Cespedes (hamstring) likely hasn't progressed through his running program far enough to return to the lineup Tuesday, Justin Tasch of the New York Daily News reports.

The Mets were hoping to get the slugger back Tuesday, but it looks like Cespedes is still at least a couple more days away from returning to action. The 31-year-old sports a .270/.373/.619 slash line on the year, but he's been out since April 27. It's expected that Cespedes will take over for Curtis Granderson in center field when he does rejoin the lineup.
