Yoenis Cespedes reportedly leaning towards season-ending surgery
The Yoenis Cespedes situation is quickly going from bad to worse.
Mike Puma of the New York Post reported on Tuesday that the New York Mets slugger will be going on the disabled list and is leaning towards having season-ending surgery.
The 32-year-old Cespedes, who has been bothered by hip, quad, and foot issues this year, returned to the Mets lineup on Friday after missing over two months of action. While he did homer in his first game back, he has not played since and had to see a foot specialist after an apparent flare-up.
Cespedes is still owed nearly $60 million over the next two seasons despite only appearing in a total of 119 games over the last two seasons. He was previously said to be considering the possibility of surgery, but such a procedure would have a very lengthy recovery time.
