Mets Released Former Top Prospect Cesar Puello

The Mets have announced they have released former outfield prospect Cesar Puello. Puello, 24, has been on the disabled list since April due to a stress reaction in his back which only surfaced after the team outrighted him to Triple-A Las Vegas.  That assignment was rescinded and he was added back to the 40-man roster. Since […]

MMO Special Feature: Mets Have Lost Third Most Days To DL

I decided to do a little research yesterday after learning Dilson Herrera was heading to the DL. Not to make any excuses because bad baseball is bad baseball anyway you slice it, and excuses are for losers, but… The number of players the Mets have lost to the major league disabled list this season is jaw-dropping. Dilson Herrera, 2B – Fractured middle finger Buddy Carlyle,...

Dave Cameron on the Mets’ quick start

In reality, the Mets are probably still the 7th or 8th best team in the National League, but they’ve already collected 10 irrevocable wins, and the 4th, 5th, and 6th best teams in the NL aren’t exactly monsters. The NL Wild Cards will be won by two flawed teams that likely over-perform their actual abilities by a half dozen games or so. The Mets are already further down that...

Puello Placed On DL, Back On Mets 40 Man Roster

According to a report by Adam Rubin, when the Mets placed Cesar Puello on waivers, which he cleared and was eventually demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas, technically none of it ever happened. Apparently, Puello told the team he was injured and general manager Sandy Alderson had to rescind the demotion after an MRI on Monday revealed a “stress reaction” in his back — which is a...

Mack on Cesar Puello

I’m sorry that Cesar Puello didn’t work out. I really am, but it’s his job to get to Queens, not mine. The organization lost confidence in him the second after he went down for the PED scandal and he never regained their respect. At best, he became the fourth outfielder in Las Vegas and simply could’t repeat his Binghamton numbers were, no matter how light the air was. Frankly...

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...

Will John Mayberry Jr. signing hurt Eric Campbell, too?

Barring any Spring Training trade (ha!) or injury, the Mets’ 2015 Opening Day roster is pretty much set. There’s the usual battles for roster spots 23-25 but hopefully those are among players who have already seen time in the majors last year with the Mets. We all hope that the days of an NRI like Blaine Boyer coming to camp and winning a job with 10 good innings of Grapefruit...

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...
