WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Camacho is a LHP from Mexico who played in the independent Pioneer League in 2021.  He throws a low-90s fastball, along with a curve and change, and reportedly has a solid feel for pitching.  The Pirates signed him at the beginning of the 2021-22 international signing period, which didn’t start until January 15, 2022.

2021
IND:  1-3-0, 9.00 ERA, 2.09 WHIP, 23.0 IP, 7.0 BB/9, 8.2 K/9

Camacho started five times and relieved once for Rocky Mountain in the Pioneer League.  The numbers weren’t good, but in Camacho’s defense the Pioneer League was an extreme, high-offense league, with a league-wide ERA of 6.98 and a .310 batting average.  Rocky Mountain had a staff ERA of 9.18.  Also, Camacho was only 17 in a league with an average age around 24.

The Pirates brought Camacho to minor league spring training in March 2022.  He’ll probably open the season in the Gulf Coast League.
