Yoenis Cespedes fractures ankles in ranch accident
A bad season continues to get worse for the New York Mets.
The team announced Monday that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes fractured his ankles in an accident on his ranch, likely ending his season.
Cespedes was in an accident on his ranch and fractured his ankles. He is being evaluated in NYC.

Cespedes was already out after surgery on both his heels last July, and it was entirely possible that he wouldn’t have played in 2019 anyway. The double ankle fracture should more or less obliterate any chances of a return.
The Mets currently sit at 20-25, and a season with high expectations from within the organization quickly looks to be going south. This is only going to make the situation look more hopeless.
