Latest Update Eric Campbell with three hits in win over Rangers Sat Jul, 05, 07:35 AM
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 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.

Campbell smashed his first career home run on Wednesday night, and is now sitting on a .438 average with five RBI through his first 16 at-bats. Although the sample size is way too small at this point, it is worth noting that he he has just two strikeouts over his first four starts in the big leagues, which is not something you normally see from a youngster will no experience at this level. He is someone to keep on your watch list in the early stage of his career. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Campbell was red hot at Triple-A Las Vegas before his promotion, slashing .355/.442/.525 with three homers-- not to mention a nifty 20/20 K/BB ratio. He was the lone blow to Hyun-Jin Ryu in his return from the DL Wednesday, touching him for a 2-run homer in the sixth inning. The Mets are struggling on offense, so it makes sense they're looking for offense in every nook and cranny. Campbell is a sneaky "punt" play against lefties in DFS. Analyst: Spencer Silva
