Yoenis Cespedes agreed to a huge pay cut in 2020. The Mets outfielder hasn’t played since July of 2018 with various injuries, including ankle fractures from a fall at his ranch in Florida.
In 2016, Cespedes agreed to a four-year, $110 million contract and was set to make $29.5 million in 2020. He will now make $6 million with incentives that could end up paying him as much as $20 million.
After the Mets withheld part of Cespedes’ salary due to the injuries suffered at his ranch, the MLBPA filed a grievance. The amended salary agreement avoids a grievance hearing.
