Yoenis Cespedes: Is He Worth It?


Cespedes has become one of the top-rated free agents on the market, gaining interest from several teams which naturally includes the Marlins. But my question is: Is he OVER-rated? His performance in the Cuban league is well known, he was arguably the star player of the league. But more recently in the Dominican Winter League, he basically failed to do anything.

Now I realize that Cespedes had a very short stint in that league, maybe he just didn't have any time to adjust. I also don't know very much about him, I didn't even know he existed up until Major League Baseball reported that he was defecting from the Cuban league.

But I personally don't feel Cespedes is worth the payroll, or the risk. UNLESS we were to keep him in the Minors for a while, at least until the All-Star break, so we can see if Cespedes has what it takes to play in the Majors. It's just my opinion.
