MIAMI (AP) - New York Mets left fielder Yoenis Cespedes has been scratched from Saturday’s lineup against the Miami Marlins because of a sore right hip.

Cespedes, who is batting .278 with 15 homers, was replaced shortly before the first pitch by Michael Conforto.

The injury is the latest in a wave for the Mets, who placed captain David Wright on the disabled list Friday with a herniated disk in his neck.
