The storied Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero trade actually involved a total of four players, with Hector Noesi joining the Mariners and Jose Campos going to the Yankees. Following the news, reported by Danny Knobler, that Campos underwent Tommy John surgery on Friday, we can officially rule the trade a dud.
In his second season at Single-A Charleston in 2013, Campos posted a 3.41 ERA with 77 strikeouts and 16 unintentional walks over 87 innings. Campos, now 21, dealt with elbow inflammation during spring training and the Yankees used him lightly as a result.
Unless the Yankees want to start his service time clock, they will have to live with Campos on the 40-man roster throughout the season, as Mike Axisa of River Ave Blues notes.
