Dbacks Bloomquist sent to DL

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks have recalled outfielder Tony Campana from Triple-A Reno and placed infielder Willie Bloomquist on the 15-day disabled list with a left hand contusion, according to D-backs' Executive Vice President & General Manager Kevin Towers.

Campana, who spent 2 seasons with the Cubs (2011-12), has 54 stolen bases in 59 attempts, a 91.5 percent success rate, which ranks first in the Majors since 2011 (minimum 30 stolen base attempts) ahead of Chase Utley (91.2%), Mike Trout (90.1%), Jean Segura (88.6%) and Paul Goldschmidt (88.2%). 

In 71 games for the Aces this season, the 27-year old hit .288 (67-for-233) with 41 runs scored, 8 doubles, 3 triples, 1 homer and 22 RBI along with 23 walks, 24 stolen bases (28 attempts) and a .350 on-base percentage. 

This will be his first stint with the D-backs, and he will wear No. 19. Campana was acquired from the Chicago Cubs on Feb. 18 for Minor League right-handed pitchers Erick Leal and Jesus Castillo. Overall in 184 career Major League games, he has hit .262 (83-for-317) with 50 runs scored, 9 doubles, 1 home run and 11 RBI.

Bloomquist, 35, was hit in the left hand as pinch-hitter on June 26 @ Washington Nationals but X-rays did not reveal a break. In 22 games for the D-backs, he was hitting .292 (21-for-72) with 4 doubles and 8 RBI. He began the season on the disabled list with a strained right oblique and was reinstated on May 31. In his first 10 games back, he hit safely in 7 games at a .441 clip (15-for-34).
