Player Outlook
Luis Campusano entered 2023 with 92 big-league plate appearances over the previous three years, but he finally received a decent stretch of playing time last season. He made the Opening Day roster as San Diego's backup catcher but went down with a thumb injury in mid-April and was sidelined until after the All-Star break. Gary Sanchez had settled in behind the plate for the Padres, but Campusano saw regular action the rest of the way before a sprained ankle kept him out for the final week of the campaign. The 25-year-old didn't provide much defensive value but excelled offensively with seven homers, 27 runs, 30 RBI and a .319/.356/.491 slash line in 174 plate appearances. Campusano hit similarly in the minors and doesn't have much else to prove at Triple-A, and he should be the favorite to open 2024 as the Friars' starting backstop. Even if that's the case, his outlook is likely to be limited by volume since he's played over 100 games in a season just once in his professional career. Additionally, he hasn't proved he can produce at the major-league level for even a half season, let alone a full one, so there's plenty of risk that comes with his massive upside.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Possible waiver wire pickups

    If you play in a one-catcher league consisting of 12 teams or fewer, chances are you don't need help at that position right now. But in anything that requires you to go a little bit deeper, Luis Campusano could be a godsend. The 24-year-old took over as the Padres' primary option behind the plate once Gary Sanchez went down with a fractured wrist Sept. 6 and has hit .346 (18 for 52) with two home runs and an .882 OPS in that role, striking out at just a 9.1 percent clip. His offensive prowess was never in questions in the minor leagues, where he hit .300 with an .842 OPS across six seasons, but he stalled out at Triple-A because of concerns about his defense. Those concerns remain, but the Padres don't really have a choice anymore. Campusano is getting his opportunity and making the most of it.
