    Puello hitting .200/.250/.250 in winter ball? Until he shows he can hit without juice, he's further behind guys like Plawecki who is shooting up the charts.

    I like Plawecki, but this isn't close for me. Puello has much better upside.

    Puello with .310 OBP ceiling has no upside. He shouldn't even be in this discussion. He's not a major league caliber talent, period. He's a Jordany Valdespin level player and that's about it.

    He'll probably do that as a rookie. His upside would be .340-.350 OBP imo with potential plus power and defense.

    Puello is going to get hit 20-25 times a season which will boost his OBP even with his walk rate around 4%. If that improves, all of a sudden he'll be an even greater OBP threat. He just has to keep his K% around 25% or so.

    Welcome to the forum, NYmets0190. Plawecki seems to be your guy(voted in the #6 prospect thread), but you haven't made a post yet lol.

    LOL.. In your dream will he reach that OBP level. He doesn't have the talent. And without juice he doesn't have the power.

    Puello is a Pipe Dream.

    He's averaged 30 HBP per season in his minor league career. His FB% has increased every season which has lead to more power production. Even with PEDs, you can't hit homers pounding the ball into the ground.

    Stop. Nothing says he'll be anything more than a .310 OBP guy.. Even with an above average number of HBP. You're just hoping and praying at this point for him to be something. The talent is not there, sorry.

    He was an all tools prospect before Biogenesis ever happened.

    How does he not have the talent?

    It's one thing to not believe in what he may do in the majors. But he has tons of talent.

    He does not have enough on base skill to be a major leaguer period. He did not have a tremendous power tool before Biogenesis. He had an okay one. Until he hits again, he's a C-/D+ prospect at best.

    So you are attributing all of his 2013 output to Biogenesis.

    The clinic closed in December, 2012. He continued to rake all through 2013.

    Maybe he has other sources of PEDs, but it's hard to attribute all of his 2013 output just to Biogenesis.

    Puello's career minor league slash line in close to 2,000 PA .287/.357/.420, clearly he has been a one year steroid induced wonder.

    Remove last year (Juice & Vegas pumped up numbers) and what are is his career minor league slash line?

    .320 OBP over nearly 700 ABs in St. Lucie. Horrible. Jordany Valdespin part 2. No thanks.
