Chicago Cubs' Tony Campana is picked off first on a throw from Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy to first baseman Paul Konerko during the eighth inning of an interleague baseball game Tuesday, June 19, 2012, in Chicago.
The Chicago Cubs have traded outfielder Tony Campana to the Arizona Diamondbacks for two 17-year-old pitchers.
Campana was designated for assignment last week. The Cubs dealt him to Arizona for Erick Leal and Jesus Castillo, who both pitched in the Dominican Summer League last season.
The 26-year-old Campana appeared in 184 games over the past two seasons for Chicago. He batted a combined .262 with 1 homer and 11 RBIs.
Leal went 6-2 with a 2.44 ERA in 14 outings last year. The 6-foot-3 Leal struck out 70 and walked 11 in 70 innings. Castillo was 2-4 with a 5.40 ERA in 14 appearances.
