The Kansas City Royals have promoted left-handed pitcher Matt Campbell to high-A Wilmington. He is the fourth Bees player to move up to the Carolina League club this season, joining infielder Marc Maddox and pitchers Yovany D’Amico and Jason Godin.
Campbell was 4-2 with a 3.47 ERA in 11 games, including six starts. He’s won his last three apearances, including his first pro complete game in the second game of a doubleheader here against Cedar Rapids on Sunday.
The Royals drafted Campbell in the first round in the 2004 draft out of the University of South Carolina. He pitched for the Bees in 2005, suffering a season-ending shoulder injury that kept him sidelined for all of last season.
