Can Puello Squeeze Out Campbell For Bench Spot

Eric Campbell is a virtual lock to make team. Dave in Spain asks… ”Also, what are the chances of Puello making it over Campbell? Or does he get optioned/sent down on the last day of ST, after most teams have set their rosters?” Daniel McCarthy replies… My understanding, as of this moment, is that outfield prospect Cesar Puello is out of options.  Therefore, if he does...

The Cesar Puello Dilemma

Left-handed pitching out of the bullpen, the Wilmer Flores bid to man the shortstop position, the return of Matt Harvey and when will there be room to accommodate Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz; these are the story lines out of Port St. Lucie this spring. I’d like to add the Cesar Puello dilemma to that mix. In a Met minor league system dominated by pitching talent, Cesar Puello...

When The Bullet Hits The Bone

I wanted to share a conversation I had with a follower on Twitter tonight. It started out talking about Cesar Puello, but quickly veered into the Josh Edgin situation and how I believed the Mets dropped the ball this Winter by not bringing in a proven lefty reliever – which by the way was supposed to be one of the three team stated offseason goals. Then, as I took one quick look...

Cesar Puello Deserves One Last Chance

It’s now or never for Mets outfield prospect Cesar Puello. The 23 year old Puello needs to break camp on the Mets 25 man roster this spring, or they will risk losing him to waivers. Puello is coming off a very disappointing season last year with Triple-A Las Vegas. He batted .252 with just seven home runs in 105 games despite hitting in the favorable conditions of the Pacific...

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...

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...

Cesar Puello Placed On Temporary Inactive List

  On Wednesday the Las Vegas 51s placed Cesar Puello on the temporary inactive list but have not given any reasons behind the move. This season with Vegas and prior to this move, Puello, 23, was... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]

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...

Cesar Puello Should Be An Untouchable Prospect

On the Bleacher Report yesterday, Mike Rosenbaum posted a win – win prospect packages for top MLB trade targets on the market.  One of his predictions included the Mets and the Phillies.  In his prediction he said that the Phillies could trade Jimmy Rollins to the Mets in exchange for Cesar Puello. He does note that the 35-year old Rollins would not be a long term option for...
