Cespedes hits first HR (w/video)

    Yoenis Cespedes hit his first home run in the Dominican winter league, and as you can see from the video, he's one who likes to admire his work. Cespedes continues to seek residency in the Dominican and the green light from MLB to become a free agent.

     The Marlins will be one of his strongest suitors, along with a handful of other clubs. Cespedes said the other day that the Cubs have shown the most interest in him so far, but Marlins president David Samson said the team plans to be aggressive in its pursuit of the Cuban outfielder.

     Cespedes' home run has been about his only high point so far in winter ball. He's gone 3 for 23 with six strikeouts. The homer represents his only RBI, run scored and extra-base hit. He has not walked.
