The New York Mets have made it official. The club announced that Yoenis Cesepedes has undergone surgery and is done for the remainder of the 2019 season.

After taking a fall at his ranch in Florida, Cesepedes presumably underwent surgery to fix multiple right ankle fractures, but he was also dealing with a previous heel injury. The precise nature of the surgeries has not been properly revealed.

Cespedes was getting ready to begin baseball activities again after receiving heel surgery last season, cutting his 2018 short. Unfortunately, do to the accident suffered at his ranch, his timetable has been pushed back far, far further.

This news about Cespedes just adds to what has been a disappointing season for the Metropolitans. A number of their key players have not been healthy of late, with Robinson Cano, and Jeff McNeil most recently finding their way onto the injured list.

La Potencia is still owed $29 million for this season alone, though the Mets may be able to recoup some of that money if they can prove the activity that caused him to get injured was prohibited under his contract.

Cespedes will not see the field in 2019, but who knows if he even will in 2020? With one year left on his deal, Mets fans will sure hope the slugging outfielder can get back healthy and be able to produce again.
