Campbell was placed on the restricted list Tuesday. The move was an expected one after Campbell was suspended 80 games Monday following a positive test for dehydrochlormethyltestosterone. He won't pitch again until early August. Anthony Bender's contract was selected in a corresponding move.
Campbell was hit with an 80-game suspension Monday after testing positive for Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (DHCMT), Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Campbell made his big-league debut this season, allowing 14 runs (11 earned) in 11.1 innings across one start and four relief appearances. He'll now be ineligible to play again until early August, leaving the Marlins searching for another starter to fill out their rotation.
Campbell (0-2) was charged with the loss Saturday against the Nationals after giving up five runs (four earned) on nine hits with four strikeouts and zero walks over 3.2 innings. The 25-year-old received the first start of his big-league career Saturday but surrendered nine hits while recording 11 outs. Campbell has allowed 14 runs (11 earned) across 11.1 innings this season, but he could receive additional starts if Elieser Hernandez (biceps) is unable to return from the injured list in the near future.
Campbell is slated to start Saturday's game against the Nationals in Washington, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Campbell was initially scheduled to make his first big-league start last weekend in San Francisco, but poor weather leading up to opening pitch prompted the Marlins to instead deploy him as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen. The Rule 5 pick fanned five hitters over three innings of long relief, but he served up three runs on four hits and two walks to take the loss. Campbell will now get the chance to fill a traditional starting role, with his workload likely to be capped around four or five innings, depending on how efficiently he pitches. The 25-year-old may not be in line for any additional starts beyond this weekend with Elieser Hernandez (biceps) nearing a return from the injured list.
Campbell (0-1) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five over three innings in a loss to the Giants on Sunday. Campbell was brought in to begin the second inning after the Marlins decided to deploy Ross Detwiler as an opener for Sunday's game. The 25-year-old surrendered all three of his runs in the second before settling down in the third and fourth frames. The Clemson product has not had an ideal start to his major-league career, as he's let up seven runs over 7.2 innings to go along with an abysmal 2.09 WHIP. It's unclear if the Marlins plan to move forward with piggybacking him after Detwiler or if they plan to return him to a traditional reliever's role.
