Even though New York Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes is remaining silent, plenty of questions still remain.

New York Mets rookie manager Luis Rojas has been impressed with Yoenis Cespedes, who’s still recovering from various injuries this spring. The Cuban slugger has dedicated his whole offseason to his recovery.

Although his return to the diamond is still a little ways away he gave us a glimpse of what he can still bring to the table when he connected for a titanic shot off Rick Porcello earlier this week in live batting practice.

Céspedes, who imposed his own ban on the press, has been participating in three fourths of the drills with his teammates has been progressing nicely.

light. More Mets. Cespedes done with the media

The $64 question for the Mets is when will the outfielder be cleared to take the field, for the moment his return a little cloudy.

Although Céspedes has yet to try out his surgically repaired ankle and heels in game, next week will be an important one in his recovery hinted Rojas to a few publications.

The native of Campechuela, Cuba has been a dynamic player for the Queens bunch when on the field but injuries have prevented him from making an impact. Can Céspedes return to his 35 homer 2015 form? That remains to be seen.

Another factor one must take into account is will Céspedes’s body be able to take the rigors of a full season? Also at 34 years of age, many have wondered if his days as a full time player are over?

For this simple fact, one cannot make assumptions until we see the slugger complete a full season of work.

How will Céspedes’s recovery play out this spring is something to be seen? Will we ever see the Cespedes that had back to back 30 homer years?

Next. Hook doesn't consider himself a whistle blower. dark

One thing that is certain with the New York Mets star’s refusal to speak to the media, his skipper will be answering a lot of questions about his role with the team this spring.
