    Padres' Luis Campusano: Battling oblique injury

    Luis Campusano didn't play for Triple-A El Paso after Aug. 30 due to an oblique injury, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.Campusano spent the majority of the 2021 campaign with El Paso, slashing .295/.365/.541 with 15 home runs in 326 plate appearances. San Diego recalled Campusano from El Paso on Tuesday in a procedural move, but it's unclear if the 23-year-old is healthy at this point. In any case, he should be ready to go ahead of spring training, when he should get the chance to compete for the No. 2 catcher job with the big club.

    Padres' Luis Campusano: Enjoying strong season in Triple-A

    Luis Campusano is slashing .295/.365/.541 with 15 home runs and 45 RBI through 81 games with Triple-A El Paso.The backstop struggled during his time with the San Diego Padres earlier in the campaign, going 3-for-34 with a 28.9 percent strikeout rate. However, he's thrived in his first stint at the Triple-A level and just completed a superb August during which he slashed .373/.458/.765 with six homers and 13 RBI across 15 contests. Campusano was the California League co-MVP in 2019 and remains firmly embedded as one of the organization's top hitting prospects. He's unlikely to make much of an impact at the big-league level this season with Austin Nola and Victor Caratini holding down catcher duties while the Padres fight for a playoff spot, but Campusano could have a future as the team's top backstop.

He figures to remain at the alternate site while Nola and Victor Caratini remain healthy.

    Padres' Luis Campusano: Legal troubles resolved

    Georgia prosecutors dropped felony marijuana possession charges against Luis Campusano on Friday due to a lack of probable cause for the traffic stop that led to his October arrest, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.Campusano was pulled over in the early morning and found with 79 grams (2.8 ounces) of marijuana in his car. The offense is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison in Georgia but results in a much lighter sentence in other parts of the country. In Camupasano's case, it won't result in any punishment at all. Campusano will remain as the San Diego Padres' backup catcher in the short term, but he'll likely head to the minors once Austin Nola (finger) gets healthy.

    Padres' Luis Campusano: Secures Opening Day spot

    Luis Campusano will open the season on the big-league roster while Austin Nola (finger) heads to the injured list, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.Nola's injury isn't expected to keep him out long, and Campusano will be stuck behind Victor Caratini during his time on the roster, so he might not get the chance to make more than two or three starts before being sent back to the minors. Campusano could surface from time to time this season if Nola or Caratini gets hurt, but he's probably not yet ready to make a significant impact, as his one-game debut last season represents his only appearance to date above the High-A level.

    Padres' Luis Campusano: Could make roster with Nola injury

    Luis Campusano would be in line to make the San Diego Padres' Opening Day roster if Austin Nola (finger) isn't ready by Opening Day, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.Nola fractured the middle finger on his left (non-throwing) hand Saturday, casting doubt upon his ability to play when the regular season kicks off. If Nola is unable to go, Victor Caratini would likely open the season as the Padres' primary catcher, with Campusano filling in as the backup. The 22-year-old has enjoyed a strong spring, slashing .313/.421/.438 with a pair of doubles. He has struck out only three times in 16 at-bats.

    Padres' Luis Campusano: Returns to camp Thursday

    Luis Campusano briefly left camp earlier in the week due to a personal issue, but he returned Thursday and could be in the lineup either Friday or Saturday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.The nature of the issue has not been disclosed, so there's no telling whether it's related to Campusano's felony marijuana possession case, which remains pending in Georgia. With both Austin Nola and Victor Caratini ahead of Campusano on the catching depth chart and the legal issue clouding his outlook, Campusano may have a tough time breaking the Opening Day roster.
