Part of the problem in evaluating Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes for the upcoming fantasy baseball season is that, as of now, we still don't know which team is going to sign him, or what their initial expectations will be. According to ESPN's Rumor Central, nearly half of baseball's teams have been linked to the 26-year-old slugger in some way. Cespedes is expected to sign in the next week or so, in time for spring training, and there's certainly the chance he will be featured in a big league team's Opening Day lineup.
