  14. Cespedes shows bat speed and patience

    Keith Law

    My first look at Yoenis Cespedes of the Oakland Athletics came in Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals, although he was the DH so I have yet to witness the cannon of legend. You can see the upside pretty clearly just at the plate, but I ...
