Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Held out Sunday

Cespedes (hip) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

Cespedes injured his hip while making a diving attempt for a foul ball Saturday, adding another ailment to his laundry list of injuries this season. As expected, the Mets will take a conservative approach Sunday, holding out Cespedes so he can be further evaluated. Curtis Granderson will start in the outfield spot that Cespedes vacated. Consider him day-to-day, though Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that manager Terry Collins expects him to start Monday's game.
