The New York Mets continue to be snakebitten by injuries, losing star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to the 15 day disabled list.
Summary: Cespedes DL. Nimmo returning. Robles upset Tex stealing signs. Matz said didn’t hit Tex on purpose, but understands suspicion.

The New York Mets will place all star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on the 15 day disabled list with a quadriceps injury. He had been hampered by the same injury for weeks, but was deemed healthy enough to hit.
Given that the Mets play their next two series in American League parks, the DH seemed plausible for Cespedes. After Wednesday night’s game, that has changed as Cespedes seemed to aggravate his quad.
Looking at the opening day roster, the Mets are now without four starters, not counting Matt Harvey.
