Yoenis Cespedes’ boycott of the media lasted six days.

Cespedes spoke for the first time this spring on Sunday, admitting that he made a “mistake” that led to his season-ending ankle fracture in May 2019. He added that he’s targeting Opening Day for his return to action.

In other words, we’re not going to get much clarity regarding Cespedes’ reported wild boar incident. That incident cost him a lot of money as the Mets forced him to restructure his contract, and a lot of people were understandably upset with him over the whole ordeal.

What is clear is that Cespedes’ threatened media boycott is definitely over now. Perhaps someone with the Mets had a word with him about it.
