Latest Update Cespedes is not in the Red Sox lineup on Thursday. Thu Sep, 18, 03:02 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.
Cespedes went 1-for-7 through the first two games against the Pirates, so he'll get the day off Thursday in favor of Daniel Nava.Analyst: Howard Bender
Since joining the Red Sox at the trade deadline, Cespedes is slashing .295/.312/.477 with four home runs, 27 RBI and 20 runs scored over 132 at-bats. He has really adapted well to both his new team and new home ballpark, making 2014 his third straight season of 20-plus home runs and he should continue to get the job done for his fantasy owners down the stretch with some good matchups to finish out the regular season.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Cespedes now has two stolen bases this season as a Red Sock and three as an Athletic. He iwll probably never steal 16 bases in a season again like he did as a rookie, but if the Red Sox give him the green light he could reach double-digits next season.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Cespedes fell a home run shy of the cycle on Tuesday night, but still finished with a solid line. He currently sits at 21 home runs and 91 RBIs and should have no problem reaching 100 RBIs for the first time in his career.Analyst: David Kerr
