Gained residency as of today. Let's go Cubs, Nats, and Marlins.

It's not clear to me what the residency process is. I thought he had to be in the DR for a year. Is that the case here?

I think just about every team has an article out on the web that says "Yoenis Cespedes is the perfect fit for the X" ...

I wonder if Nats are delaying on Fielder to see what happens with Cespedes. NL only leagues really need both Fielder and Cespedes to go/stay in the NL to make up for the Pujols loss and Braun deflation in the auction pool.

Played his first game in the Dominican Winter League yesterday. He whiffed in all three at-bats.

Overexcited or rusty?

Both, for sure. As MLB.com notes, "Cespedes cannot be declared a Major League free agent until after he attains residency in the Dominican Republic, but scouts can watch him play before then."
