Cespedes went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Noah Syndergaard and Jeff Samardzija were engaged in a pitchers' duel Sunday, and Cespedes' homer in the seventh inning was the source of the only runs on the night. He is 5-for-13 with three homers, five RBI and three runs scored since returning from a quadriceps injury, and should be part of an improved Mets offense that just got a couple of other key veterans back as well.

Cespedes blasted a pair of home runs Saturday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes returned from his quad injury Friday and notched a hit that evening. He found his stroke Saturday, hitting the two home runs, including a 457-foot shot, and run-scoring double. Cespedes should be in the lineup on left field and bat cleanup daily.

Cespedes (quadriceps) was activated from the DL and is starting in left field Friday against San Francisco, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Cespedes has been brought off the DL and is back in the cleanup spot in Friday's lineup. He'll join an outfield of Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce as the Mets take on Johnny Cueto and the Giants.

Cespedes (quadriceps) will be activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, Matt Ehalt of The Record.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets get some much-needed offensive power back Friday with Cespedes' return from a quad injury. Cespedes had his initial activation date pushed back a day in order for him to play a rehab game earlier in the week. His return will be a boon to a Mets outfield corps that has posted the fourth-worst wOBA from the center field spot over the past two weeks.

Cespedes (quadriceps), who is slated to be activated Friday, went 0-for-3 with a run batted in while serving as the designated hitter during his first rehab game Monday, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes will play left field Tuesday and then join the Mets in San Francisco during their series Friday. Originally, the plan was for Cespedes to join the team Thursday but it looks like that his return will be pushed back a day.

Cespedes (quadriceps) will play in a rehab game Monday and the Mets plan to activate him Thursday, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

EDGE Analysis

This lines up with the earliest the Mets would be able to bring Cespedes off the DL, and he was essentially just resting the quad while the Mets took advantage of an extra roster spot over a 15-day span. The Mets don't have a true center fielder on the roster with Juan Lagares on the DL, but considering Cespedes' quad did not respond well when he was manning center field earlier this year, he'll likely get most of his starts in left down the stretch.

Cespedes (quad) took batting practice Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of the Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets' slugger is continuing to make progress with rehabbing his injured quad, so it appears that he'll be back in action soon after becoming eligible on August 18. Until Cespedes returns, Alejandro De Aza and Brandon Nimmo will likely continue to split time in his outfield spot.

Cespedes (quad) had an MRI on Thursday which revealed no further damage, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes had been dealing with the injury for several weeks but an aggravation during Wednesday's game forced him to the DL. On the bright side, his medical evaluations revealed no structural damage and he should be able to return from the DL once eligible on Aug. 18 pending his rehab goes smoothly.

Manager Terry Collins stated after Wednesday's game that Cespedes (quad) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, James Wagner of the New York Time reports.

EDGE Analysis

After sitting out of the starting lineup the previous three days (he pinch hit Tuesday), Cespedes returned to the starting lineup, going 1-fo-5 on the night. The quad must still be giving him troubles, enough so that he will skip 15 more days at a minimum. Had he not played either of the past two days, the team would be able to backdate the injury, but the soonest he can return now comes Aug. 19 against the Giants. Michael Conforto should see increased playing time in Cespedes' absence.
