Yoenis Cespedes 'not 100 percent,' but 'doesn't hurt him to swing'

NEW YORK -- New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes injected the team's offense with life when he arrived in a July 31 trade with the Detroit Tigers.

However, he's now 1-for-10 during the World Series.

Is the left shoulder injury that forced him to depart Game 4 of the National League Championship Series a factor in his struggles?

Manager Terry Collins suggests no.

"He tells me, even though it’s not 100 percent, he says it doesn’t hurt him to swing at all," Collins said before Game 3 against the Kansas City Royals on Friday.
