José Vicente Campos Carnota (born July 27, 1992) is a Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Career[edit]

Prior to the 2012 season, John Sickels of Minorleagueball.com considered him the Seattle Mariners' fifth best prospect for 2012.[1]

On January 13, 2012, Campos and Michael Pineda were traded to the New York Yankees for Jesús Montero and Héctor Noesí.[2][3][4] He was added to the 40-man roster on November 20, 2013.[5] He underwent Tommy John surgery in April 2014 and missed the season.[6] After the 2014 season, the Yankees non-tendered Campos, and then signed him to a minor league contract.[7] Campos was added to the 40-man roster on November 4, 2015.

On July 31, 2016, the Yankees traded Campos to the Diamondbacks for Tyler Clippard.[8] The Diamondbacks promoted Campos to the major leagues on August 25.[9] On November 4, the Angels claimed Campos off of waivers.

Personal life[edit]

Campos is cousin to shortstop Alcides Escobar, and pitchers Edwin Escobar and Kelvim Escobar, as well as nephew of shortstop José Escobar.[10]
