Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes underwent surgery to remove bone calcification from his left heel on Friday, the team announced. Dr. Robert Anderson performed the procedure down in Charlotte, N.C.
Cespedes' surgery was originally supposed to occur on Oct. 23, but a scheduling conflict pushed it back a couple days. Despite the delay, the 32-year-old veteran is still expected to resume baseball activities in late February or early March.
This was the second heel surgery for Cespedes, as Dr. Anderson performed the same surgery back on Aug. 2. Back in September, he said he felt "very good" and "even better than I was expecting" following the surgery.
Cespedes was limited to 38 games this season, as other injuries like a right hip flexor strain held him out. He hit .262/.325/.496 with nine home runs and 29 RBI over that span.
