Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes is supposedly the hottest batsman still available on the free-agent market and has lots of teams salivating over his hitting ability, but the word from ESPN is that he may head back (if he hasn't already) to his new homeland, the Dominican Republic, after having met with only one team: the Miami Marlins.
Cespedes, who met with Marlins execs Wednesday and toured the Marlins' new stadium, may have gone back to the D.R. Thursday, the site notes, and his agent, Adam Katz, said "nothing is scheduled for now" with other teams.
"We had a good meeting," Katz said of the visit with the Marlins, ESPN reports. "They made a very impressive presentation. Discussions are ongoing and productive. But there are several other teams in the mix."
