He took a step backwards in 2012.

Puello had a tough season last year - injuries side lined him

He needs a bouce back year in 2013

I think he starts in St Lucie again but if plays well should be in AA after May

SAME for Ceciliani but he has had multi-injuries SEASONS

I dont see it.
Maybe injuries are a part of it.
He has awful plate discipline, strikes out a ton and really hasnt hit with much power.
He does steal bases and has a hose in the OF.

Its like Vaughn is doing what Cesar should be doing right now but nobody talks about him

thats bc vaughn has a really long swing, a low average, and finds it hard to make contact

vaughn's CEILING is scott hairston

his floor is never making it past AA

He had a lot buzz after the 2010 season. I think BA ranked him the Mets #3 prospect.

He didn't do very well in 2011 or 2012.

He's probably not much of a prospect at this point.

even more crazy, how the heck is Reese Havens TOP 10!? That guy is like 26 year old still in AA and has done nothing. Struck out 113 in AA in 94 games? Give me a break, that guy isent even top 25 anymore.

I would have thrown in someone like Matz or Robles.

The fact that he is above Fulmer and DD is comical.

They put a lot of emphasis on how high a draft choice a guy was.

That's silly if its the case, especially considering what a crapshoot the draft is. The guy is 26, struggling in AA, and cant stay healthy. Shouldn't even be on that list to begin with let alone top 10.

Yeah I agree. Havens did look good for a short stretch in '11 at Binghamton but got sidetracked again. I don't know what happened last year, but he wasn't the same.

Can't argue with anything you said about Havens, but the Mets have waited a long time for him to get healthy.

He was healthy, for the most part, last year, but struggled in AA. His .215 avg could have been an aberation and he may have a lot of rust due to multiple injuries that caused him to miss alot of development time. The things the Mets probably like are that he's decent defensively, has some pop and despite hitting .215, had a .340 OBP.

Havens is a lot like den Dekker, both are 26 and need to prove they can hit AAA pitching before they can be considered for a ML spot. One way or the other, it'll probably be the last year for both on any prospect top 10 or 20 list.

lagares's future w/ the org depends on if he shows the ability to stay at cf long term

if he does, he can be a starter...otherwise, he is endy chavez w/ a little less range but a little bit better hit tool

either way, the guy is a major leaguer

True, make or break year for both guys.

Havens had an operation to remove a rib which was supposed to be the cause of all his core injuries. Hasn't really showed anything yet but this year should show if he is ever going to be anything. One year post op he should be healthy.
