The star outfielder Yoenis Céspedes from the New York Mets has once again injured himself. The general manager of New York Metz Brodie van Wagenen has announced that Céspedes had fractured his right ankle.

Apparently, the fracture was caused by an accident that happened at
Céspedes’ ranch in Florida last Saturday. The manager Van Wagenen said that the player was not on a horse when he got injured, and instead, he had stepped in a hole and had a violent fall. Furthermore, the manager stated the player is under medical examination in New York.

Céspedes, who is now 33 years old has missed a great portion of the previous few seasons because of sustaining several injuries. Because of his heel surgery he underwent in 2018, he only played 38 games and in 2017 he missed almost half of the campaign because of hamstring problems. The player was expected by the Mets around July All-Star break but this injury even puts his career in jeopardy.

In February, Brodie van Wagenen said that it is expected of Céspedes to be an MVP-caliber player after his return.
