Yoenis Céspedes#52, LF, NY Mets
- October 18, 1985
- Birth Place:
- Campechuela, Cuba
— Player Notes
Advice: The Mets whiffed on Carlos Gomez and Jay Bruce but found the bat they were looking for in Cespedes. He'll patrol left field in New York and should provide a much-needed jolt to the Mets' lineup.Fri, Jul 31 Rotoworld
Advice: The Tigers will receive pitching prospects Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa in return, but the Mets didn't blink in refusing to offer Zack Wheeler. Detroit pretty much had to deal Cespedes, as they're in seller mode and can't make him a qualifying offer after the season. He'll provide some much-needed thump to the Mets' lineup.

Advice: The Mets had a deal in place for Carlos Gomez and were close on Jay Bruce, only to see both potential trades fall apart. It appears they've moved their focus to Cespedes as they seek some offensive help. It's unclear at this point what the Mets would have to give up.

Advice: The Angels have already traded for three different outfielder/designated hitter types, but Cespedes would be a much bigger bat than all of them. It's unclear how serious the discussions are at this point. The Mets have also been linked to Cespedes.

Advice: Talks with the Reds about Jay Bruce appear to be losing steam, so the Mets are looking at other outfielders. Rosenthal notes that Cespedes is "one of their many options," as they've also been connected to Will Venable and Rajai Davis. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says that the Nationals "could be a possibility" for Cespedes.

Advice: The Tigers moved David Price and Joakim Soria, so there's no reason to stop now. Since Cespedes won't even bring back a pick this winter, he's almost certainly a goner. And he'll probably have less fantasy value wherever he ends up. Cespedes is batting .293 with 18 homers, 62 runs scored and 61 RBI this season.Thu, Jul 30 Rotoworld
Advice: The Orioles are just one game back for a Wild Card spot and could really use a bat, but they might not have enough in their farm system to outbid other contenders. They also might not be willing to give a top prospect for a rental.

Advice: Morosi cautions that there is only minimal interest from the Mets at this time. With the team reportedly closing in on a deal for an outfielder, there should be a resolution soon.

Advice: Cespedes hit a solo home run off of Jake Odorizzi in the fourth inning to create a 1-1 tie. He's gone deep in back-to-back games and seven times in 19 games since July 6, giving him 17 on the year with 58 RBI and a .289/.321/.500. The Tigers are four games under .500 with less than three days remaining until the trade deadline. Cespedes remains a candidate to be moved in a trade.Tue, Jul 28 Rotoworld
Advice: Cespedes got the Tigers on the board with a solo home run off of Nate Karns in the seventh inning to make it 3-1, then added an RBI single in the eighth. The Tigers weren't doing much else offensively. Cespedes has put together a fine season, batting .287/.319/.492 with 16 home runs and 57 RBI. He could be wearing a new uniform by Saturday.Mon, Jul 27 Rotoworld
