Yoenis Cespedes – OF

After inking a new three year deal worth $75 million this winter, Yoenis Cespedes is returning to the Mets in 2016. Cespedes, who was acquired at the trade deadline last July, was the instrumental factor in the Mets’ charge into the postseason. In just 57 games with the Mets he slugged 17 home runs, and accounted for 44 RBIs, giving an excellent pitching staff the run support that they desperately needed. In his first four major-league seasons Cespedes has hit 106 HRs, and 367 RBIs, to go with 124 doubles, and a .271 batting average. Surprisingly enough, he has only appeared in the Midsummer Classic just once, in 2014, when he appeared for the American League All-Stars. Cespedes, if healthy, will likely appear for the National League All-Stars in his fifth major-league season in 2016.
