Cespedes is back for an encore

There’s another Yoenis Cespedes video!

Kevin Goldstein has the video itself and another clip-by-clip breakdown over at Baseball Prospectus. The video includes a passing appearance by Tony Pena and Billy Eppler, two of several baseball coaches/executives shown visiting Cespedes on Pro Day. You can see them around the 4:18 mark.

You can also see the incredible number of scouts on hand. This is why the simple fact the Yankees have scouted Cespedes is not particularly relevant. Everyone has scouted this guy.

This new video has more baseball material than the first, but it’s still a highlight video with graphics and occasionally oddities. It changes little except to give a better look at Cespedes as a player.

Goldstein does add this news: It looks like Cespedes won’t become available until some time in January because of a goof up with his Dominican citizenship, “but interest remains sky high, so he’ll certainly be signed in time for spring training,” Goldstein writes.
