Yoenis Cespedes takes break from rehab, still has no timetable
The New York Mets are still waiting to see when Yoenis Cespedes will return from his hip injury.
Cespedes took a break from rehab over the weekend, according to Tim Healey of Newsday, and will resume activities on Monday. Those activities are physical therapy, as the outfielder still isn’t hitting or throwing and has no timetable to begin doing so again.
Cespedes hasn’t played since May 16, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be back anytime soon.
The slugging outfielder restarted his treatment plan last week, and doesn’t appear to be rushing back. It doesn’t make sense to — he’s already reaggravated the injury once, and the Mets no longer look like they stand much chance of contending for a playoff spot this season. The focus instead will be on getting Cespedes fully healthy.
