Yoenis Cespedes has been banged up basically all season, missing time with hamstring, knee, and hand injuries. And now you can add a sprained left thumb to that list, as the A’s outfielder exited yesterday’s first-half finale after hurting his thumb sliding into second base.
At least this injury comes at a good time, as Cespedes has four days to heal before the A’s resume play Friday in Minnesota.
In between all the injuries he’s had a very solid rookie season, hitting .263 with nine homers, 11 doubles, and a .790 OPS in 54 games to begin a four-year, $36 million contract.
