Jorge Campillo News


Jorge "Tuco" Campillo Hidalgo (born on August 10, 1978, in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) is a right-handed pitcher who plays for the Atlanta Braves in Major League Baseball.

Campillo was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Braves on February 14, 1996. Campillo was released by the Braves after the 1996 season and signed with a team in the Mexican Pacific League. The Mariners acquired his rights and signed him on March 26, 2005.

He made his major league debut in 2005 with the Seattle Mariners, playing in two games during the season. After leaving a game in 2005 with an injury, Campillo required Tommy John surgery and subsequently missed most of the 2006 season. After rehabbing, Campillo made a rocky first post-surgery appearance with the Mariners in late 2006, after the team purchased his contract from Triple-A Tacoma. He became a free agent after the 2006 season, but was resigned to a minor league contract by the Mariners.
