YOENIS CÉSPEDES OPTS OUT

The Mets may not know where Yoenis Céspedes is, but they know where he won’t be and that is on the baseball field. After going AWOL yesterday, the Mets sent a security team to his room. When they entered, they found that the room was empty.

Céspedes had packed his stuff up and left. They could not contact him until his agent called and told the team that Céspedes would be opting out of the season. Although it is COVID-19 related, Céspedes has previously complained about his playing time, as he thought the Mets were benching him so that he could not meet the requirements for a bonus.
