Yoenis Cespedes has gotten off to a sluggish start in the Dominican League playoffs, but he flashed his bat speed and power potential tonight with his first home run since joining the Aguilas Cibaeñas.
In a 3-2 count against Astros righthander Rhiner Cruz, Cespedes lifted a 97-mph fastball over the left field wall in the sixth inning. Including tonight's 1-for-4 showing, Cespedes is 3-for-23 (.130) with a hit by pitch, no walks and six strikeouts while serving as the Aguilas DH.
Here's the home run, for your viewing pleasure:
