Analysis: Though his return from a hamstring injury hasn't helped the Mets much in the win column, Cespedes is hitting .382 (13 for 34) with two homers and six RBIs in 11 games since coming off the DL. The slugger is usually a strong fantasy play on the road, where he's homered six times with 13 RBIs in 12 games this season.

Analysis: The homer was Cespedes' second in eight games since returning from his hamstring injury last week, and he's batting .458 (11 for 24) with six RBIs over that span.

Analysis: Cespedes returned over the weekend after missing six weeks with a hamstring strain, then exited Monday's game with the heel problem. He left after five innings Tuesday for what the Mets termed "game situations" with the team losing 9-1 to the Cubs. However, Cespedes sitting out Wednesday could mean the heel is still an issue.
June 14 8:18 AM PT9:18 AM MT10:18 AM CT11:18 AM ET11:18 ET15:18 GMT23:18 8:18 AM MST10:18 AM EST10:48 AM VEN19:18 UAE10:18 AM CT-Yoenis Cespedes went 2 for 2 with a double and an RBI Tuesday as the New York Mets lost to the Chicago Cubs 14-3. He ended the game with a .297 batting average.

Plagued by injuries this season, he said there was nothing to worry about this time. Cespedes said the heel has bothered him for years, and that he expected to play Tuesday night.
Analysis: Cespedes went 1 for 3 before being pulled. On Saturday, Cespedes hit a grand slam at Atlanta in his return from a six-week stint on the disabled list. He had been out with a strained left hamstring, and also had been nagged by trouble with his quadriceps.

Analysis: Cespedes, back from a strained left hamstring, said before the game that he still didn't think he could run at 100 percent. The slugger didn't need to go fast after connecting against Luke Jackson in the ninth inning. Cespedes sent a drive over the left-center field wall and was able to trot slowly enough to soak in the moment and smile at his cheering teammates. He went 2 for 5, including his seventh home run of the season.

Analysis: The slugger will return after playing one game since resuming his minor league injury rehabilitation.

Apr. 11 8:19 PM PT9:19 PM MT10:19 PM CT11:19 PM ET23:19 ET3:19 GMT11:19 8:19 PM MST10:19 PM EST10:49 PM VEN7:19 UAE (+1)10:19 PM CT-Cespedes had his second career three-homer game and drove in five runs Tuesday at Philadelphia.
Analysis: Cespedes also went deep three times at Colorado on Aug. 21, 2015. He had his fourth career four-hit game and his five RBIs came after he knocked in one run in his first seven games.
Apr. 8 9:58 AM PT10:58 AM MT11:58 AM CT12:58 PM ET12:58 ET16:58 GMT0:58 9:58 AM MST11:58 AM EST12:28 PM VEN20:58 UAE11:58 AM CT-Cespedes delivered his first home run of the season, a solo shot in the eighth inning of the Mets' 7-2 loss to Miami on Friday.
Analysis: Though the well-paid slugger is just 3 for 15 with one RBI through the season's first four games, he has hit safely in three straight. Cespedes could be in for a tough night on Saturday, however, as he's 1 for 11 with six strikeouts lifetime against Marlins starter Adam Conley.
