VIDEO: Should the Mets Take a Flier on Cespedes’ Baby Brother?


Apparently, the apple does not fall far from the tree. In the video below, you’ll see Yoelkis Cespedes Maceo, the baby brother of Yoenis Cespedes, made a wonderful tumbling catch, followed by an excellent throw to complete a double play.

Here’s the video:

Here’s an excerpt from’s Jesse Sanchez:

Back in Cuba, he is considered one of the top prospects on the island, and some baseball experts have gone as far as to claim he is better than Yoenis was at the same age. Yoelkis hit .304 with five home runs, eight doubles and 25 RBIs in 45 games in the first half of the season for Granma. He posted a .362 on-base percentage and slugged .525 with an .887 OPS. The speedster also hit six triples.

Should the Mets be interested in Yoenis Cespedes? With Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce on contract years, there may be an opening soon. Let us know in the comments section below.
