3:23 p.m.: Eric Campbell will start in left field on Thursday night.
Campbell may soon see time in the outfield, Terry Collins told reporters after Wednesday’s game, during which Campbell hit his first big-league home run >> Watch Here.
“With the way he’s swinging, you got to find some place to put him in the lineup,” Collins said.
Campbell, 27, is bating .438 with a .444 OBP in 18 plate appearances since being promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas.
He played all four infield positions, as well as left and right field, this season in Triple-A, though he’s regarded mostly as a corner infielder.
“I’d be ready if they need me,” Campbell said Wednesday (Newsday, May 22).
