SPEED IS FOR STEALING BASES –
March 20, 2021 – Deputies discovered a Cubs duffel bag that contained “several baseball gloves, cleats, several neatly packaged bags of a white substance, two green packages and a bag that was suspected of being doused with essential oils that had $1,000 cash in it.”
Per the arrest affidavit obtained by Whitehead, there were a total of three people in the car when Eagle County sheriff’s deputy Evan Jaramillo made contact with Camargo.
Camargo is still being held in jail under a $75,000 bond. The Cubs signed Camargo as an undrafted free agent in December 2014. He began his professional career in the Mexican League with Diablos Rojos del Mexico.
Camargo, 25, spent the 2019 season with the Cubs’ High-A affiliate in Myrtle Beach. The right-hander returned to Mexico last year, appearing in five games with Yaquis de Obregon in the Mexican Pacific Winter League.
