Buzz: The Jose Campos trade?
By Andrew Marchand
A recurring feature of the blog, Buzz, will follow Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances, as well as other top Yankee prospects, all season long.
While the dividends on Michael Pineda have yet to come in, the top prospect acquired with Pineda in the Jesus Montero has had a tremendous start to his Yankee career. For Single-A Charleston, the 19-year-old Jose Campos has allowed only one earned run in his first 16 innings. His .093 batting average against is second amongst starters in the South Atlantic League.
Overall, Campos is 3-0 with a 0.58 ERA. He has 18 strikeouts and four walks. Not bad.
