Camarena, a 25-year old left handed pitcher, was selected by the Yankees in the 20th round of the 2011 amateur draft out of Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, California. The southpaw spent most of his five seasons in the system between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton; he has pitched between both levels since missing all of the 2015 season after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from his left elbow.

In 107 career games/94 starts with the organization, Camarena has gone 27-30 with a 3.67 ERA. He has fanned 402 batters and walked just 116 in 532 2/3 innings of work. Camarena started 22 games for the Thunder and RailRiders this past season, he went 6-6 with a 3.65 ERA.
