As informed in the video description by News Guide: New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Céspedes is opting out of the 2020 season for ”covid-related” reasons, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said after the team’s Sunday afternoon game. Van Wagenen described the decision as a ”surprise, ” according to reporters who were present for the announcement. Céspedes sparked concerns earlier in the afternoon when Van Wagenen said the team was unable to contact outfielder Céspedes after he failed to attend the team’s Sunday game against the Atlanta Braves, ESPN reported.”He did not reach out to management with any explanation for his absence, ” Van Wagenen said in a statement reported by ESPN. ”Our attempts to contact him have been unsuccessful. ”Céspedes has been the Mets’ designated hitter this season, including for the team’s Saturday game against the Braves, going 0 for 4 in a 7-1 loss, but was not listed in the original lineup for Sunday’s afternoon game, according to the outlet. Céspedes, a two-time MLB All-Star, sparked headlines in January when it was reported he fractured his ankle while on his Port St. Lucie ranch when a wild boar charged at him, causing him to fall and suffer multiple fractures in his right ankle, Insider previously reported. ESPN reported at the time that the incident caused the Céspedes to lose out on some of his salary, alleging he had breached his contract by participating in a prohibited activity. Céspedes returned to the roster this season after missing much of the past two years due to a series of leg problems. The Associated Press reported that since he didn’t begin the season on the injured list, his salary rose from $2, 222, 222, which was prorated from $6 million before this year’s abbreviated schedule, to $4, 074, 074.
