Yo, here's another cespedes.

Cuban outfielder Yoelkis Cespedes, the 22-year-old half-brother of wild boar-attacked Mets outfielder Yoenis, is planning showcase events for boy scouts in Florida and Arizona next month, according to MLB.com.

Yoelkis Cespedes, who played for the 2017 World Baseball Classic for Cuba, left the national team last summer and trained in the Bahamas for the winter, including his brother, before Yoenis reported to the Mets Camp in Port St. Lucie ,

No official training dates for Yoelkis Cespedes have been announced because he has not yet been declared a free agent to be signed by a major league team.

According to the MLB.com report, the scouts regard Yoelkis as “a player with five tools and above-average tools across the board”. "

The 5-9 outfielder has also added 20 pounds (on 205) "and now looks almost exactly like his older brother in the batter box," the report said.

Yoenis Cespedes appeared at the WBC for Cuba in 2009 and resigned two years later before signing as a free agent at Oakland. He's trying to make a comeback with the Mets after missing out all season after heel surgery and a broken ankle when he was attacked by a wild boar on his Florida farm last year.
