Cespedes Leaves Game Four With Sore Left Shoulder
Mets outfield Yoenis Cespedes exited game four of the NLCS in the second inning because of a sore left shoulder on Tuesday night.
Cespedes had just struck in the bat before his exit. On the night, he was 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored. With a lead of 6-0 in the second upon his exit, there was at least a sigh of relief at the time that hopefully the Mets would not need Cespedes' offensive production on the night.
Since being traded to the Mets in the summer, Cespedes has had a tremendous impact on the team. In the post-season this year, Cespedes has gone 9-for-33 with a .273 batting average.
Oddly enough, the hero in the playoffs for the Mets to this point has been Daniel Murphy. Yet in game four, it was Travis d'Arnaud and Lucas Duda with home runs that propelled New York early in the potential series-deciding game.
