Player Outlook
Luis Campusano entered 2023 with 92 big-league plate appearances over the previous three years, but he finally received a decent stretch of playing time last season. He made the Opening Day roster as San Diego's backup catcher but went down with a thumb injury in mid-April and was sidelined until after the All-Star break. Gary Sanchez had settled in behind the plate for the Padres, but Campusano saw regular action the rest of the way before a sprained ankle kept him out for the final week of the campaign. The 25-year-old didn't provide much defensive value but excelled offensively with seven homers, 27 runs, 30 RBI and a .319/.356/.491 slash line in 174 plate appearances. Campusano hit similarly in the minors and doesn't have much else to prove at Triple-A, and he should be the favorite to open 2024 as the Friars' starting backstop. Even if that's the case, his outlook is likely to be limited by volume since he's played over 100 games in a season just once in his professional career. Additionally, he hasn't proved he can produce at the major-league level for even a half season, let alone a full one, so there's plenty of risk that comes with his massive upside.

Campusano submitted his third three-hit game of the young campaign, pushing himself into an eight-way tie for the second most hits in MLB (12). The 25-year-old is well on his way to proving that his .319 average in 2023 wasn't a fluke. Instead, he's slashing .400/.400/.600 and with a 3.3 percent strikeout rate in 30 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Collects three hits in Seoul

    Campusano went 3-for-6 with two doubles, two runs and two RBI in a 15-11 win against the Dodgers on Thursday in the second game of the Seoul Series. Campusano was part of a big first inning for San Diego, knocking in a run with a double to stake the team to a 4-0 lead. He added another RBI double in the sixth and finished the game with three knocks. This was the second time in his career that Campusano has had multiple extra-base hits in a contest, with the other being his two-homer performance against the Dodgers in August of 2023. He's set to be the Padres' primary backstop this season after posting a promising .319/.356/.491 slash line with seven homers and 30 RBI over 174 plate appearances last year.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Placed on IL

    The Padres placed Campusano on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right ankle sprain.

The 25-year-old backstop put up a .319/.356/.491 slash line through 174 plate appearances in 2023, and he projects as San Diego's primary catcher for 2024.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Possible waiver wire pickups

    If you play in a one-catcher league consisting of 12 teams or fewer, chances are you don't need help at that position right now. But in anything that requires you to go a little bit deeper, Luis Campusano could be a godsend. The 24-year-old took over as the Padres' primary option behind the plate once Gary Sanchez went down with a fractured wrist Sept. 6 and has hit .346 (18 for 52) with two home runs and an .882 OPS in that role, striking out at just a 9.1 percent clip. His offensive prowess was never in questions in the minor leagues, where he hit .300 with an .842 OPS across six seasons, but he stalled out at Triple-A because of concerns about his defense. Those concerns remain, but the Padres don't really have a choice anymore. Campusano is getting his opportunity and making the most of it.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Three-run blast in win

Campusano has provided at least one RBI in eight of his last 11 games, knocking in 14 runs over that span. The catcher's third-inning blast put the Padres ahead for good in this contest. He's up to seven long balls, 29 RBI, 26 runs scored and six doubles while slashing .307/.344/.487 through 45 contests. He should continue to see a majority of the playing time behind the dish for the remainder of the season.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Lifts sixth homer

The catcher has seen an increased role since Gary Sanchez suffered a season-ending wrist fracture last week. Campusano is up to six homers, 24 RBI, 22 runs scored and a .305/.343/.481 slash line through 41 games this season, and he should see a majority of the workload behind the dish for the remainder of the campaign.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Drives in three

    Campusano went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Tuesday's 8-0 win over the Phillies.

He was able to get back behind the dish Tuesday, playing the full game at catcher while delivering his first game with multiple RBI since Aug. 7. The 24-year-old backstop has impressed in limited action this year with a .309/.347/.491 slash line, five home runs, 18 RBI, 18 runs scored and five doubles over 118 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Goes deep twice

    Campusano went 4-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Monday's 13-7 loss to the Dodgers. Campusano's massive game included a two-run bomb in the third inning, a run-scoring single in the sixth and a solo shot in the ninth. The 24-year-old backstop is now slashing .354/.412/.521 across 51 plate appearances since returning from the injured list July 19. While Gary Sanchez seems to be San Diego's preferred option at catcher, Campusano's hot bat could change that.
