

The New York Mets have announced that utilityman Eric Campbell has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room on the roster for Michael Cuddyer who is activated from the disabled list. The news means that rookie Michael Conforto will remain with the big league team and most likely for me platoon would Cuddyer […]

Why Eric Campbell was left off the New York Mets roster

The New York Mets will go into the season without Eric Cambell (68), who hit 3 HR along with 16 RBI last season. The New York Mets set their final roster the other day, and there were not many surprises. With Daniel Murphy ready for opening day, infield prospects Matt Reynolds and Danny Muno both headed back down to Triple-A. Dillon Gee beat out Rafael Montero for the fifth starting...

Eric Campbell and the utility trap

Eric Campbell has shown enormous flexibility on the field for the Mets in 2014. He has played everywhere except center, and catcher, and has a .698 OPS to show for very sporadic playing time. However, just last year his OPS stood at .910 for the entire season, and early this year, he posted a .967 over 33 games in Las Vegas. Play it off as friendly confines if you wish, but there...

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...

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...
