Yoenis Cespedes

Yoenis Cespedes is a professional baseball outfielder who is currently playing for the New York Mets of Major League Baseball (MLB). He is nicknamed as "La Potencia". He has become one of the top outfielders and players in the sport. For the Oakland Athletics, he made MLB debut on 28th March 2012. Moreover, he has also played for Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers. Additionally, he played eight seasons until 2010 for the Alazanes de Granma in the Cuban National Series where he batted .319, .404 on-base percentage (OBP), .565 slugging percentage (SLG), 169 home runs and 557 runs batted in (RBI) over 528 games. He has also won the Home Run Derby twice in 2013 and 2015 and he is a two-time All-Star as well. He was also a member of the Cuban national team, winning gold medals in three tournaments. His turbulent tenure with the Mets all but ended Sunday when he left the team without warning-and hours later communicated that he was opting out of the rest of the 2020 season. Mets released a statement saying Cespedes did not show up to the ballpark and they were unable to contact him. It ended after a 4-0 loss to the Braves when general manager Brodie Van Wagenen revealed that Cespedes representatives told the Mets he was done for the year due to concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Cespedes also was facing the possibility of diminished playing time as he struggled at the plate, playing regularly for the first time in more than two years. His contract included lots of bonuses attached mostly to at-bat totals.
