Yoenis Cespedes LF/CF.. BOS 2 Days

Cespedes is out of the lineup Wednesday at Toronto, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Cespedes has driven in runs in the past five games, and seven of the last nine, as he's seemingly found comfort with the Red Sox. During that stretch, he hit .364 (12-for-33) with one homer, nine RBI, and four runs. He'll hand off left field to Daniel Nava, who is batting fifth in the order.

Cespedes was 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a losing effort against Seattle on Friday night.

After leaving Thursday's game due to a family medical emergency, Cespedes returned to the lineup Friday, and contributed his 21st home run while running his RBI total to 83 on the year. With a stroke well-suited to his new home park, there is a chance he could enjoy a strong stretch run despite the Red Sox falling out of contention.

Cespedes (personal) is back in Boston's lineup Friday against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners, the Providence Journal's Tim Britton reports.

He left Thursday's game because of a family medical emergency, but the personal issue won't force Cespedes to miss any further time. He has slashed just .200/.250/.233 in 30 career at-bats against Hernandez, with just one extra-base hit and 10 strikeouts, so it may be wise to keep the slumping outfielder on the bench in shallower formats.

Cespedes left Thursday's game for a family medical emergency, but the Red Sox are hopeful that he'll be in the lineup Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Considering that Cespedes' reason for exiting Thursday's game wasn't because he suffered an injury, it doesn't seem like he'll be out for an extended period of time. However, manager John Farrell asked the media to respect his privacy, so it's possible that Cespedes will be allowed some time off to take care of his family matter.

Cespedes left Thursday's game to attend to a personal matter, MLB.com's Ian Browne reports.

Cespedes had logged just one at-bat prior to exiting, and was replaced in the lineup by Will Middlebrooks. Consider the outfielder day-to-day until more information is released regarding the matter.

Cespedes is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Cespedes is sitting for the first time since joining the Red Sox at the trade deadline, despite two separate opportunities to do so when he suffered a hand bruise and fouled a ball off his shin late last week. Meanwhile, he's driven in a run in six of the past eight games, batting .176 (6-for-34) with three homers, 10 RBI, six runs, and one stolen base.

Cespedes went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in a 4-2 loss to the Angels on Monday.

Cespedes is now 3-for-23 with one homer over the last five games. Since being traded to Boston, the Home Run Derby champion is slashing .219/.231/.406 with three long balls, 11 strikeouts and one walk in 64 at-bats.

Cespedes was 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a losing cause against the Astros on Friday night.

His fourth inning shot - his 20th of the season - gave the Red Sox a brief lead, but the Astros chipped away and won it in the 10th inning. Cepedes has an impressive 77 RBI and a pretty lackluster .254 average to go with those 20 long balls. They pay him to drive in runs, and he is very good at it.

Cespedes (shin) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

A foul ball to the shin resulted in Cespedes' early exit from Thursday's game, but he will be fine to play Friday, as expected. In 10 career at-bats against lefty Dallas Keuchel, Friday's starter for Houston, Cespedes has collected five hits including one double.
