Mets happy to have Yoenis Cespedes back

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) When the Mets and Yoenis Cespedes agreed just after Thanksgiving to a $110 million, four-year contract, Mets fans rejoiced that the Cuban slugger was returning to Citi Field.

"He's a very friendly human being, easily approachable," said pitcher Jerry Blevins, who will play his fifth season with Cespedes. "That's rare for a guy with his talent to kind of have a personality as friendly as that. It would be easy for him to be an unapproachable guy, and I wouldn't hold it against him if he were because there's a lot of expectations on his shoulders. He carries it with pride. He's a fun guy, and I like to say that I know him and call him a friend."

Cespedes' arm strength and home runs bring out the baseball fan in Blevins, who played three years with the 31-year-old outfielder in Oakland.
