Campana hit a walkoff RBI single on Wednesday night against the Brewers but has struggled overall this season for the big-league Diamondbacks, batting just .150/.164/.200 in 26 total games. The speedy 28-year-old outfielder may get another look eventually.

Tony Campana surprisingly played the role of hero Thursday night, going 4-for-6 with a game-winning tenth-inning base hit to beat the Giants 6-5.

All four hits were singles, which isn't a surprise if you're familiar with Campana's slap and hustle brand of play. He added a steal, and was also picked off once. Campana quintupled his season total for hits tonight, which is all you need to know about his fantasy prospects going forward. That said, every reserve outfielder has his day, and this was Campana's: His tenth inning single to right off Yusmeiro Petit plated Cliff Pennington from second and helped Arizona avoid a 3-9 start.

Diamondbacks optioned OF Tony Campana to Triple-A Reno.

Campana's demotion likely means that Alfredo Marte will make the Opening Day roster. The speedy outfielder stole 30 bases for the Cubs in 2012 and should be back with the Diamondbacks at some point this season.

Tony Campana tripled and drove in two runs in the Diamondbacks loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

It was a good showing for the 26-year-old, who is making a late push to be on the Diamondbacks Opening Day roster. Campana's chances are likely aided by the injuries to fellow outfielders Adam Eaton and Cody Ross. If he makes the team, Campana will likely be utilized as a pinch runner for his blazing speed -- he stole 30 bases for the Cubs in 2012.

The laceration on Tony Campana's left hand re-opened during his second game back Thursday.

Campana will have to pay another visit to the doctor and seems likely to require stitches again. His status for Opening Day is uncertain. "I got jammed," he said, referring to his at-bat in the bottom of the seventh. "I didn’t even notice that it happened and then I got back to the dugout and I was about to go onto the field and I looked down and my hand was bleeding."
