The New York Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes was back in the starting lineup on Friday for the first time since July 20, 2018.
After going 0-2 vs the Atlante Braves on his 3rd at-bat- Cespedes hit a homer- the first one in over two years. He has now homered in 3 straight games going back to May 13, 2018.
The rule change of designated hitter universal plus the pandemic delay really worked in favor of the Mets.
Cespedes hadn't had a competitive at back in years and - and I"m pretty sure the cardboard cutouts went crazy for this one!
