Yoenis Cespedes Injury: A's Hopeful Slugger Can DH In Padres Series

The Oakland Athletics continue to have their injury woes this season as slugger Yoenis Cespedes will once again sit out against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday, though skipper the team is hopeful that he can still be used as the DH in their upcoming series against the San Diego Padres.

Per MLB.com's Jane Lee on Twitter:

Cespedes missed four straight games dealing with a hamstring strain, and had to be removed in the second inning of Wednesday night's contest after tweaking his hammy again. Hopefully he can get enough rest without having to be put on the disabled list again. The 26-year-old is hitting .273/.336/.485 with six home runs this season.
