Yoenis Cespedes (ankle, heel) running to first base at full speed

Yoenis Cespedes (ankle, heel) has begun running to first base at full speed.

Fantasy Impact

However, he has not yet made turns running at full speed. Cespedes has been hitting regularly in simulated games but being ready for Opening Day seems unlikely right now.

Yoenis Cespedes (ankle, heel) intends to be ready for Opening Day

Yoenis Cespedes (ankle, heel) says he intends to be ready for Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes is running at 85 percent and has yet to be cleared for full participation in drills, so there's no guarantee he'll be ready to start the season. For what it's worth his batting practice performances have been impressive to viewers. We should get a better idea of his Opening Day status in the coming weeks.

Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) practices in outfield

Yoenis Cespedes (ankle, heel) was among a group of Mets tracking flyballs in the outfield Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This is an important step in Cespedes' progression toward returning to full action for the Mets. The veteran slugger has already been running and participating in batting practice sessions this week. Cespedes missed all of 2019 and has not played in more than 81 games since the 2016 season. This is obviously an important spring for the 34-year-old.

Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) participates in Monday's workout

Yoenis Cespedes (heels, ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's workout.

Fantasy Impact

The 34-year-old is a massive question mark this season after missing all of 2019 due to heel and ankle injuries. His batting practice performance was impressive today but it is important to note he was considered a "limited participant".

Yoenis Cespedes reportedly drawing trade interest

Anthony DiComo of reports the Mets have received trade interest for Yoenis Cespedes.

Fantasy Impact

Cespedes and the Mets just restructured his contract after he fell in a hole in his ranch back in May. Instead of earning $29.5 million he will be getting a little less than $10 million in 2020. That makes him a little more attractive on the trade market but it remains unlikely that he gets dealt. The 34-year-old didn't play at all in 2019.
