Teammate says Yoenis Cespedes ‘looks like a monster’ heading into 2020

  Teammate says Yoenis Cespedes ‘looks like a monster’ heading into 2020 Yoenis Cespedes is one of several National League players who could benefit from Major League Baseball implementing a universal designated hitter this season. Judging by Michael Conforto’s level of excitement about Cespedes, the veteran outfielder could give the New York Mets a major boost in a shortened year. © Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports New York Mets designated hitter Yoenis Cespedes has a lot to prove, returning from injuries and looks to be monstrously prepared. Cespedes appears to be healthy entering the 2020 season.

MLB fans have been waiting four months for this: giving a player massive grief on social media for messing up. (What, you thought we were going to say "watch actual MLB teams play"?)

Their target Saturday night was Mets nonroster infielder Max Moroff.

The former Pirate got the start at third base against the Yankees in the teams' first exhibition of Summer Camp (Jeff McNeil was given the night off). Moroff was anonymous until the sixth inning, when the wheels came off.

Report: Steve Cohen making 'big push' to buy New York Mets

  Report: Steve Cohen making 'big push' to buy New York Mets Mets minority owner Steve Cohen is expected to make a new push to acquire control of the team from the Wilpon family. Will Steve Cohen buy the New York Mets?The New York Mets were nearly sold to multibillionaire Steve Cohen before the deal fell apart in February. The Wilpons explored a number of suitors, including some who would partner with Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez. However, the level of interest in the team has dropped since the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, the team remains on the market and negotiations are ongoing, which could lead to the eventual sale of the team this year.

First, he threw away a slow dribbler by Giancarlo Stanton, a toss that took Mets first baseman Pete Alonso into the path of a jogging Stanton. A few inches here or there (or a faster Stanton going down the line), and Alonso could have been in serious physical danger.

Moroff had a chance to make amends when the next batter, Gio Urshela, hit a routine grounder. Moroff took his time, gathered his feet — and sailed the ball over Alonso's head.

He got a third chance with the next batter, Miguel Andujar. This time, Moroff got the out, but Stanton scored from third.

And because a Met Mets'd, Twitter — and not just Mets Twitter — was ready to dance.

There were more tweets, of course. Many more. For two errors in an exhibition.

Moroff is attempting to make the Mets' 30-man Opening Day roster as a reserve, but his Flushing debut won't help. The Mets have multiple options, including Luis Guillorme, Eduardo Nunez, Gordon Beckham and Jed Lowrie, who remains sidelined with leg injuries.

Royals P Jakob Junis kicked a sharply hit ball up in the air, and 3B Maikel Franco snagged the ball and tossed it to first for the bizarre double-play against the White Sox on Sunday.
