2017 was a tough season for the Mets star left fielder. When Yoenis Cespedes was on the field, however, he was productive. Let’s take a closer look at his season.
Cespedes re-signed with the Mets as a free agent in November of 2016 to a four-year deal much to the delight of Mets fans everywhere. Yoenis was coming off of a great 2016 season with the team in which he clobbered 31 homers. The signing was met with universal praise by Mets fans as it was the first time in a while that the organization made it clear they wanted to bring back a major free agent.
Expectations for not only him but the team were sky high. Cespedes was going to be the heart and soul of a lineup and a team that was aiming to reach not only the playoffs for a third straight season but getting back to the World Series. Unfortunately, everything caved in on not only the team but Cespedes as well. With that said, let’s take a look at his 2017 season.
