Eddy Camacho P L L 6' 1" 180 23 09-17-1982 Cal State Northridge

In 2003, Camacho played for the La Crosse Loggers of the Northwoods League before going to Cal State Northridge. The strange thing is the fact that the two years he pitched in college were really nothing special: 1-9, 5.99, 1.91 in 2003 and 2-4, 5.66. 1.90 in 2004.

However, the Mets still signed Camacho in 2004 as an undrafted free agent, let him appear in 3 games for the GCL Mets, and then shipped him off to Brooklyn where he allowed only 19 hits in 44 innings pitched (3-1, 0.69, 0.77) and earned the nickname “everyday Eddy”. Go figure. 2005 brought more success, this time at St. Luice (2-4 2.74 10 saves). 2006 was a “breakout” year for Camacho at Binghamton. He appeared in 53 games, posted a 3.63 ERA (an absolutely great number for AA ball) and struck out 61 in 79.1 innings pitched. His 3 season minor league totals are 8-9 in 119 games, 2.61, 1.14 and 148 Ks in 172.2 IP.

In 2007, Camacho did pitch for New Orleans (2-1, 4.44, 1.41 in 32 relief appearances), pitched a little for St. Lucie (1-1. 2.77, 0.92 in 9 stints), but wound up ending the season for Binghamton (0-0, 0.00 in 5 appearances).
In September 2007, Camacho was assigned to play in the Arizona Winter League (which is always a sign that the organization wants to invest more time and money in you).
In 2008, Camacho pitched for both Binghamton and New Orleans, combining for: 5-3, 3.05 in 51 appearances.
