“He looks like a monster. He looks like he’s motivated. He looks like he’s in shape… The guy is definitely hungry.” – Michael Conforto
Cespedes only played in 38 games during the 2018 campaign and accumulated just 141 at bats. He slashed at a .262/.325/.496/.821 clip while hitting six doubles and nine home runs.
Cespedes should be the biggest beneficiary in this shortened season which will now feature the Universal DH. I imagine Cespedes will be slotted in that DH role on a regular basis, granted his health remains.
