Yoenis Cespedes did not show up for the Mets game against the Braves


Yoenis Cespedes has become AWOL.The Mets designated outfielder / hitter did not show up to the baseball stadium for Sunday’s game against the Braves and did not contact anyone, the team said. There is a belief within the Mets organization that Cespedes is safe.

“He has not contacted management to explain his absence,” CEO Brodie Van Wagenen said in a statement. “Our attempts to contact him failed.”

During his pre-match Zoom press conference, manager Luis Rojas suggested Cespedes would not be in the roster, but gave no indication that anything was out of the ordinary. Cespedes, playing for the first time in two years after a string of injuries, has struggled so far, batting .161 with two homers, four runs batted in and 15 strikeouts in 31 batting. The 34-year-old has yet to appear on the pitch in the team’s first nine games.
