Athletics | Yoenis Cespedes bothered by sore heel

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 13:51:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes (heel) has been bothered by a right heel bruise, but he stayed in the lineup Monday, April 7. "You may see him limp a little bit, but the training staff doesn't think it's an issue," said manager Bob Melvin. "Sometimes it doesn't bother him at all. Yesterday he didn't have a problem, and then when he went after that ball in the left-center-field gap, he felt it a little bit." Cespedes hit his first home run Sunday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes should be fine, especially since he'll have an off day tomorrow. Keep him in your lineups unless he suffers a setback.
