Cespedes exits, doubtful to play Sunday

From ESPN - July 16, 2017

Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Saturday's 9-3 home win over the Colorado Rockies with a sore hip, and New York manager Terry Collins said afterward that Cespedes is unlikely to play Sunday.

Cespedes landed hard on his right knee and dislodged a huge divot in left field while trying to make a sliding catch in the sixth inning.

Collins and the team trainer came out to check on Cespedes on the field and decided to remove him from the game.

"I doubt he's going to be in there tomorrow, just as a precaution," Collins said after the game.

Speaking through a translator, Cespedes said he has "a little" discomfort but that the doctor told him "there's nothing serious going on."
