News: Cespedes is out of the lineup Wednesday at Toronto, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Cespedes has driven in runs in each of the past five games, and seven of the last nine, as he's seemingly found comfort with the Red Sox. During that stretch, he hit .364 (12-for-33) with one homer, nine RBI, and four runs. He'll hand off left field to Daniel Nava, who is batting fifth in the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Cespedes (personal) is back in Boston's lineup Friday against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners, the Providence Journal's Tim Britton reports. Impact: He left Thursday's game because of a family medical emergency, but the personal issue won't force Cespedes to miss any further time. He has slashed just .200/.250/.233 in 30 career at-bats against Hernandez, with just one extra-base hit and 10 strikeouts, so it may be wise to keep the slumping outfielder on the bench in shallower formats.(RotoWire, )

News: Cespedes was 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a losing effort against Seattle on Friday night. Impact: After leaving Thursday's game due to a family medical emergency, Cespedes returned to the lineup Friday, and contributed his 21st home run while running his RBI total to 83 on the year. With a stroke well-suited to his new home park, there is a chance he could enjoy a strong stretch run despite the Red Sox falling out of contention.(RotoWire, )

News: Cespedes left Thursday's game to attend to a personal matter, MLB.com's Ian Browne reports.

News: Cespedes is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Cespedes is sitting for the first time since joining the Red Sox at the trade deadline, despite two opportunities to do so when he suffered a hand bruise and fouled a ball off his shin late last week. Meanwhile, he's driven in a run in six of the last eight games, batting .176 (6-for-34) with three homers, 10 RBI, six runs and one stolen base.(RotoWire, )

News: Cespedes (shin) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: A foul ball to the shin resulted in Cespedes' early exit from Thursday's game, but he will be fine to play Friday as expected. In 10 career at-bats against lefty Dallas Keuchel, Friday's starter for Houston, Cespedes has collected five hits including one double.(RotoWire, )

News: Cespedes was 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a losing cause against the Astros on Friday night. Impact: His fourth inning shot - his 20th of the season - gave the Red Sox a brief lead, but the Astros chipped away and won it in the 10th inning. Cepedes has an impressive 77 RBI and a pretty lackluster .254 average to go with those 20 long balls. They pay him to drive in runs, and he is very good at it.(RotoWire, )

News: Cespedes fouled a pitch off his shin in the seventh inning of Thursday's win over the Astros and was eventually pulled from the game, CSN New England reports. Manager John Farrell expects him to be ready to play Friday. Impact: The incident happened in his next-to-last at-bat, but he remained in the game to take his final plate appearance. That suggests it's not a big deal, but the Red Sox will evaluate him Friday.(RotoWire, )
