Yoenis Cespedes, OF, Detroit Tigers:

After going back and forth over whether they would be buyers or sellers, multiple reports indicated that the Tigers decided late on Wednesday afternoon that they would sell.

Cespedes, like Parra, is a free agent after this season, and he has hit .289/.321/.500 with 17 home runs so far this season for Detroit.

There were some whispers last week that the Mets weren’t enamored with Cespedes because of his relatively low OBP, but Cespedes would be a perfect fit for the Mets.

One drawback is that if the Mets acquire Cespedes — or another corner outfielder — they’ll have to either move Curtis Granderson to center field or send Michael Conforto back to the minors.
