Yoenis Cespedes could bat second for Mets this season

New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes may bat second in the order this season.

What It Means:

"It doesn't matter which spot in the lineup I am," Cespedes said through an interpreter. "I will do my best wherever I am." The 32-year-old slugger has traditionally hit third or fourth for his career but he's been working out of the two-hole this spring. If the Mets stick with the switch, it could lead to additional movement at the backend of the lineup, in an effort to give Cespedes more RBI opportunities.

numberFire's models project Cespedes to bat .281 with 31 home runs, 82 RBI, and 76 runs scored in 580 plate appearances this season.
