Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) placed on 10-day disabled list

The Mets placed Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list on Friday night with a strained right hamstring.

Fantasy Impact

Sandy Alderson stated that the strain is the same severity as the one that sidelined Cespedes for six weeks earlier this season, so it's possible that we've seen the last of the slugger this season. Cespedes' chronic leg injuries cast some doubt into his long-term keeper appeal, but hopefully, he'll find a new training regimen in the offseason.

Yoenis Cespedes' home run not enough for the New York Mets

Cespedes provided the offense for the Mets, as he finished 2-for-3 with a double, a homerun and two walks. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact

He's been in a groove for the past week, hitting .409 with one home run. Michael Conforto left the game with a dislocated shoulder, leaving Cespedes as the lone power hitting veteran in the lineup. This won't help his fantasy prospects going forward, as teams could opt to pitch around him.

Yoenis Cespedes homers in 6-4 loss

Cespedes ended the weekend 2-for-4 with a home run. Overall, he had two runs scored, two RBIs and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes also had a bad error, but fortunately for his fantasy owners, fielding doesn't count in fantasy. With so many veterans gone from the New York Mets, he remains their best hitter. He now has 16 home runs for the season.

Yoenis Cespedes scores a run in New York Mets win

Cespedes finished 1-for-3 with a run scored and a walk.

Fantasy Impact

With Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce out of the lineup, Cespedes has less protection around him. He does have Michael Conforto hitting cleanup, but pitchers could now pitch around him going forward. This trend could have contributed to his paltry .222 batting average for the past seven days. He's still worth playing in DFS, especially against left handed pitchers.

Yoenis Cespedes homers again

Cespedes provided the lone run for the New York Mets in their 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Cespedes finished 1-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes is on a three-game hit streak and a two-game homer streak. He will look to stay hot against Philadelphia Phillies starter Zach Eflin on Sunday. He won't have a platoon advantage, but he's worth a look in DFS.
