Luis Campusano
21-Year-Old CatcherC
San Diego Padres AA
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Campusano, a second-round pick in 2017, had a breakout season at High-A, and while he clearly has a good command of the strike zone (10.7 BB%, 11.7 K%), his numbers are slightly less impressive when we look a little deeper. He hit .292 with nine home runs in 107 games away from Lancaster, one of the most hitter-friendly parks in pro baseball (he hit .423 with six HR in 15 games in Lancaster). His numbers in primarily neutral hitting environments are a better gauge of his present abilities -- a potentially above-average to plus hitter with average power. He has the tools to be a quality defensive catcher, thus profiling as the Padres' long-term starter at that position. We can recognize the noise in his California League numbers and still conclude that he is a top-10 catching prospect, just not a top-five one. He will spend his age-21 season at Double-A, which by itself is an accomplishment for any catcher. Read Past Outlooks

Could make taxi squad
CSan Diego Padres  AA
May 21, 2020
Campusano is a candidate to be placed on the Padres' taxi squad if a 2020 season takes place, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Campusano probably isn't ready for a leap to the major leagues -- he spent all of last season in High-A ball -- but placement on the taxi squad may be the best way to continue his development considering the perilous state of the minor-league season. The 21-year-old is coming off a co-MVP campaign in the California League and is considered the top catching prospect in the Padres' system.
