"He's going to wear every one of those gloves that's in his bag this spring," manager Terry Collins said. "He's going to play at third. He's going to play a little bit in the outfield. He's that kind of a guy."
Campbell is likely to play at first and third base for most of the spring after hitting .263 with three home runs and 16 RBI in 190 plate appearances in 2014. He played 23 games in the outfield, 19 at third and 18 at first last season.
Campbell has never caught professionally, but has appeared at six major league positions during his brief career. He has also pitched an inning for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2013. The Mets have not had a position player as a catcher since 2004.
Campbell hit .263 with three homers and 16 RBI over 190 at-bats in 2014.
Serving as his team's designated hitter Wednesday,
Campbell kicked off a five-run third inning with his shot, which broke a scoreless tie. He has two home runs in his last five games after collecting just one in his first 56 games. Campbell has hit .301/.348/.418 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 146 at-bats.
Campbell provided all of the Mets' offense with his fourth-inning home run, and that would prove enough to get them the win. He drove in three runs with his homer, while finishing the game 1 for 3 with a walk.
Campbell has been a productive bench option for the Mets, though Friday's was just his second home run of the season. He is hitting .299/.345/.403 in 134 at-bats.
Campbell went 3 for 4 in the game, with a pair of extra-base hits, both doubles. He scored one run and drove one in, while stealing his first career base in a 5-3 win.
Campbell is hitting .307/.341/.440 in 75 at-bats.
