Cespedes is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes has been scorching hot at the plate since returning from the disabled list roughly two weeks ago, but he'll get the day off as the Mets square off against Matt Moore and the Giants. Michael Conforto will take over in left field with Curtis Granderson drawing the start in center.

Cespedes homered, scored twice and drove in three runs in a 3-for-5 game Friday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Cespedes's third home run since returning to the Mets lineup June 10. Cespedes is hitting a ridiculous .321/.392/.651 and has been performing at an MVP level whenever he has been healthy this season.

Cespedes was back in left field Monday, hitting third and going 1-for-4 in a 10-6 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets are taking it easy with Cespedes to try and avoid any recurrence of the lower-body issues that have plagued him this season, sitting him down Sunday after he'd started three games in a row. Expect him to continue getting frequent days off for the time being.

Cespedes is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Collins had previously announced that Cespedes would be getting Sunday off after starting three straight games from Thursday to Saturday. The timing is a bit unfortunate, as the star left fielder is coming off a monster four-hit game from Saturday's contest. Curtis Granderson will hold down left field in his absence, but Cespedes should be back in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers.

Manager Terry Collins said he will give Cespedes Sunday off before deploying him regularly, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets have been cautious with the star slugger since he returned from the disabled list, but that will hopefully change after Sunday. The Mets plan to play Cespedes in three straight games starting Thursday (marking the first time he'll do so since returning from the DL), and if he responds well, he'll get the day off Sunday before being sent out without any restrictions.

Cespedes is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Although the stud outfielder was removed from Tuesday's game early, he doesn't appear to be nursing an injury anymore. Wednesday's absence appears to just be an effort to ease him back into action, allowing Curtis Granderson to pick up a start in left field to replace him.

Cespedes (heel) went 2-for-2 with an RBI double in Tuesday's 14-3 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

With this game's outcome not in question after the early innings, the Mets wisely pulled Cespedes after five innings for extra rest, but he avoided aggravating the heel injury that got him removed from Monday's game. When he's been in the lineup, Cespedes has been a wrecking ball this year, piling up 12 extra-base hits in just 74 at-bats.

Cespedes (heel) is batting third and playing left field in Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Cespedes is back in action after leaving Monday's series opener with a heel issue. The Mets were likely exercising precaution with their slugger given the amount of time he has already missed this season. He'll look to add to his seven homers and 14 RBI as he faces southpaw Jon Lester on Tuesday.

Cespedes (heel) says he thinks he can play Tuesday against the Cubs, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The good news continues to roll in after Cespedes was forced to leave Monday's game after the fifth inning with heel soreness. Not only did Cespedes not aggravate his old hamstring injury, but the heel problem doesn't look severe enough to force him to miss any time.

Cespedes left Monday's game with left heel soreness, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given the fear that Cespedes had left the game over aggravation of the hamstring injury that cost him over a month earlier this season, this should be considered good news. The cause or severity of the injury are still unclear. Cespedes should still be considered day-to-day for now.
