BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2018 Due to publishing agreements, the 2018 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2018 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2017 A former Venezuelan soccer star, Leonel Campos continued to show off the big stuff that makes him so enticing as well as the utter lack of command that threatens to hold him back.
2016 After a late-season audition in 2014, Leonel Campos returned to Triple-A to refine his game, which he did, improving all his peripherals. The Padres, despite their bullpen woes, rewarded him with a single inning of work for all his efforts.
2015 Leonel Campos arrived at spring training without his velocity, got rocked at Triple-A and continued to struggle after a May demotion and June move to the rotation, but the Padres were encouraged enough by the former soccer player's in-season development to give him a September summons.
2014 Leonel Campos, who backs mid-90s heat with a hard slider, allowed half his runs last year in his first four appearances after missing 2012 thanks to Tommy John surgery; he held right-handers to a sub-.400 OPS and saw his numbers improve after leapfrogging over High-A in June.

2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Leonel Campos. Am I wrong for thinking he will be a high-leverage, late inning guy for the Padres in the next two years?
(Doug from San Antonio)
He's really jumped on to the radar this season and the velocity keeps improving. I saw him work 95-97 mph recently in San Antonio with a good slider. I like the arm and it's a definite big-league reliever. I do think the delivery is a little stiff and think command may hold him back. Having said that, this was his first real season on the mound in pro ball so you can't rule out improvement. Crazy numbers and good stuff though. (Jason Cole)
