Yoenis Cespedes Could Rejoin The Mets For Subway Series

Published

on

New York Mets slugging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has been sidelined for nearly a month due to a strained right hip, but he may be ready to return this weekend.

According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, Mets manager Mickey Callaway has not ruled out the possibility of Cespedes returning this weekend for the Subway Series against the New York Yankees.

As DiComo reported, Cespedes went through some baseball activities on Wednesday morning prior to the Mets game against the Baltimore Orioles. He has not played since May 13.

The Mets desperately need Cespedes’ bat back in the lineup. They are coming off a two-game series against the Orioles in which they scored just one run in 18 innings. During their current homestand, the Mets have gone 0-6 against the Orioles and Chicago Cubs.

This season, Cespedes is batting .255 with eight home runs and 28 RBIs.

The New York Mets will likely be big sellers at the deadline and it appears that they are shopping starter Noah Syndergaard.

According to Newsday’s Tim Healey, the Mets have discussed Syndergaard with around six teams, adding that there’s “minimal urgency” on the Mets’ part to trade Syndergaard.

Per the report, the Mets would need to be “wowed” in order to move Syndergaard.

Syndergaard, 26, isn’t having the kind of season he is accustomed to, pitching to the tune of a 4.68 ERA, and is posting other career-low numbers.
