Center Field: Sergio Campana
Sergio Campana was signed out of the Dominican Republic during the 2018 season. Campana is a very athletic outfielder. In 45 games and 197 plate appearances with the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Dominican Summer League affiliate during his first professional year (which was 2019), Campana stole 24 bases in 29 attempts. Obviously, his speed is his best tool coming in with an 80-grade, the highest grade a player can receive. He’s also a plus fielder with a future fielding grade of 60 with an average arm, coming in with a 50 throw grade.
While Campana only has a 45-future hit grade and game power grade, he was still an overall solid hitter during his 2019 season. He posted a .281/.362/.374 line with a .364 wOBA and 110 wRC+. A .350+ on-base percentage with his kind of speed is a deadly combo.
Campana can still has room to grow. He stands at 6’1″, weighing in at 160 pounds. 2019 was his age 17 season and 2021 will be his age 19 season. In Baseball America’s analysis of the young outfielder, they stated he has gap power now with good bat speed and a compact swing. They also say he could develop average or better power in his future. Afterall, his future raw power grade is 50.
