Diamondbacks send Tony Campana back to minors day after game-winning hit

(Matt Kartozian, USA Today Sports)   I’m sure this wasn’t what Tony Campana was expecting the morning after winning the game with a walk-off single for the Diamondbacks the night before. Campana was sent to AAA-Reno on June 19th and the Diamondbacks called up right-handed reliever Matt Stites. Campana was hitting only .150 at the big-league level this year, with a .164 on-base...

Tony Campana steals three bases during one at bat

Former Chicago Cub Tony Campana is one of the fastest men in baseball. After being acquired by the Diamondbacks this winter, Campana lost out on his bid to make the major league roster, and is currently playing with AAA Reno. On Saturday night, Campana did something pretty cool in the Aces' game against the Fresno Grizzlies: he stole all three bases in one inning. Furthermore...

Crazy Legs Campana Headed to the Desert

Last week, the Cubs outrighted Tony Campana off thier 40-man to make room for Scott Hairston. Today, the Diamondbacks agreed to give up two pitchers for the speedster...RHP Erick Leal and RHP Jesus Castillo. Judging by the quality going out, I wouldn't expect much on the quality coming in, but maybe the Cubs unearth one of those diamonds in the rough. Leal, a 6-3" righty...

To Campana, the one that got away…

My Cubs unrequited love is one that should have never been.  It was truly love at first sight when he made his debut, but the fact that it is now unrequited is a tragedy of Lou Brock proportions.  The recently DFA’d Tony Campana is the source of my one way love affair.  This scrappy little white guy stole my heart like so many other Cubs fan with his blazing speed and his blazing...

Tony Campana went airborne on a crazy dive into third base (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Most players dive or slide into a base to slow them down from running full speed. Tony Campana did it to avoid a tag. And boy, was it incredible. Campana tried going from first to third after a throw on an attempted pickoff play went into right field. The throw beat him to the bag and pulled third baseman Matt Downs off the line, so the quick...
