Mets outfield prospect Cesar Puello is hitting .261/.306/.304 through 14 games for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Puello was hitting .326/.403/.547 with 21 doubles and 16 homers in 91 games last year at Double-A Binghamton when his season ended due to a PED suspension, so his poor slash line in a great ballpark for hitters (Las Vegas) is troubling. He only has two extra-base hits, both doubles. The extended layoff could be causing his slow return to form. Apr 17 - 9:18 AM

Mets prospect outfielder Cesar Puello has been assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Puello's breakout season was cut short due to a PED-related suspension in early August, leaving many questions about his breakout 2013 was influenced by his relationship with Biogenesis. If Puello hits in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, he could see some time in Queens during 2014.

Mets activated OF Cesar Puello from the restricted list.

Puello is done serving his 50-game Biogenesis-related PED suspension and is now back on the Mets' 40-man roster. The 22-year-old posted a promising .328/.405/.550 batting line with 16 home runs, 73 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 90 games this season at the Double-A level. He could be a fantasy monster someday soon.

Mets prospect Cesar Puello has absolutely sizzled through the first 62 games of the season at Double-A Binghamton, hitting .336/.401/.612 with 15 homers, 55 RBI and 18 stolen bases.

The 22-year-old outfielder hit a ridiculous .435/.458/.884 with eight homers and four stolen bases in the month of June. Given the constant struggles of the Mets' outfield, the dynamic Puello could become an option sooner rather than later.
