The New York Mets acquired outfielder Yoenis Cesedes from the Detroit Tigers on Friday, according to FOX Sports. The Mets sent pitching prospects Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa to the Tigers in exchange for Cespedes, who is slated to become a free agent after the season. Cespedes entered Friday hitting .293 with 18 home runs, 61 RBI and 62 runs scored in 102 games. He will play for his third team in three years following the deal, though he has hit at least 22 home runs and driven in at least 80 runs in each of his first three seasons in the majors. The Mets tried and failed to acquire outfielder Carlos Gomez from the Milwaukee Brewers, as Gomez eventually was dealt to the Houston Astros. They were also rumored to be involved with the Cincinnati Reds for Jay Bruce, before eventually acquiring Cespedes.

Cespedes went 3-for-5 Saturday with a double, a run scored and an RBI.

Cespedes reached base all four times Monday against Cleveland, as he homered, doubled, singled, was hit by a pitch, scored twice, and knocked in three runs.

Cespedes hit his first home run since June 11, his 10th of the season, putting him in double digits for the fourth time in as many seasons. Cespedes's .308 batting average, however, would be a career high by a whopping 41 points. His .358 BABIP will probably drop a bit, but he's a doubles machine (21). Some line drives might start finding mitts, but some of those doubles might turn into home runs, too. Either way, Cespedes is on his way to posting his best season since his rookie year in 2012.

Cespedes provided all the Tigers' offense with a three-run homer Wednesday in a loss to the Cubs. He also drew a walk.

Cespedes' power has come in fits and starts this year, but with nine homers through 60 games, he's on pace for a total in the mid-20s, which is pretty typical for him. The Cuban outfielder's been hot since the calendar turned to June, having gone 12-for-27 (.444) with a pair of homers through eight games.
