After hitting two more home runs last night in a 4-for-5 outburst for Triple-A Las Vegas, Wilmer Flores now has 12 homers and 74 RBIs halfway through the season. His batting line of .325/.361/.537 along with his 33 doubles and 51 runs scored, puts him among the PCL leaders in all of those offensive categories. He has nothing left to prove. Today, Flores took home the No. 6 spot on Baseball America’s latest Prospect Hot Sheet. […]
I’m sitting two rows behind the home dugout on the first base side on Autograph Session and Home Run Derby day, the day before the Eastern League All-Star game in New Britain, Connecticut. A near 90-degree sun is beating down on a glorious summer day. A huge throng of fans snake from the hallway below the stands, up a stairwell in left field and then back down in front of the third base dugouts waiting […]
So, Cesar Puello isn’t the only prospect getting some love from Baseball America today. Both Kevin Plawecki and Rafael Montero have been named to their Minor League All-Star Team, which is a part of their massive mid-season prospect update. This is a nice honor for both guys, and it is a well deserved distinction for the first half they each put together in their respective leagues. The 22-year-old Plawecki started his 2013 season with Low-A Savannah. He tore up opposing pitching, and […]
T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish of ESPN are reporting that the MLB is set to suspend a number of players connected to the BioGenesis clinic, headlined by Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. The suspensions are set to take place post-AS Break. Braun has become vilified in the media because of his attitude towards this whole investigation, and the article highlights the fact that he refused to answer any questions that MLB asked him. Granted, I’m fairly […]
Well, this should come as a surprise to no one at all: The Eastern League named Cesar Puello of @bmets the player of the month for June #mets — Mets Farm Report (@MetsFarmReport) July 8, 2013 Cesar Puello, who was already having a solid year heading into the month of June, went into another gear before the calendar flipped to July. Last Monday, I talked about the type of month he had for the B-Mets, […]
As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets. The truth is, I try to stay away from the “rumor” machine because I feel like I’ve learned my lesson with getting enthralled in things that never actually happen. The Mets are in an interesting position because so much of what they do moving forward depends on Ike Davis. If Davis comes […]
We all knew Cesar Puello was having a ridiculous month of June, but how good did it end up, now that the calendar has flipped to July? He put together a .441/.465/.897 line, good enough for a 1.362 OPS in 68 at-bats. This amazing 17 game stretch has yielded him a 1.013 OPS in 232 at-bats this season, which leads me to this… Puello joins Matt Wieters(’08) & Pedro Alvarez(’09) as the only players <23 […]
As the calendar turns to July, GM’s around the league will be stepping up their assessment of available options to strengthen their rosters. As a team that has publicly announced it will look to be more of a “buyer” than a “seller,” the Mets nevertheless find themselves in an interesting position where choices may become available that could push Sandy Alderson to make a move that would otherwise appear somewhat counterintuitive. When taking into account […]
According to Lynn Worthy via twitter, Cesar Puello, Allan Dykstra, Josh Rodriguez, Jeff Walters, and Logan Verrett will be headed to the Eastern League All-Star team. This comes as no surprise, as the B-Mets, at 47-28, have an 8.5 game lead over the Trenton Thunder in the EAS Eastern Division, and have the best record overall in the league. With a high-performing team comes a lot of All-Star nods. I just talked about how well Puello […]
