Player Notes
Yoenis Cespedes had a two-run single and a grand slam in the third inning Friday as the Mets thrashed the Giants 13-1.

Advice: It was his first start in a week and he announced his return to the lineup with authority. His grand slam was the exclamation point on a team record 12-run third inning for New York. The six RBI frame from Cespedes also set a team record. The 30-year-old has homered in four out of his last five games and is batting .313/.380/.719 with seven home runs and 23 RBI overall.

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Advice: It's his first start in a week due to a bruised thigh, although he had a big pinch-hit homer on Wednesday. Cespedes is batting .300/.373/.683 with six homers and 17 RBI this month.

The Mets expect Yoenis Cespedes (leg) to return to the lineup for this weekend's series with the Giants.

Advice: Cespedes won't play in Wednesday's contest against the Reds and the Mets have an off day on Thursday, making Friday the date to circle on the calendar for his return. A bruise on the right thigh has been bothering the slugger for the last few weeks. He initially suffered the injury while diving for a ball earlier in April.

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is out of the Mets' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Reds.

Advice: Cespedes delivered a pinch-hit three-run homer in Tuesday's dramatic win over Cincinnati and looked plenty healthy doing it, but Mets manager Terry Collins will get his $27.5 million outfielder another day of rest. He's been bothered by a nagging bruise on his right thigh for the last few weeks. Michael Conforto is in left field, Juan Lagares is in center field, and Alejandro De Aza is in right field on Wednesday night against Reds right-hander Jon Moscot.

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) didn't start but still delivered the big blow for the Mets on Tuesday, swatting a pinch-hit, three-run homer in a win over the Reds.

Advice: Out of the lineup for a fourth straight game due to a sore right thigh, Cespedes ripped the first Brandon Finnegan offering he saw in the seventh inning to tie things up. The Mets went ahead three batters later after a Curtis Granderson triple and David Wright single. Cespedes is now hitting .300/.373/.683 with six homers and 17 RBI on the year and should be back in the lineup Wednesday.

Tue, Apr 26 Rotoworld
Mets manager Terry Collins said there's a "good chance" Yoenis Cespedes (leg) will return Wednesday.

Advice: And he could be available to come off the bench on Tuesday night. Cespedes is out of the Mets' starting lineup for the fourth straight game because of a lingering thigh bruise, but it's nothing overly serious. Collins doesn't want to risk anything here in April with his $27.5 million outfielder.

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Reds.

Advice: It's his fourth straight absence. The Mets will again go with Michael Conforto in left with Juan Lagares handling center field. Cespedes reportedly had "a lot" of fluid drained from his right leg on Monday. The Mets are still calling him day-to-day, but if Cespedes doesn't turn a corner soon, he could be placed on the disabled list.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Yoenis Cespedes had "a lot" of fluid drained from his ailing right leg on Monday.

Advice: Cespedes is out of the lineup for the third straight game Monday due to a nagging bruise on his right thigh. The Mets continue to call him day-to-day for now, but fantasy owners might want to have a backup plan in mind for this week.

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is out of the Mets' starting lineup again on Monday versus the Reds.

Advice: It's his third day off. Cespedes bruised his right leg a few weeks ago while diving into the stands after a foul ball and then aggravated it on a hard slide into second base this past Friday night. He was supposed to have a meeting with team doctors Monday in New York. Alejandro De Aza is in center field and batting seventh against Reds right-hander Raisel Iglesias.
