Cesar Puello faces crucial 2015

Finally things started to click for Cesar Puello, a player who has been playing for the Mets organization since he was 17, in 2013, where the 22 year-old hit .326, slugged 16 homers, drove in 73 runs and stole 24 bags. With this promising campaign, it looked that the Mets were going to have their corner outfielder of the future, but after being connected with the Biogenesis investigation...

Winter Ball Wrap-up: Flores, Puello, Rivera Finish Strong

The Venezuelan league still has a 3-way tie-breaker to take care of before playoffs can start.

Who will be standing in the Las Vegas outfield in 2015?

With the left field in New York still looking to be filled, there is also some spaces to be filled in the 2015 Las Vegas outfield. Last year, Cesar Puello, Andrew Brown, Matt den Dekker, Cory Vaughn, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis all appeared in more than 50 games in the outfield for the 51s. If the Mets acquire a big bat in left field then that would leave the outfield bench role up...

Mets Minors: Cesar Puello and Wuilmer Becerra among those who finish strong

Cesar Puello did not duplicate his breakout 2013 season but he is finishing this year with a flourish. Monday he had his third straight multiple-hit game with an RBI. Over his last 44 games, Puello has a .293/.405/.519 line with 18 XBH in 159 PA. The streak includes 32 runs and he was also successful on all five steal attempts. The good news is that’s a nice extended stretch...

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 7 Cesar Puello, OF

7. Cesar Puello, OF Height: 6’2” Weight: 195 lbs. Age: 22 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Some early 2014 Mets top prospect lists do not have Cesar Puello listed in their top 10. While I guess one could make a valid argument that Puello is not a top 10 prospect in the Mets organization, I bet most of these sites excluded him because of the Biogenesis scandal which to me, is ridiculous...

Can Cesar Puello Win An Outfield Spot For 2014?

Hitman asks… Should the Mets fail to acquire another power bat in the OF, what are the chances of Cesar Puello challenging (and winning) a spot come Spring Training? For now, lets say that the Mets retain Ike Davis. Should Davis get his head on straight, I believe another slugger around Davis like Puello in the lineup might benefit Davis just like the presence of Puello benefited...
