Tuesday in AA: Puello Leaves Early (Hand/Wrist)

AA: Binghamton Mets 6, Trenton Thunder (NYY) 5 

Puello Sliding into ThirdWe’ll start with the most important thing: Cesar Puello was 2-for-4 with a strikeout, but left this one early after getting caught stealing. According to tweets of those at the game, he hurt his hand/wrist on  the play. The 22-year old Puello is up to .330/.403/.604, #1 in the Eastern League in slugging, and #2 in OPS and homers and #3 in batting average.

2B Danny Muno popped a three-run homer, his third longball of the season. The 24-year-old is hitting just .224/.353/.348 in 60 games with 40 walks and 47 strikeouts. His offensive profile is all approach and few hits.

Erik Goeddel survived 10 baserunners (8 H, 2 BB, 1 HR) in his six innings to lower his ERA to 4.27 and pick up his sixth win. Maybe there’s a middle reliever in here, but I don’t see a MLB starter based on his up-and-down season in AA.
