Yoenis Cespedes reportedly restarting treatment program after suffering setback

Yoenis Cespedes Mets

As if the news could not get any worse for the New York Mets this season, slugger Yoenis Cespedes may not be returning to the lineup any time soon.

Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reported on Sunday that Cespedes, who exited Saturday’s minor-league rehab game with renewed quad tightness, suffered a setback and is returning to Florida to restart his treatment program. DiComo adds there are now no indications of when the former All-Star might be back.

Cespedes, 32, first suffered the injury on May 6 but played through it for a few days before going on the disabled list on May 16. For his part, Mets manager Mickey Callaway offered a curious explanation as to why the team handled Cespedes’ situation the way they did, especially considering his history of quad issues.
