Yoenis Cespedes could return to Mets in a week
Yoenis Cespedes may not be away from the New York Mets for too much longer.
The Mets outfielder is set to begin a running program this week and could be ready to return from his hamstring injury in a week.
Newsday’s Marc Carig reported on Monday that Mets assistant GM John Ricco says the running program could take 5-6 days to complete. He also said that Cespedes might only need a brief rehab stint before returning to the team. Manager Terry Collins reportedly said Cespedes could be back in a week.
Cespedes has been out since being placed on the DL April 28. He was off to a strong start to the season, with four doubles and six home runs in 18 games, giving him an OPS just shy of 1.000.
