Yoenis Cespedes playing despite right heel issue
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was noticeably limping in the clubhouse prior to Monday's game at Minnesota, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Cespedes acknowledged he's dealing with some discomfort in his right heel, but it was not enough to keep him from starting Monday.

"When I have to run, I can run. It's fine," he said.

Yoenis Cespedes clubs first home run Sunday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes hit his first home run of the season Sunday against the Mariners. 

Cespedes got off to a slow start this year, but may have turned a corner in the eighth inning. Cespedes took the first pitch thrown by Yoervis Medina, and took it out to center field for a solo home run.

Cespedes finished the game 1 for 3, with one run scored and one RBI. He also managed to draw a walk in a previous plate appearance.

Brandon Moss: Yoenis Cespedes working hard to end slump
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Struggling Athletics slugger Yoenis Cespedes received words of encouragement Wednesday from teammate Brandon Moss, who sees the outfielder working to emerge from a slump that has dragged his spring batting average down to a troubling .128.

"If he was up there raking and was hitting .128, and really feeling good at the plate, that would be one thing," Moss told the Bay Area News Group. "But he's up there working on things, trying to shorten his swing."

Cespedes has regressed since a fine rookie season in 2012. He experienced significant drops in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage and his problems have followed him to spring training.

Yoenis Cespedes working with hitting coach
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is working with hitting coach Chili Davis, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Cespedes is working to make more contact this season, which should help raise his average. He's planning to shorten his swing, but doesn't think it will impact his power output. Cespedes also reported to camp weighing 225 pounds. The weight listed on the team program has Cespedes at 210. He's hoping the new approach will make him more consistent at the plate.

Cespedes hit .240/.294/.442 in 529 at-bats last year.

Yoenis Cespedes: I want to end my career in Oakland
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Usually quiet Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has spoken up about his desire to sign a contract extension that would keep him in Oakland beyond 2015, when his four-year deal expires.

Cespedes must prove his worth to remain with the team long-term. His batting average dropped markedly to .240 in 2013, though his power numbers remained steady with 26 home runs and 80 RBI. He has been involved in trade rumors during the offseason.

"What I would like is to finish my four years here in Oakland and maybe get an extension because this is the team that gave me the opportunity to play here, and I will not forget that," he told MLB.com.
