Diamondbacks recall Tony Campana, option Tyler Skaggs

Well, that didn't last long. Tyler Skaggs' latest spell with the big-league club proved a short one, and didn't involve any actual action. The club has returned to a standard seven-man bullpen, with speedy outfield Tony Campana being added to the roster instead.


Campana, 27, was hitting .292 (101-for-346) with 11 doubles, 6 triples, 1 home run, 29 RBI and 32 stolen bases in 101 games with the Aces in 2013. Campana, who ranks second in the Pacific Coast League in stolen bases, has appeared in 2 games with the D-backs this season, going 3-for-10 (.300) with 2 stolen bases. Since 2011, the Kettering, Ohio native ranks second in the Major Leagues with a 90.3 stolen-base percentage (min. 30 attempts, trailing Chase Utley (91.4) and ahead of Mike Trout (89.8) and Alexi Casilla (87.8). Campana was acquired from the Cubs on Feb. 18 for Minor League right-handed pitchers Erick Leal and Jesus Castillo.

Skaggs, 22, has combined to go 6-7 with a 4.16 ERA (41 ER in 88.2 IP) in 16 games (14 starts) with Single-A Visalia and Reno in 2013. In 7 starts with Arizona this season, he is 2-3 with a 5.35 ERA (23 ER in 38.2 IP). He last pitched for Arizona on July 27, taking the loss against San Diego, allowing seven earned runs in 3.2 innings.
