White Sox speedster Tony Campana suffers torn ACL

2 Comments

Veteran outfielder Tony Campana, who would have competed for a spot on the White Sox’s bench in spring training, will likely miss the entire season after suffering a torn ACL while working out.

It’s a particularly tough injury for Campana because almost all of his value comes from speed and defense.

He’s a career .249 hitter with one homer and a .583 OPS in 257 games as a big leaguer, but Campana has swiped 66 bases while being caught just nine times and rates well defensively in center field.
