Mets | Yoenis Cespedes wants to stay in NY

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:14:23 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes is willing to stay in New York for the long term, although in all likelihood he will be a rental for the Mets in 2015. "This is something I can't control," Cespedes said through an interpreter. "I don't know what the front office is thinking about. But with what I see so far, I would love for everything to work out and stay as a Met for a long, long time, because I like the atmosphere." Cespedes' contract states he must be released by the Mets before free agency begins if he is to work out a long-term extension with them.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has four hits in his first 12 at-bats with the Mets, including four RBI and three doubles. His fantasy value figured to take a slight hit with the move to a more pitcher-friendly environment than Detroit, but it should be minimal. He continues to be a solid daily play almost always.
