New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes suffered multiple fractures of his right ankle during a “violent fall” on Saturday, according to the Mets. The incident occurred at Cespedes’ ranch in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen told reporters on Monday that Cespedes stepped in a hole. “He twisted and put his leg and foot in a difficult position,” said Van Wagenen, adding that Cespedes didn’t fall off a horse.

The St. Louis Cardinals on Monday requested unconditional release waivers on right-hander Luke Gregerson in a move that means they will recoup very little on their $11 million investment in the veteran reliever. The Cardinals signed Gregerson to a two-year deal before the 2018 season, but he pitched just 12 2/3 innings last season because of hamstring and shoulder issues. After posting a 7.11 ERA last year, the 35-year-old had a 7.94 mark in six appearances this year in a delayed start to the season because of lingering shoulder trouble.
