Yoenis Cespedes undergoes surgery, expected to miss rest of season

Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes underwent surgery today and is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The team did not immediately announce what kind of procedure the outfielder underwent.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes had already missed nearly the first two months of the season as he recovered from heel injuries, and it was reported earlier this week that he suffered ankle fractures in an accident on his ranch in Florida. The outfielder is under contract for $29,500,000 with the Mets in 2020.

Yoenis Cespedes reportedly suffers ankle fractures in accident on his ranch

The Mets announced on Monday that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes fractured his ankles during an accident on his ranch in Florida. According to beat writer Tim Healey, he is "in New York to see doctors. The Mets don’t know what this means for him in 2019 and beyond."

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes was already on the injured list and had not played yet this season due to his injured heels, though he had started a running program just a few days ago. We don't yet know the severity of the fractured ankles, but this sounds like an injury that could cost him the rest of the season.

The Mets placed Yoenis Cespedes (heel) on the 10-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes remains confident he'll play this season but there's no guarantee he is able to after undergoing dual heel surgeries last year. The 33-year-old is only worth stashing in the deepest of leagues.

Yoenis Cespedes (heel) believes he will play in 2019

Yoenis Cespedes (heel) firmly believes he will return to the Mets sometime in 2019.

Fantasy Impact

The 33-year-old is even set to begin baseball activities next week. It's a nice development but there's still a decent chance Cespedes misses all of 2019. We won't know what his timetable will be like until he begins ramping up his activities, which makes him an easy fade in fantasy drafts this spring.

Yoenis Cespedes (heel) has no timetable to return

Mets special assistant Omar Minaya says Yoenis Cespees (heel) still has absolutely no clear timetable.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes is trying to work back from surgery on both his heels and might end up missing all of 2019 at this point. Minaya adds that anything Cespedes gives them next year will be great. It doesn't sound good right now. Cespedes won't be worth drafting come March.
