Former New York Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes did not take an at-bat in the course of the 2019 MLB season partially due to what the New York Put up reported to be a fractured ankle linked with an encounter with a wild boar at his Florida ranch, and he appeared in solely eight video games in the course of the pandemic-shortened 2020 marketing campaign earlier than he opted out with out warning.
With the Mets going through quite a few harm setbacks in the course of the first half of the present season, not less than any person throughout the group thought-about a reunion involving the 35-year-old.
The Put up’s Ken Davidoff reported forward of Tuesday’s All-Star Sport that the Mets reached out to Cespedes’ representatives, however the talks went nowhere as a result of the veteran does not need to put pen to paper on solely a minor-league deal. Cespedes hasn’t performed since he hit .161 with two house runs and 4 RBI final summer time, however he held a showcase for groups in Florida this previous March and reportedly impressed some attendees.
The Mets entered the All-Star break in first place within the Nationwide League East with a 47-40 report and can be hoping to keep away from any related “break glass in case of emergency” conditions over the following a number of months and thru the autumn.
