Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Focused on staying healthy in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cespedes has been working hard in the offseason to strengthen his lower body and avoid a repeat of the quad injury that limited him in the second half of 2016, The NY Post reports. "I've really been concentrating on my legs so I can work from the ground up,'' Cespedes said earlier this week. "I am the only one who knew how much pain I was in [last season]. I was trying to mask it, trying to play through it and do as much as I could to help the team. After the games I was icing to try to be on the field as much as I could.''

The Mets made a $110 million commitment to Cespedes this offseason, and the 31-year-old has responded in kind by reporting early to the team's spring training complex and fully participating in the regimen that strength and conditioning coach Mike Barwis has laid out for him. Cespedes has posted back-to-back campaigns with more than 30 home runs and a batting average of .280 or better, and after bouncing through four organizations in his first four MLB seasons, he's found a home in New York. A career year in 2017 could be in the offing now that his maturity level seems to have caught up to his physical tools.

Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Back to Mets on four-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cespedes signed a four-year, $110 million deal with the Mets on Tuesday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

This is a luxury signing for the Mets, as they once again have a bit of a logjam in the outfield, but Cespedes should have no problem getting something close to everyday at-bats. Over the past two seasons he has settled in as a good bet for a batting average north of .275 with 30-plus home runs and the potential for over 100 runs and RBI if he stays healthy. That caveat is particularly relevant after last season, as a quadriceps issue limited him to 132 games and severely impacted his ability to run and play the field when he was in the lineup in the second half. The Mets will likely give him a handful of strategic off days in 2017, given their depth and the concerns about aggravating his quad, but he still makes for a low-end OF1 in most formats.

Yoenis Cespedes: Declines qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cespedes rejected the Mets' one-year, $17.2 million dollar qualifying offer Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

This news comes as no surprise, as Cespedes is one of the premier right-handed bats to grace the free agent market this offseason. The 31-year-old outfielder will likely command a high price, although some of his suitors may be deterred by the draft pick that must be sacrificed in order to sign him.

Yoenis Cespedes: Receives qualifying offer from Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cespedes received a qualifying offer from the Mets on Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Cespedes already opted out of the last two years of his contract with New York, so there's little to no chance that he'll accept this offer either. The 31-year-old will likely command a high price on the free agent market, although the draft pick that needs to be sacrificed in order to add him certainly doesn't add to his value.

Yoenis Cespedes: Officially opts out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Cespedes officially opted out of the final two years and $47.5 million remaining on his contract with the Mets on Saturday, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

In an injury-shortened 2016 campaign, Cespedes tallied 31 home runs and 86 RBI while hitting .280 across 132 games. The 31-year-old figures to garner a big pay day on the open market, as he will no doubt be one of the top outfield options available.
