I went to an actual Met game for a change.  It was a mistake as the Mets lost 8-4 but the highlight of the game for me was seeing the minor league update and hearing that Cesar Puello had collected three hits the night before. It’s likely that you’ve heard Puello’s name before but it might be more for his unfortunate connection to Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez than his baseball play. Puello jumped into my prospect radar in 2010 when he hit: .292/.375/.359 for Savannah and stole 45 bases.  He followed that up with a slightly less impressive year in Port St. Lucie but (as he picked things up at the end) I still had high hopes.  2012 was a lost year to injuries and by 2013 he had basically slipped off my prospect radar. We are 52 games into his 2013 season and he’s hitting: .326/.401/.606 in AA and he’s slugged 13 home runs and stolen 17 bases.  That’s a lot to be excited about… if not for the looming suspension. What do the Mets do?  Puello could possibly skip AAA and join the club...
