    • Cesar Puello: Heads to free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Puello cleared waivers and elected to become a free agent, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Puello struggled to a .206/.308/.206 line in 17 games between the Rays and Angels last season, prompting Tampa Bay to drop him from their 40-man roster following the season. He performed much better at Triple-A -- slashing a combined .327/.377/.526 with 13 homers and 18 steals in 87 games between Salt Lake and Round Rock -- so he should catch on somewhere else as outfield depth.

    • Rays' Cesar Puello: Promoted to majors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Puello was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Puello was promoted to the big club just a day after being claimed off waivers. He'll take the roster spot of Jacob Faria (abdominal), who was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding move. Puello managed an impressive .397/.440/.620 line with seven homers and 13 steals in 44 games for Triple-A Salt Lake before being cut loose. However, the Rays outfield is pretty set, so he'll see most of his playing time off the bench.

    • Rays' Cesar Puello: Claimed by Rays
      By RotoWire Staff

      Puello was claimed off waivers by the Rays on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. A robust .397/.440/.620 line with seven homers and 13 steals in 44 games with Triple-A Salt Lake wasn't enough for Puello to maintain his spot on the Angels' 40-man roster, as the team designated him for assignment last week. The Rays will welcome him aboard, although it's uncertain if they plan to use Puello in the majors before September. He figures to at least see occasional chances off the bench over the season's final month.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Puello was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports. He was bumped to create room on the 40-man and active rosters for Andrew Bailey (shoulder). Puello was called up earlier in the week and went 1-for-4 with an RBI and two stolen bases in his big-league debut. The 26-year-old figures to return to Triple-A Salt Lake if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
