PLAYERS: Cesar Puello
TEAMS: New York Mets
Cesar Puello is currently one of the hottest hitters in the Mets organization. Over his last ten games, he is hitting a very solid .364, with two home runs and nine RBI.

He is starting to live up to his reputation of once being considered a top prospect. He fell out of favor a little bit after two down years in 2011 and 2012 with St. Lucie, but he seems to be back on track, dominating Double-A pitching of late.

Cowgill and Nieuwenhuis Continue to Struggle in Minors

It’s been mentioned a lot this season, but the big league outfield of the New York Mets has a lot to be desired.

Collin Cowgill did just that; he hit .303/.378/.591 in 66 spring training at-bats, and earned the honor of being the starting...

Give Justin Turner a chance at first base

Since the beginning of the 2012 season the Mets have been patient with Ike Davis’s struggles. They even kept him in the majors, allowing him to turn around his season, putting up a wRC+ of 141, offsetting his wRC+ of 79 in the first half.
