Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Out of Sunday's lineup

Cespedes is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Manager Terry Collins had previously announced that Cespedes would be getting Sunday off after starting three straight games from Thursday to Saturday. The timing is a bit unfortunate, as the star left fielder is coming off a monster four-hit game from Saturday's contest. Curtis Granderson will hold down left field in his absence, but Cespedes should be back in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers.
