As well as Yoenis Cespedes has performed this season, he is still only touching the surface of his true potential. Consider this, since the All-Star break when he's played almost everyday, missing only one game due to injury, Cespedes has hit .388 with five home runs and 21 RBI.
It is paramount for Cespedes to remain healthy and play every day. Every day he is out there is another game of experience for a young player who is still learning the American game. This is a guy who coming into the season didn't even know how to properly act after hitting a home run, having to be instructed by teammates that standing at home plate admiring a homer is a no-no in the majors.
For Cespedes, staying healthy and on the field is half the battle. If he can do so, he can become a serious MVP threat relatively soon.
