Yoenis Cespedes (wrist) is back in the lineup Monday, playing left field and hitting second, five days after receiving a cortisone shot.
Cespedes, who got at-bats in a minor league game on Saturday, said late last week that Monday was his expected return date.
He received a cortisone injection in his sore right wrist on Wednesday and was listed as day-to-day. Players ordinarily resume baseball activity two-to-three days after receiving cortisone injections.
The 32-year-old Cespedes, who was scratched from last Tuesday's lineup due to the wrist issue, said he initially hurt it while swinging a bat two Tuesday's ago, and that he notified a team trainer when the issue persisted.
Cespedes missed some time earlier during spring training due to right shoulder soreness he said he deals with every February.
He hit .292/.352/.540 with 17 HR last season as he was limited to 81 games while dealing with hamstring issues.
