Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes, who has been out since April 28 due to a strained hamstring, has resumed baseball activity and could return soon, GM Sandy Alderson said Friday.
Cespedes, who is rehabbing in Port St. Lucie, FL, was in New York on Monday to be evaluated to see if there's an underlying issue behind his recurring leg injuries.
"He came out of the test fine," Mets manager Terry Collins said earlier this week, according to Anthony Rieber of Newsday. "He feels he's getting better. He told me today that the leg's really feeling a lot better. I think everything's on the upswing. He had a big smile on his face. He's glad to be back. I just said, 'Look, when you get started, take it easy in the beginning. See how you feel.'"
Cespedes is hitting .270 with a .373 OBP and .619 SLG with six HR, four doubles, and 10 RBI in 18 games this season.
