New York Mets hitting instructor Endy Chavez posted a video on Instagram on Tuesday of outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (heels) taking batting practice. Cespedes hasn't played since July of 2018 due to multiple heel surgeries, and he's due $29.5 million. General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said that he does "not have enough information to predict when he's going to be back." Cespedes has a very intriguing power profile, but his uncertain status due to injury will cause him to go undrafted in most leagues. The Cuban played in only 38 games in 2018 and just 81 games in 2017. He hit .280 with 31 homers and 86 RBI in his last full season in 2016.
New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) continues to rehab from his injuries the past year, and general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said it's "too early to tell" if Cespedes will play in 2020. "I don't have enough information to predict when he's going to be back." He didn't play at all in 2019 and had a combined 119 games the previous two seasons. Cespedes has some intriguing pop with the lumber when he's healthy, but he's become completely unreliable to the Mets and fantasy owners. Until we know more on his rehab condition, he's off the fantasy radar heading into 2020 spring drafts.
New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) underwent surgery on his broken ankle on Thursday, the Mets announced. Cespedes broke his ankle in two places in an accident on his ranch while on the injured list following heel surgery in the offseason. After playing only 38 games last year, 2019 will be a lost season for the former All-Star outfielder. Cespedes can safely be dropped in all formats at this point, and you will want to proceed cautiously in regards to the Mets slugger heading into the 2020 season as well.
