Former New York Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes didn't take an at-bat during the 2019 MLB season in part because of what the New York Post reported to be a fractured ankle linked with an encounter with a wild boar at his Florida ranch, and he appeared in only eight games during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign before he opted out without warning. 

With the Mets facing numerous injury setbacks during the first half of the current season, at least somebody within the organization considered a reunion involving the 35-year-old.
