Latest Update Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said the team is not looking to trade Yoenis Cespedes Sat Nov, 08, 09:31 PM
Excels as a run producer. Is a tremendous athlete who can play great defense in the outfield, with a plus arm. Also boasts a great power/speed package at the dish.
Flaws: : Needs to make more adjustments to big-league pitchers in order to become a consistent threat with the stick, since he lacks patience at the plate.
With every rumor, they say there's an ounce of truth, but we tend to believe Cherington that there's nothing to the recent reports that the Sox are interesting in dealing Cespedes. The Cuban slugger posted a .269/.296/.423 slash line with five home and 33 RBI in 201 at-bats after being traded by the A's. His OBP, unfortunately sat just under .300 but he posted a .163 ISO during that time. A full season in hitter-friendly Fenway Park should be a nice boost for his overall totals in 2015.Analyst: Howard Bender
If Boston were to keep him, Cespedes would most likely slot somewhere into the middle of the Boston line up. Cespedes hit .260 with 22 home runs, and 100 RBIs in 2014. It was the first time in his career he reached 100 RBIs in a single season.Analyst: Colby Conway
Cespedes has made himself comfortable since being dealt to the Red Sox as he is now slashing .274/.301/.431 with five home runs and 33 RBI over is last 197 at-bats. As he gets more used to his new surroundings we can only expect his production to increase from here, making him a solid fantasy option at the age of 28. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Obviously Cespedes is out for the rest of the game, but he will be back in the lineup on Wednesday.Analyst: David Kerr
