Yoenis Cespedes Plans to Join PGA Tour After Baseball

Does Yoenis Cespedes have a future on the PGA Tour?

The New York Mets slugger certainly seems to think so…

“He’s got a complete game, honestly,” trainer Chris Wray told the The Times. “If he would take lessons and leave baseball, he could play on the Tour. He’s a three, four handicap, and he’s playing part time.”

Cubs salute Ross with teasing, affection

I can only imagine the fan-fare that awaits David Ross during his farewell tour.

Rizzo and Bryant have created an Instagram account called “GrandpaRossy_3” and, so far, have posted a few photos, including Ross’ first baseball card and one from an impromptu shopping trip to a sporting goods store.

“What I’ve learned from him last year and to this year and what I’m going to learn for the rest of my career from him being here, it’s huge to me,” Rizzo said of Ross. “I gave him all the credit in the world for last year, and I still give him credit. What he does in this clubhouse helps all of us young guys.”

How much do players respect Ross? New Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward is paying for Ross to have a hotel suite on the road the entire season. The two were lockermates in Atlanta when Heyward made his Major League debut in 2010, and Ross had quite an impact.

“That’s one of the first emotional moments I had in the offseason,” Ross said Monday. “[Heyward] texted me this nice long message about supposedly what I’ve done for him. That was cool to start reflecting back and people you’ve played with start saying nice things.”

That’s really cool of Heyward.
