By Associated Press Yoenis Cespedes spent about a week trying to play through his latest lower-body injury. Now, he and the New York Mets are opting to play it safe.
The Mets placed Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained right hip flexor, retroactive to Monday. It will be Cespedes’ fourth DL stint for a leg injury in the past three seasons, despite an offseason focus on better caring for his lower half. Cespedes had an MRI exam Tuesday, which revealed the strain.
