Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Diamondbacks outfielder Tony Campana suffered a lacerated left hand Thursday while trying to steal second base during a Cactus League game against the Brewers and wound up needing eight stitches.

Campana will likely be held out of baseball activities for the next several days while the laceration heals.

The 26-year-old speedster was acquired from the Cubs this offseason in exchange for minor league right-handers Erick Leal and Jesus Castillo. He boasts 54 stolen bases in 59 career attempts and is currently in the running for a spot on Arizona’s bench.

    The kid is gritty, always give 110%, and plays the game the right way.

      Hmmm, that picture doesn’t really say playing the right way to me….

        What are you talking about? He was running full speed when he hit that wall….he might only weigh 110 lbs, but full speed is fast for Campana….probably got his bell rung on that one.

        That doesn’t seem right, but ok.

        That was him making an attempt at a catch against the wall for the cubs not AZ

    It’s definitely a joke at this point to talk about gritty players in Arizona, but this kid is that and more. He’s balls to the wall 100% of the time. It was fun seeing him get some playing time against the reds since he went to college at the University of Cincinnati. The kid can fly, his inside the park home run was fun to watch.
