Yoenis Cespedes casually mentions that he might need major surgery

The Mets started off the second half on a high note by beating the Yankees. Yoenis Cespedes played a big factor in his return to action after missing what felt like an eternity, going 2-for-4 with a home run. This is the start of a fun final stretch run, right?!? 

Wrong. Oh, so wrong.

After the game, Cespedes decided to casually drop a bombshell that his heels, yes both of them, has apparently been the root cause of his nagging injuries. So, what does that mean exactly? Just surgery that would put him out 8-10 months. No biggie.

Wait, what?!? I mean seriously, what are we doing here, Mets? How do we let our cornerstone player back in the lineup in a lost season when there’s even a remote chance he needs to go under the knife and miss that kind of time?

If Yo were to get this surgery on August 1 that would put him on schedule to return sometime around the beginning of next season. We all know the Mets aren’t that lucky to come away on the short side of the recovery process, but you get my drift. If he were to wait another few months then you’re going to start hearing the 2019 All-Star break as a goal recovery time. 

That just isn’t acceptable.

To me, there’s clearly a disconnect occurring between Yo and team brass. There were very little updates throughout his rehab process and no one ever seemed to know what he was doing. Cespedes also let it be known last night that he didn’t appreciate some stuff he saw on social media about people questioning the work he was putting in. Well yeah, Yo, what are we supposed to do other than speculate when literally no one knows what you’re up to?

There’s no question that the Mets are a different team with Cespedes in the lineup. Friday night was a reminder of that. While watching him down the stretch would certainly improve the product on the field, it’s just not worth it. Shut. Him. Down.

Get whatever surgeries need to be done and get them done ASAP, Yo.
