Jose Campos (elbow) threw live batting practice Monday.

Campos, 21, has dealt with elbow issues the last two seasons and the Yankees are bringing him along slowly. The right-hander is a nice prospect, but he doesn't have any experience above A-ball and still needs plenty of seasoning.

Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Jose Campos from Class-A Charleston.

The 21-year-old compiled a 3.41 ERA and 77/16 K/BB ratio over 87 innings with Charleston this year. The move ensures the right-hander will be protected during the Rule 5 Draft in December.

The Yankees are hoping right-hander Jose Campos (elbow) will be ready for spring training.

Campos appeared in just five games with Low-A Charleston after being acquired from the Mariners in the Michael Pineda deal last season. The 20-year old has future frontline potential but is likely still a year or two away from reaching the majors.

Yankees' pitching prospect Jose Campos was placed on the seven-day disabled list with Class A Charleston last Thursday due to right elbow discomfort.

Campos, who was acquired from the Mariners in the Michael Pineda deal, had a 4.01 ERA and 26/8 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings over his first five starts this season. The timetable for his return isn't yet clear, but the Yankees are confident he's only dealing with inflammation.

Yankees acquired RHPs Jose Campos and Michael Pineda from the Mariners for DH/C Jesus Montero and RHP Hector Noesi.

Campos is far from a throw-in. Armed with a fastball which sits in the low-to-mid 90s, the 19-year-old right-hander has a 3.26 ERA over parts of three seasons in the minors, averaging 8.8 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9. He posted a 2.32 ERA and an 85/13 K/BB ratio over 81 1/3 innings with Low-A Everett last season. While Campos is still a few years away, he has frontline starter potential.
