White Sox release Tony Campana after torn ACL

4 Comments

Tony Campana, who suffered a torn ACL while working out on his own in early February, has been released by the White Sox.

Campana signed a minor-league deal with the White Sox in November and was set to compete for a bench spot as a speedy, defense-first outfielder, but the 29-year-old journeyman is expected to miss the entire season.

This could be the end of the line for Campana, or at least the end of his legitimate chances to stick in the majors, because so much of his value came from speed and defense given his lowly .583 career OPS.
