|2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Thoughts on a couple of Mets OF prospects: Cesar Puello and Brandon Nimmo. And yes, Nimmo can stick in center. |
(Jason from NY)
|Puello's not a big prospect for me. He had a nice season, but I've soured on him over the last couple of years and don't see him profiling as an everyday guy.
I don't necessarily buy the idea that Nimmo's sticking in center field. I didn't like the center field play when I saw him in the NYPL in 2012 and I didn't have glowing reports on the ability in the SAL in 2013. I think he ends up in a corner and could be a solid player, but he's extremely risky. (Mark Anderson)
|2013-08-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)||There is speculation in the Detroit media that the Tigers won't take Peralta back, despite the obvious boost he gives them at shortstop, because of "image" concerns. I think that, if they don't play him and lose at any point, their image is tarnished forever. The Giants got to the WS because of a huge contribution from Melky. What do you think? |
(Tigerdog from Orange county CA)
|Well, they did trade for Iglalasis.
Tigerdog, hijacking your question to run this. It's official:
Major League Baseball issued the following discipline today for violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program in relation to the Biogenesis investigation. Players receiving 50-game suspensions without pay for their violations of the Program are:
• Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Antonio Bastardo;
• San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera;
• New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli;
• Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz;
• Padres pitcher Fautino De Los Santos, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A San Antonio Missions of the Texas League;
• Houston Astros pitcher Sergio Escalona, who is currently of the roster of the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks of the Texas League;
• Yankees outfielder Fernando Martinez, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League;
• Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League;
• Free agent pitcher Jordan Norberto;
• Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta;
• New York Mets outfielder Cesar Puello, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League; and
• Mets infielder/outfielder Jordany Valdespin, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League.
Norberto's suspension will be effective immediately once he signs with another Major League organization. All other suspensions are effective immediately. None of the players will appeal their discipline.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon and Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, all of whom already have served 50-game suspensions as a result of their violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program stemming from their connections to Biogenesis, will not receive additional discipline.
Major League Baseball's investigation found no violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez or Baltimore Orioles infielder Danny Valencia.
STATEMENT FROM THE TIGERS:
The Detroit Tigers today issued the following statement regarding the suspension of Jhonny Peralta:
"We recognize the suspension of Jhonny Peralta for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program as a measure taken in the best interest of the game. The Detroit Tigers continue to fully support Major League Baseball's policy and its efforts to eliminate performance enhancing drugs from our game. Per the protocol outline by Major League Baseball's collective bargaining agreement, the Tigers' organization will provide no further comment on Peralta's suspension."
STATEMENT FROM PERALTA:
"In spring of 2012, I made a terrible mistake that I deeply regret. I apologize to everyone that I have hurt as a result of my mistake, including my teammates, the Tigers' organization, the great fans in Detroit, Major League Baseball, and my family. I take full responsibility for my actions, have no excuses for my lapse in judgment and I accept my suspension.
I love the fans, my teammates and this organization and my greatest punishment is knowing that I have let so many good people down. I promise to do everything possible to try and earn back the respect that I have lost." (Maury Brown About Biogenesis and Business)

(Gary from Long Beach)
|I think he's going to be suspended. I also now have to wait until next year to see if he is able to continue his success in order to determine what type of prospect he (Zach Mortimer)|
|2013-07-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Cesar Puello is raking in AA. How come I haven't seen him on any mid-season rankings from any prospect website? Is it the BioGen link? |
(teaaker from Seattle)
|I don't want to speak for our prospect guys, but I would imagine it's lack of a track record. He's still a good age for that level but has never really done this before even in his repeat year in the FSL. I've never seen the player, so it's a better question to ask at a prospect chat. (Zachary Levine)|
|2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Cesar Puello has been dominant, but given his approach and track record, there is reason to be skeptical. If he keeps it up, where do you see him ranking by this offseason?|

(Biscuits2 from The Bay)
|if he's on the 40, maybe in September. No need to rush him for this year's club. (Harry Pavlidis)|
|2011-03-22 11:00:00 (link to chat)||What is your opinion on Cesar Puello and his power development? Lots of scouting websites believe he will grow into it, but his production has yet to match his tools. |
(Ryan from Austin, TX)
|Ryan, Puello has big power. It's a spectacle when he takes bp. The good news is that he's really trying to establish himself as a good hitter first, knowing that the power will start to play in games in due time. He did that last year and also managed to steal 45 bases. He's a potential five tool guy. (Paul DePodesta)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
