Yoenis Cespedes a worthy trade target

Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes returned to the team’s lineup Tuesday after missing four games with a tweaked hamstring, getting one single, two walks and three runs scored in a blowout win over lefty Martin Perez and the Texas Rangers. Cespedes, a seventh-rounder in ESPN average live drafts, remains 100 percent owned in standard leagues and certainly should be, but what kind of player is he? After all, there’s a certain Cuban slugger lighting things up for the Chicago White Sox (Jose Abreu), and there’s constant attention on the lightning rod in right field for the Los Angeles Dodgers (Yasiel Puig). Cespedes was terrific his first year and a bit less so as a sophomore. At age 28, it’s tough to know what fantasy owners will be getting, but he seems almost under the radar.
