Cespedes (undisclosed), along with Merandy Gonzalez, was traded to the Marlins on Friday in exchange for A.J. Ramos.
The 19-year-old has been dealing with an undisclosed injury this season at Low-A Columbia, where he has appeared in just five games. Cespedes will provide simple organizational depth for the Marlins as he continues to recover from his unknown ailment and is likely bound for Low-A Greensboro once the team deems him healthy again. He impressed over 56 games with the Mets' Rookie-level Kingsport affiliate last season, batting .322 with 16 RBI.
Cespedes is on the 7-day DL at Low-A Columbia with an undisclosed injury.
He was only recently assigned to Columbia on May 10 after finishing the 2016 season in the Appalachian League. The early returns in his first week in the Sally League were promising, as he was hitting .417 with a double and three strikeouts in 12 at-bats prior to the injury.
