Céspedes joins the Águilas Cibaeñas 

The Cuban has not seen action in the Major Leagues since the abbreviated 2020 campaign

The Águilas Cibaeñas announced this Friday the signing of Cuban Yoenis Céspedes as reinforcement for the 2022-23 season.

The outfielder, who turns 37 in October, played for the Eagles in the LiDOM playoffs in 2011-12. He hit .143 with a double, a home run and two RBI in nine games.

Cespedes hasn't seen action in the major leagues since the abbreviated 2020 season, when he abruptly left the Mets after eight games.

He missed the entire 2019 season due to various injuries, including surgery on both heels and fractures to his right ankle.
