You may remember Tony Campana as the speedy outfielder used infrequently by the Cubs between 2011 and ’12. Over those two seasons, Campana stole 54 bases (including 15 steals of third base) in 59 attempts and was on base 106 times, 96 of which were via single, walk, or hit by pitch. In other words, in about one out of every two times Campana reached base, he attempted to steal a base and was successful 91.5 percent of the time.
The Diamondbacks acquired Campana in a trade with the Cubs this February and had him start the year with Triple-A Reno. In 62 plate appearances, Campana is only hitting .192 but has stolen six bases in as many attempts, and it includes a trifecta he achieved yesterday: he stole second, third, and home during the same at-bat.
