The New York Mets have no shot at making the playoffs this season. They’re looking to be sellers at the deadline instead of buyers.
One of their sluggers has now went down for the season. Yoenis Céspedes will have season-ending heel surgery.
It’s expected to take at least eight-to-ten months to heal. According to the team, Céspedes has been dealing with this issue for the past 15-years.
There’s a good chance that this injury could cause him to miss some of the 2019 season.
The 32-year-old Céspedes signed a four-year, $110 million deal with the Mets following the 2016 season. Since signing this massive deal, he has played in less than half of the team’s games.
He missed time last season with a hamstring and quad injury. Then, this season, he missed 9 1/2 weeks with a hip flexor strain.
Céspedes has just returned to the lineup on Friday against the New York Yankees. In that game, he had a home fun and was their designated hitter.
He said after he game that he was playing with calcification in both heels. Mets manager Mickey Callaway said on Saturday that Céspedes misspoke and that he did not know about the slugger’s comments.
Céspedes met with team physician Dr. David Altchek and a foot specialist on Monday. The following day, on Tuesday, the slugger was placed on the disabled list once again.
