Yoenis Cespedes Returns with ‘Sense of Calm’ after Four-Year Deal

Back in November, Yoenis Cespedes landed a four-year, $110 million deal with the Mets. The Mets slugger stayed around for most of the winter quietly working with the team’s strength and conditioning program.

Today, Yoenis Cespedes is back in apparently in custom style…

LatinoAthlete.com has leaned that Yoenis Cespedes showed up to spring training in his $110,000 Mercedes-Benz GLE63 Coupe, but it was completely rebuilt.

Cespedes dumped $50k worth of additions into his whip from new hand-stitched interior fresh paint to custom wheel package. He rebuilt his car like he did himself.

Cespedes talked about embracing the calm and tranquility after signing his four-year, $110 million deal back in the fall. If you recall, the Cuban slugger agreed to return to the Mets with a record-breaking four-year, $110 million deal.

Yoenis Cespedes deal breaks down as follows:

  • The left fielder will earn $22.5 million in 2017
  • In 2018 and 2019 he will increase to $29 million
  • Followed by $29.5 million in 2020.

Cespedes said through Mets translator Melissa Rodriguez:

“Yes, having that really gives me a sense of calm. Knowing I am no longer year-to-year and my home is here with the Mets for the next four years, I am able to prepare and focus better.”

People may be talking about his ride all beefed up, but so is he, since he was slipping in and out of the clubhouse for the past week as pitchers and catchers worked out. It’s was part of the team’s strength and conditioning program

He also showed up in an albeit over-sized, white pickup truck last month. Yoenis Cespedes was working with team-approved Mike Barwis training facility, trimming down and strengthening his legs.

Asdrubal Cabrera who is glad The Mets kept Cespedes, said:

“This offseason we focused a lot on my legs, we did a lot of leg work, just to make sure they are as strong as they can be and stay healthy. He is a special player. He changes a lineup. He has so much talent. And people don’t realize, but he works hard. He works hard for his team.”

Cespedes has been and is a force for The Mets. He hit 31 home runs, drove in 86 runs, hitting .280.
