2020 Fantasy Outlook
In the fall of 2018, Cespedes underwent a pair of heel surgeries with the expectation of returning to the Mets after the All-Star break. Just as he was beginning to start light running, Cespedes fell at his ranch, fracturing his right ankle in multiple places and requiring season-ending surgery. Cespedes has played in just 109 games the past three seasons. He has one year remaining on his contract with the Mets, but his prognosis is unclear. It's a good sign he was able to take batting practice in November, but it's not a guarantee he'll play in 2020, let alone be ready for the spring. The best approach is to monitor reports and if it appears Cespedes will be back, take nothing more than a reserve flier in leagues allowing FAAB or waiver pickups. He's too much of a risk in draft and hold, no matter how enticing. Read Past Outlooks
