Campbell signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics, which includes an invitation to spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Campbell spent the entire 2018 season with Triple-A New Orleans, slashing .313/.420/.445 with six homers and eight stolen bases in 95 games. The 31-year-old owns a career .221/.312/.311 slash line across parts of three major-league seasons and figures to serve as organizational depth.
Campbell agreed to a minor-league deal with Miami on Tuesday, Jacob Resnick of Metsmerized Online reports.
Campbell spent the past season overseas playing with the Hanshin Tigers of the Japanese Central League following a few years in the Mets organization. From 2014-16, he appeared in 196 major-league games, but struggled mightily at the plate in recent seasons, hitting just .173 with one home run and nine RBI during 40 contests in 2016. Although the 30-year-old will likely begin the season at the Triple-A level, he will provide a little extra depth for the Marlins and could earn some big-league at-bats this summer.
Campbell agreed to a contract earlier this month with the Hanshin Tigers of the Japanese Central League, ESPN.com's Adam Rubin reports.
After being outrighted off the Mets' 40-man roster on Nov. 2, Campbell likely would have struggled to land anything more than a minor league deal in free agency had he elected to stay stateside, so he'll head to Japan for what's presumably a greater payday. Campbell demonstrated some nice positional versatility during parts of three seasons with the Mets, but his career .221/.312/.311 batting line over 505 plate appearances prevented him from ever becoming a major contributor at the big league level.
Campbell was outrighted off the 40-man roster Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.
He hit .173 with one home run in 75 at-bats with the Mets, and there were simply better utility infield options in the organization. Look for him to continue to serve as organizational corner infield depth.
Campbell will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Campbell is capable of playing both corner infield spots and can provide some further depth in the corner outfield, but he's unlikely to see many regular starts for the Mets in September. In 74 plate appearances this season, Campbell has slashed a meager .159/.270/.222.
Campbell will be added to the Mets roster as the 26th man for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.
Campbell was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas a week ago, but he'll make a brief return to the big league club Tuesday. The 29-year-old struggled at the plate in 30 games with the Mets earlier in the season, batting just .159 with 23 strikeouts in 63 at-bats.
Campbell was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.
The Mets officially recalled James Loney on Tuesday, as expected, so Campbell's demotion comes in response to the need to free up a roster spot. Campbell was unspectacular in 30 games for the Mets, hitting a paltry .159 while striking out 23 times in 63 at-bats. He'll return to Las Vegas, where he slashed .363/.493/.593 in 33 games last season.
Campbell is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox.
Campbell started the last eight games at first base for the Mets, but he tallied just three hits over that span, so manager Terry Collins decided to hold him out Monday to give him a mental break. Wilmer Flores will get the start at first base in Campbell's place.
Campbell went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Nationals.
Campbell accounted for New York's final three runs of the contest from the seventh inning on, but the game was well out of hand at that point. Still, seeing the 29-year-old deliver offensively was encouraging considering he'll be tasked with holding down the first base job in the absence of Lucas Duda (back). There's short-term value to be had in the corner infielder if he keeps driving in runs.
Campbell has been inserted into the Mets' lineup in place of Lucas Duda (back), Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Duda was initially listed as the starter at first base, but he's apparently dealing with stiffness in his back, so Campbell will step in. Campbell will hit fifth against Milwaukee's Zach Davies, while Duda should be considered day-to-day.
Campbell is starting at first base Tuesday against the Nationals.
Lucas Duda, who normally starts at first, save for certain games against southpaw starters, is on the bench for the contest against Max Scherzer and the Nats. Manager Terry Collins announced that Duda has back stiffness, which required an injection that will sideline him for two days. Campbell will likely start both days, as lefty Gio Gonzalez is on the hill Wednesday.
Campbell could start two games in the Mets' series against the Dodgers, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.
The Mets will be facing three southpaws in the four-game set, so Campbell could get a start at third, resting David Wright, and first in place of Lucas Duda. Campbell started at third Sunday and notched two hits while also making a diving stop in the hole and throw to first to record the last out of the win.
Campbell was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Campbell will take the roster spot of Jacob deGrom, who was placed on the bereavement list Saturday. DeGrom is allowed to remain on the list for 3-7 days, so Campbell's stay with the big league club may be a short one.
Campbell was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Campbell was a roster casualty after Rafael Montero was recalled earlier Tuesday. The 29-year-old had just three plate appearances so far this season, and will continue to serve as an organizational soldier at Triple-A until the Mets have further need of him.
Campbell pinch hit and didn't reach base in his lone at-bat Tuesday against the Marlins.
Campbell continues to fight for a roster spot after the Mets released Ruben Tejada. In 21 spring training games, Campbell is 12-for-42 but only has two extra base hits and has struck out 10 times. He currently is backing up David Wright and Wilmer Flores at third base.
Ruben Tejada's release potentially opens the door for Campbell to break camp with the Mets, the NY Daily News reports.
Campbell, who is on the bubble, already got a bump with Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) expected to start the year on the disabled list. Wilmer Flores is likely to open the season as the starting shortstop with Matt Reynolds the possible back up. Campbell's production was not reflective of how hard he hit the ball last year and he could open the season as the team's insurance policy at third baseman behind David Wright with Flores playing shortstop rather than seeing time at the hot corner.
Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer was activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's game against the Rockies. Cuddyer had been bothered by a sore knee for the better part of July, and was officially placed on the DL on July 24.
Cuddyer was hitless in seven at-bats during his recent two-game rehab stint at Class A St. Luice.
In a corresponding roster move, infielder Eric Campbell was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Pinch hitter Eric Campbell drove in two runs with a single in the seventh inning to put the Mets past Washington.
Campbell hit in a second straight game and has three RBI in the last three games.
Mets first baseman Lucas Duda isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game.
Duda has started 86 games at first, including the last eight.
He's replaced by Eric Campbell, who starts his first game of the year at that position. Campbell had 14 starts at first base last season.
Mets third baseman Eric Campbell went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in his team's win over the Giants on Wednesday.
Campbell, who had one hit in his last 25 at-bats prior to the game, enjoyed his first multi-hit performance since June 7.
