The rebooting continued Friday as Yoenis Cespedes was traded to the New York Mets for two prospects. Cespedes sent out a tweet thanking the organization just minutes ago:
Thanks to the @tigers organization, my teammates & of course, the fans for your support this season…NYC, see you soon!— Yoenis Cespedes (@ynscspds) July 31, 2015
While his time with the Tigers was short lived, Cespedes provided excitement both in the field with his rocket arm and at the plate with his propensity for massive dingers. Despite having to say goodbye to Cespedes, the good news (on top of the very solid return for a rental player) is that he might be back in the not so distant future.
Join us here at Bless You Boys in wishing Yoenis the best of luck and embrace the feels of this gif.
That was SICK, @ynscspds. @DAVIDprice14 approves. #OpeningDay pic.twitter.com/gFqtCCrjik— Detroit Tigers (@tigers) April 6, 2015
