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 Farm Report: Puello Keys Walk-Off Win For Vegas

LAS VEGAS 7, SACRAMENTO 6 The only game played in the Mets minors yesterday, this one was certainly a battle of the bats as both teams went back and forth the entire game.  Daisuke Matsuzaka gave up five hits and three earned runs in five innings, walking four and striking out four, but the Mets eventually won the game on a Matt den Dekker walk off single in the bottom of the...

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...

Cesar Puello Should Be An Untouchable Prospect
