Diamondbacks' Cesar Puello: Signs with D-backs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The D-backs signed Puello to a minor-league deal Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

He'll likely begin 2018 at Triple-A Reno, but Puello could make a push for a bench role in Arizona with a strong spring. In 1,039 career plate appearances at Triple-A, he's hit .289/.379/.447 while showing a useful combination of power and speed. At the very least, Puello is an interesting name to file away for the reserve rounds of deep NL-only leagues.

Cesar Puello: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Ropes trio of hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello went 3-for-3 in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox.

The production represented Puello's first major-league multi-hit effort, as well as his first time hitting safely since an Aug. 28 pinch-hit appearance. The rookie figures to continue seeing occasional playing time for the balance of the regular season as the Rays try to get a better feel for what he can offer after claiming him off waivers Aug. 19.

Rays' Cesar Puello: Batting fifth Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello will play left field and bat fifth Monday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Puello will start for the second time in three games with the Rays facing a lefty pitcher (CC Sabathia), checking into the lineup for a resting Corey Dickerson. Though he's batting in a prominent spot in the lineup, Puello may not represent an appealing target in DFS contests. He's yet to find much success in the majors this season, recording two hits in 16 at-bats with the Rays and Angels.

Rays' Cesar Puello: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 DL 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.
