Yoenis Cespedes was involved in a "violent fall" at his ranch in Port St. Lucie over the weekend and sustained right "ankle fractures," according to Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen.
Van Wagenen said that Cespedes is being evaluated at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and they will need more information from doctors before fully understanding the severity of the injury.
The GM added that Cespedes did not fall off a horse, but did fall and step in a hole in which he "twisted and put his leg and foot" in a bad position.
Van Wagenen added he would not get into any further specifics about the accident and how it happened.
Cespedes had been working his way back from dual heel surgeries he had last year and had been doing some running and taking batting practice with hopes to return this season.
