LF Yoenis Cespedes (left heel) exited following the fifth inning Monday night, when the Mets beat the Cubs 6-1. Cespedes, who was activated from the disabled list Saturday after missing 37 games due to left hamstring and right quad injuries, appeared to be moving slow as he walked to the plate for all three of his at-bats and ran gingerly to first base each time.

However, Cespedes admitted in the bottom of the inning that the injury was still bothering him, though he was able to convince Collins to let him bat one more time before being lifted for OF Juan Lagares. Both Cespedes and Collins said they were confident Cespedes would be in the lineup Tuesday. Cespedes went 1-for-3 Monday and is now batting .278 with seven homers and 14 RBIs in 21 games this season.
