For a Detroit team that’s already dealt with its share of injuries, the steady production of Yoenis Cespedes has been a big help.
Last week, Boston Red Sox’ Pablo Sandoval was benched for using Instagram during one of their games.
“I’m only focused on playing baseball, doing the best I can to help the team,” Cespedes said, “but I would like to stay here in Detroit.”
Cespedes was in the bathroom – and thus, late to return to the field – because he was sick to his stomach and needed to throw up.
The Reds broadcasters wanted the Tigers to bring in another player.
Yoenis Cespedes has left Detroit’s game against Oakland with flu-like symptoms.
The report does not come as much of a shock given comments Price made back in January.
The Tiger’s shortstop Jose Iglesias amazed just about everyone who saw his brilliant play on a pop-fly Sunday vs. the Cleveland Indians.
To me this celebration is better than the one that Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera had once upon a time.
“He’s a three, four hitter on any other team in the big leagues,” Victor Martinez said. “Makes you feel pretty good about your offense.”
