Yoenis Cespedes to see foot specialist, get MRI
The excitement over Yoenis Cespedes’ return to the New York Mets’ lineup has already passed.
Cespedes returned for the Mets and homered on Friday in his first action in over two months. But Cespedes promptly was held out of Saturday’s game due to continued lower body problems.
New York Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert reported on Saturday that Cespedes will see a foot specialist and undergo an MRI.
Cespedes will be checked out by a specialist “early in the week.” He will have an MRI. But also possible he could play Sunday night. #Mets

Cespedes still isn’t being ruled out for Sunday despite the issues.
The 32-year-old outfielder has only played in 38 games this season after playing in just 81 games last season. He is considering a heel surgery that has an 8-10 month recovery time.
