It sounds like it was just a cleanup procedure for Campos, who shouldn't be looking at an especially lengthy recovery timetable. That being said, he'll likely be shut down from throwing for at least a few weeks, which will hurt his chances of surfacing with the big club before the All-Star break. The 24-year-old has compiled a 8.80 ERA over 15.1 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake this season.
Campos (arm) was reinstated from his rehab assignment and optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.
Campos underwent surgery for a broken arm last September, which made the nerve issues he suffered in training camp particularly concerning. He was shaky in his rehab appearances at High-A Inland Empire, allowing three runs over just 1.2 innings, but the fact that he has been able to pitch without pain is most important at this point. The Angels will let him continue to find his footing at Triple-A, and he could be a rotation candidate later in the season.
Campos is dealing with nerve issues in his arm and will be placed on the 10-day disabled list, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.
It had been reported that Campos was in full health, but it would appear that's not the case. There's yet to be any news regarding the severity of his ailment, but more information should be available in the coming days. Campos pitched just two innings over two games this spring, during which he allowed five runs off three hits, two of which were home runs.
Campos (arm) said he is feeling 100 percent and will compete for a starting rotation spot this spring, the Orange County Register reports.
The Angels claimed Campos this offseason after he suffered his injury. It looks like it was a smart stash now as they have a 24-year-old who posted a 3.22 ERA across five levels last season. He owns a modest 2.79 K/BB ratio, so he may be able to hold is own if he finds his way onto a major league mound this season. Given how thin the Angels are in the starting pitching department, it wouldn't be surprising to see Campos make his debut with Los Angeles sometime this year.
Campos broke his arm in September, but the Angels still snatched him up based off his strong history of performance in the minor leagues (3.66 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 109 appearances). He is also only 24 years old, so although he'll likely begin his tenure in the organization at Triple-A due to his arm injury, he very well could find his way to the big leagues by the end of the season.
