Latest Update Eric Campbell went 2-for-3 with a home run while adding a walk in the Mets triumph over the A's on Wednesday night at the Oakland Coliseum. Wed Aug, 20, 11:03 PM
Takes a fair amount of walks. Has pretty good power and run-producing qualities at the minor-league level. Is also versatile enough to play on either infield corner. Runs pretty well for a power hitter.
Flaws: : Needs to become a more consistent hitter, especially against right-handed pitchers, in order to stick in the big leagues for the long haul. Isn't really everyday player material at the highest level.
Campbell doesn't see a whole lot o starts, but when he does, he is definitely capable of making the most of it. In his last five games, he's seen four starts and is 5-for-15 (.333) with two home runs, four RBI and a pair of runs scored. When he gets these bursts of starts is tough to predict, but if you have a bench spot to stash him, he can be very productive at intermittent points.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Mets are certainly not an offensive juggernaut to say the least, but Campbell was able to power out a three-run shot in the fourth inning, which was enough for the Mets to take the win on Friday night. Despite having only two home runs up to this point, Campbell owns a respectable .299 average through his 134 career at-bats in 2014, but everyday at-bats are not falling his way at the time to take advantage of his services as far as fantasy is concerned.

Campbell is now 12-for-23 (.522 BA) with three doubles, two RBI and 2 runs scored over his last six games as he continues to do a respectable job filling in for the injured David Wright. However, Wright has yet to be placed on the disabled list, so there is a good chance he will be returning to the starting lineup any day now, which would move Campbell back to a bench role. Either way, he is someone to keep an eye on as the season progresses after a nice stretch of hitting. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Campbell has been a pleasant surprise for the Mets of late, going 7-for-19 (.368 BA) with three doubles over his last six games. Although his recent production has shown what he is able to do if given regular playing time, his fantasy value remains limited until we see if David Wright's recent injury will require a stint on the disabled list.
