Mets Coach Posts Video Of Cespedes Taking Batting Practice

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP)Mets outfielder Yoenis Céspedes is taking batting practice in his effort to return from a slew of lower-body injuries.

Minor league instructor and former Mets player Endy Chavez posted and then deleted video on Tuesday of the 34-year-old Céspedes taking swings. That came a few weeks after general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said he was uncertain whether Céspedes would play in 2020.
