Cespedes Takes BP, Frazier Runs For First Time Since Injury

Tim Healey of Newsday and Anthony Dicomo of MLB.com report that two Mets, Todd Frazier and Yoenis Cespedes, took steps today on the road to recovery from injury.

Frazier ran today and took batting practice for the first time in two weeks after going down with a strained left hamstring.

Cespedes (strained right hip flexor) also took batting practice at Miller Park prior to tonight’s contest against the Milwaukee Brewers, in which he apparently crushed multiple homers. However, Cespedes has not begun any running yet.

Both players do not have a clear timetable for their returns from the 10-day DL, but Frazier has said that a rehab assignment is likely for him while it is unknown if Cespedes will need one as well.

The former was hitting .237/.357/.412  five home runs and 21 RBI in 112 at-bats.

Meanwhile, Cespedes was hitting .255/.316/.474 with eight home runs and 28 RBI in 137 at-bats before going down.
