Red Sox's Cesar Puello: Part of summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello was added to the Red Sox's 60-man player pool.

Puello, who is not on the 40-man roster, has a smattering of MLB experience, having appeared in 61 career games for the Angels, Rays and Marlins. The 29-year-old outfielder had 147 plate appearances in 2019 while playing all three outfield positions. The Red Sox are set with their top five in the outfield while Puello and John Andreoli are the primary depth options.

Red Sox's Cesar Puello: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello will make his spring debut Friday, according to MLB.com.

Puello missed the start of camp while finalizing a visa, but that has been cleared up and he is ready to compete for a reserve outfield spot. Puello will man right field and hit ninth in Friday's batting order.

Red Sox's Cesar Puello: Delayed by visa issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello will be late arriving to spring training due to visa issues, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Puello officially signed with the Red Sox as a non-roster invitee last week, but he apparently has yet to secure a visa. It's unclear when the 28-year-old is expected to arrive, but every lost day in camp could prove significant as he attempts to secure a roster spot.

Red Sox's Cesar Puello: Joins Boston as non-roster invitee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello signed Tuesday with the Red Sox on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league camp.

Per Alex Speier of The Boston Globe, Puello's contract will be worth a prorated $625,000 if he spends any time in the majors this season. The 28-year-old is capable of playing all three outfield spots, but he profiles better defensively in either corner. Puello collected 147 plate appearances between the Angels and Marlins in 2019, slashing .248/.356/.384 with nine extra-base hits and no stolen bases.

Cesar Puello: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello (hip) elected free agency after being outrighted by the Marlins on Thursday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The 28-year-old spent time with the Angels and Marlins in 2019, amassing a .740 OPS while carrying a slightly above-average 37.5% hard-hit rate. It's unclear whether a team will take a chance on Puello, who struggled in each of his two stints in the majors. If he does get picked up by a club, he'll likely provide organizational depth until he experiences an uptick in production.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello (hip) was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday.

The 28-year-old was traded to the Marlins in June and played 32 games for Miami before being sent to the injured list with a hip flexor strain. In 44 total games in 2019 with the Angels and Marlins, Puello hit .248/.356/.384 with four home runs and 18 RBI.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Sets out on rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter on Friday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Puello will play five innings in his first rehab game. He has been sidelined since Aug. 4, so it shouldn't be a lengthy rehab assignment.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a left hip flexor strain, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Puello has done very little since joining the Marlins, hitting .179/.281/.238 in 32 games. He'd become the team's regular center fielder, but he's unlikely to keep that role once healthy unless Miami gives up on Lewis Brinson again.

August 4, 2019 04:40 PM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Likely heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Don Mattingly said Puello (hip) is likely to be placed on the injured list. Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Puello was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays with left hip flexor tightness and was initially labeled day-to-day, but it looks as though he'll require a longer absence. Assuming he does land on the shelf, the 28-year-old will be eligible to be activated August 15.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Sustains hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello was removed from Sunday's game at Tampa Bay with left hip flexor tightness, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Puello struck out in his lone at-bat Sunday before leaving the contest during the fourth inning. The 28-year-old should be considered day-to-day.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Recaptures playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Though Puello will crack the lineup for a fourth consecutive game, it's worth noting that the Marlins have had the designated-hitter spot available in Tampa Bay for the past two days. As a result, it's tough to bank on Puello handling an everyday role moving forward, especially while he's managed a lowly .181/.284/.241 slash line in his 31 games since being acquired from the Angels on June 19.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Twins, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Puello will head to the bench for the third straight day, as Harold Ramirez draws another start in center field. At this point, it looks as though Puello may have lost his everyday role. He's hitting just .136 with a homer and two RBI over his last eight games.

July 29, 2019 03:20 PM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Sits again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello remains on the bench Monday against Arizona, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Puello sits for the second game in a row after a stretch in which he started 12 straight games. Harold Ramirez slides to center field in his absence, with Curtis Granderson getting the start in left.

July 28, 2019 12:04 PM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Diamondbacks, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Puello started the last 12 games but will take a seat after going 8-for-36 (.222 average) with a 35 percent strikeout rate in that stretch. Yadiel Rivera will start in center field and bat eighth in his place.

July 25, 2019 10:16 AM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Supplies only offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

His eighth-inning shot off Reynaldo Lopez accounted for the game's only runs, and was his first homer for Miami. Puello is slashing only .176/.273/.235 in 25 games since joining the Marlins, but his ability handle center field is keeping him in the lineup until the organization can find a better option.

July 18, 2019 10:12 AM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Another turn in center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello will start in center field and bat eighth Thursday against the Padres, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

After unseating JT Riddle (forward) as the Marlins' center fielder in the previous three contests, Puello now looks like he'll be the undisputed top option at the position moving forward with Miami placing Riddle on the injured list Thursday. Since being acquired from the Angels a month ago, Puello is slashing .184/.286/.204 with a 26.8 percent strikeout rate. He'll likely need to raise his performance within the next week or so to stick around as a full-time player, as the Marlins could call up Lewis Brinson from Triple-A New Orleans if Puello is unable to get the job done.

Marlins' Cesar Puello: Fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello will start in right field and bat second Sunday against the Braves, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Puello has been one of the beneficiaries of Brian Anderson being limited to a bench role for the past week due to an elbow injury that impacts his ability to throw. With Anderson sitting out again in the series finale, Puello will draw a fourth consecutive start in the outfield. Puello, who has gone 6-for-35 (.171 average) since being acquired from the Angels on June 19, will likely be headed back to a fourth-outfielder role in the second half with Anderson likely to be healthy by that point.

June 29, 2019 01:28 PM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Working as reserve again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies, according to Andre Fernandez of The Athletic.

Puello started four straight games after being acquired by the Marlins on June 19, but he will be held out Friday for the third time in four games.

June 27, 2019 02:56 PM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Heads to bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello is not in Thursday's lineup against the Nationals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Puello is hitting just .167 with a .485 OPS and 27.3 strikeout rate since joining the Marlins (six games), so he'll head to the bench for the second time in three games as JT Riddle picks up another start in the outfield in his stead.

June 26, 2019 12:08 PM
Marlins' Cesar Puello: Day off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puello is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Puello had started four games in a row in right field, going 3-for-14 at the plate. He could see his role reduced now that Neil Walker (quadriceps) is back from injury. Walker should occupy the first base spot on most days, pushing Garrett Cooper out to right field. That's the arrangement the Marlins will go with Tuesday.
