Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:21:22 -0700

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes to avoid DL

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 05:30:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (wrist) was diagnosed with a mild sprain of his left wrist, but he should avoid the disabled list. He received a cortisone injection that will likely sideline him a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: Alejandro De Aza could fill in for Cespedes the next couple of days, but he's hitting just .165 this season. De Aza has minimal fantasy appeal, but Cespedes remains a low-end OF1.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes to visit doctor

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 18:02:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (hand, wrist) did not travel with the club for their upcoming series against the Atlanta Braves. He will be examined by team orthopedist Dr. David Altchek.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes had been playing well prior to getting injured, having reached base in five of his last six plate appearances before exiting Wednesday's game in the sixth inning due to discomfort in his left wrist. He is batting .290 with 18 homers and 44 RBI through 65 games and should remain stashed in all formats. If Cespedes is forced to miss multiple games, expect Alejandro De Aza to see the bulk of the playing time in center field.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes mired in slump

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 12:56:05 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes has an active 3-for-35 slump entering the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: A streaky hitter to begin with, Cespedes has been hindered by his own injuries and those of his teammates, as the New York lineup is missing some key supporting pieces. Cespedes still sits with a respectable 32 runs, 15 home runs, 37 RBI and .266/.340/.571 slash line for the season, though. Don't overreact to his current skid, and expect Cespedes to kick the funk sooner than later.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes back in lineup

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:57:20 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (hip) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese Monday, June 6.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes appears healthy, but he's hitting just .107 (3-for-28) with no home runs, one RBI and 11 strikeouts since May 25. He's known as a streaky hitter but can bust out at any moment and should be returned to starting lineups in seasonal leagues immediately. Those in daily games should have more hesitation paying a steep price for him, though.
