Other Notable Pitchers –
Valdez was fairly effective last season once the Angels acquired him from Detroit going 2-3 with a 4.22 ERA striking out 22 batters in 23 innings. However, after a brief call-up to the Angels in May, the Angels put him on waivers and the San Diego Padres claimed him thus ending his career with the Angels.
Vicente Campos was thought to be a longshot to win the 5th starter spot in Spring Training, but he did not pitch very well. Campos made two appearances and allowed five runs with two strikeouts and posted a 22.50 ERA in the Spring. Campos has been pitching in Salt Lake ever since and has not pitched much better going 0-2 and posting an 8.80 ERA.
Campos has pitched 15.1 innings and allowed 22 hits striking out nine batters while walking 12. His WHIP 2.22. Campos is a longshot to be called up this season unless he turns it around soon.
