2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: YOENIS CESPEDES GIVES UP GOLF TO PRESERVE LEGS

New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had some good news both for the team's front office and those who plan to own him for 2018 fantasy baseball:  the gold clubs are being put away for the season.  Anyone who owned Cespedes over the last two seasons in fantasy baseball know all too well the chronic quad/hamstring injuries the Cuban slugger has suffered from and the constant torque of swinging a golf ball on literally a daily basis (he played before almost every game from 2016-17) have become a flash point with the Mets organization.  With that said, Cespedes vowed on Thursday to put the clubs away until October and with him also swearing off the monster weightlifting program he was on last season, some good injury vibes could be headed his way in 2018.  Right now Cespedes is coming as cheap as ever in fantasy baseball drafts given the injuries he went through a year ago and that means he makes for a terrific buy-low opportunity.  A healthy Cespedes can club 30 home runs, score 90, and drive in 100 and so this has to be taken as a major positive in terms of his future outlook.
