Yoenis Cespedes leaves Game 4 with a sore left shoulder

Yoenis Cespedes 1 slice

BaronThings have gone so well for the Mets in the National League Championship Series, but they were thrown for a loop when Yoenis Cespedes exited Game 4 in the second inning with a sore left shoulder.

Juan Lagares replaced Cespedes in center field.

Cespedes drew a key walk to prolong the first inning, allowing Lucas Duda to bat and hit a three-run home run. He also struck out in the second inning.

Terry Collins said mid-game Cespedes was having difficulty lifting his shoulder, which led to his removal from the game.

But he said after the game Cespedes received a cortisone injection in his shoulder, and is expected to be fine by the time the World Series begins on October 27.


Oh, dear — what happened??? If the Mets should play again this season, would he be able to return?


Cespedes did indeed golf at Medinah Country Club today…. Hmmmm⁉️👿


Not what we need right now. Hope a week of rest and no golf will put him back in shape.
