Tony Campana Traded To Diamondbacks

Bob Levey

The speedy outfielder is taking his talents to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

Sorry, Tony Campana fans. The speedy outfielder won't be back in a Cubs uniform, as he has been traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks:

It's really hard to project 17-year-old pitchers, but at that age, both clearly have upside, as general manager Jed Hoyer stated:

I know many of you are disappointed to see Tony go. In reality, he wasn't going to make the team and would have, if he had stayed in the organization, spent the year at Iowa. I'm not sure what the Diamondbacks' outfield situation is, but with Jason Kubel being one of their starting outfielders, there's a guy you could pinch-run for in the late innings. I'd say Campana has a shot at making the D'backs' 25-man roster, and that's good for him.

I wish him the best. He's fun to watch. He could easily be back playing at Wrigley Field in another uniform this year.
