Jose Campos The Inside Scoop

Here is the inside scoop on Jose Campos whom we received from Seattle in the Pineda/Montero deal.  I would like to thank our friends at Prospect Instinct.

Looking to unearth a prospect diamond in the minor league baseball rough?  Well, then Baseball Instinct has a scoop for you.  When the Mariners signed a 16 year old, hard throwing Venezuelan pitcher away from the St. Louis Cardinals in 2009, it was essentially a non-event in the greater baseball landscape.  He then remained in the Venezuelan summer league for two years while getting his US visa squared away.  So it was difficult to get a read on what kind of talent the Mariners had.  To further complicate things, there is some confusion as to his actual name.  On some prospect lists you will find him listed as Jose Campos, but on others you may find him as Vincente Campos.  This has caused some people to wrongly assume that these were two different players. Up until now he has remained shrouded in obscurity.  Please let me introduce you to Jose Vincente Campos, a Northwest League pitcher that needs to be on your radar.                          ...................................  more
