Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is an ugly 2-for-16 (.125) without an extra-base hit and four strikeouts versus Rays right-hander Alex Cobb.
Insight: The trade of Cespedes to Boston hasn't helped either team or the hitter. This season between Oakland and Boston, Cespedes is hitting .228 with 22 home runs and 97 RBI, but his OPS is down 39 points since coming east.
 
9/5/2014 11:11:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes went 4-for-6 and drove in the game-winning run in the 10th inning as Boston defeated Toronto, 9-8.
Insight: Cespedes started the Red Sox scoring in the first inning with a single that scored Brock Holt. The left fielder finished with two RBI and a run. This season with Oakland and Boston, Cespedes is hitting .266 with 21 home runs and 93 RBI.
 
8/31/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is just 1-for-13 against Rays right-hander Alex Cobb.
Insight: Cespedes has been consistent this season whether with Oakland or Boston, but his missing bat in the A's lineup has been noticed as his former team is scoring a run a game less without him. Cespedes is not a good play Sunday.
 
8/24/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, one RBI and two runs Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: Cespedes has driven in 18 runs in his last 16 games and he now ranks ninth in baseball with 85 RBI.
 
8/22/2014 10:52:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run homer off Felix Hernandez Friday night.
Insight: Cespedes has four home runs since joining Boston, and all either gave the team the lead or tied the game. He's also driven in 16 runs in his 19 games with the team even though he's batted .230 in that span.
 
8/21/2014 11:18:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game after one at-bat due to a family medical emergency.
Insight: He could return as soon as Friday, but we have no accurate information as of yet. The outfielder was 2-for-11 in the four-game set with the Angels and hasn't done much since being traded to the Red Sox.
 
8/19/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is not in Tuesday's starting lineup.
Insight: Cespedes is presumably getting the day off in order to rest. The outfielder has not played well since being traded to the Red Sox. Cespedes has three hits in his last 28 at-bats.
 
8/15/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game after fouling a ball of his shin, but he's back in Friday's starting lineup.
Insight: He's batting .254 with 19 HR and 75 RBI this season and should have a good series against Houston. He's got a career .310 batting average versus the Astros and has gone deep against them three times in 2014.
 
8/13/2014 3:21:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Wednesday's game with a bruised right hand.

8/12/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes homered for the second straight game Tuesday at Cincinnati.
Insight: And for the second straight game, Cespedes' blast came in the eighth inning and gave the Red Sox the lead. We're excited to see how Cespedes takes to Fenway Park in Boston's 11-game homestand that starts Thursday. He played his first two games with the team there but Boston has been on the road since Aug. 5.
 
8/10/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes' first home run with Boston was a big one -- his three-run shot broke a scoreless tie in the top of the eighth inning Sunday against the Angels.
Insight: Cespedes has gone 9-for-34 (.265) with five RBI in eight games with his new team, though he has only had a chance to play twice at Fenway Park. The Red Sox play two games at Cincinnati before coming home for an 11-game homestand. We're guessing Cespedes will enjoy his new digs.
 
8/2/2014 12:54:00 PM
Description: Newly acquired Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes will bat cleanup and play left field Saturday.
Insight: Cespedes had been one of Oakland's top hitters since he signed in 2012 and has hit .256 with 17 homers, 67 RBI and a .767 OPS this season. Boston fans hope he can be even better in hitter-friendly Fenway Park.
 
8/1/2014 4:02:00 PM

Insight: Cespedes had been one of Oakland's top hitters since he signed in 2012 and has hit .256 with 17 homers, 67 RBI and a .767 OPS this season. Boston fans will have to wait one more day before seeing what he can do in hitter-friendly Fenway Park.
 
7/31/2014 12:22:00 PM
Description: The A's have traded Yoenis Cespedes to the Boston Red Sox for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes.
Insight: Cespedes has been one of Oakland's top hitters since he signed in 2012 and has hit .256 with 17 homers, 67 RBI and a .767 OPS this season. Now he'll get to take aim at the Green Monster instead of playing in cavernous O.co Coliseum.
 
7/25/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Athletics left fielder Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) is back in the lineup Friday.
Insight: Cespedes sprained his thumb Wednesday after hitting two homers and driving in five runs earlier in the game. Fantasy owners should consider it a stroke of luck that he had to miss just one game.

Insight: Cespedes injured himself on a swing. He's batting .254 with 16 HR and 61 RBI this season and the high-scoring Oakland lineup is likely to suffer a bit if he has to sit. Call him day-to-day.
