The scrappy former Cubs outfielder sliced his left hand while attempting to steal second base in a Cactus League game yesterday. The laceration required eight stitches.
Campana (.222/.263/.389) has 4 hits in 19 plate appearances this spring, including 2 runs batted in and a run scored. He’s drawn 1 walk vs. 5 strikeouts and is 1-for-2 in stolen bases.
“Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Diamondbacks outfielder Tony Campana suffered a lacerated left hand Thursday while trying to steal second base during a Cactus League game against the Brewers and wound up needing eight stitches.
Campana will likely be held out of baseball activities for the next several days while the laceration heals.
The 26-year-old speedster was acquired from the Cubs this offseason in exchange for minor league right-handers Erick Leal and Jesus Castillo. He boasts 54 stolen bases in 59 career attempts and is currently in the running for a spot on Arizona’s bench.”
