Until Wednesday night there hadn't been too much to write about Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes' stint in the Dominican winter league, but the Rhiner Cruz threw him a 97 mph fastball in the sixth inning of Wednesday's game.
What happened then? Watch.
Cespedes finished 1 for 4 on the night and is now 3 for 23 (.130) with six strikeouts, while being hit by a pitch as Aguilas' designated hitter.
There are plenty of questions about Cespedes, but the guy certainly has some power -- and a heck of a bat flip.
The Cubs are thought to be the leader to sign Cespedes, with the Marlins second and the field a distant third.
