Today, the Mets announced that Yoenis Cespedes is dealing with a sore right wrist and is day to day. Cespedes tweaked the wrist swinging a bat a week ago, in last Tuesday’s spring training game against the Houston Astros.
Cespedes briefly spoke to the media this morning, saying how he has played three games since he first felt the discomfort, and had an x-ray this morning on the wrist. Because the interview was cut off after 90 seconds, additional details were not initially provided. Later in the day, the results of the x-ray were made public; thankfully, they came back negative.
This is not the first minor ailment for Cespedes this spring. In late February, he had a sore shoulder that he played down to the press as well. The Mets seem to be more forthcoming about their injuries this spring, something our friend Ted Berg thinks is a good thing.
