He says the only way to fix the issue is surgery.

He'll try and make it through the rest of the year without surgery, but if he's going to miss 8-10 months, it might be best for him to go under the knife on the sooner side.

Asked about the outfielder's comments from Friday night, Callaway responded that he was "not quite exactly sure what he said". He hit a solo home run in the win over the Yankees (NYM 7, NYY 5), but afterward Cespedes shed some light on some long-term health concerns ...

Cespedes, 32, is batting.262 with nine home runs and 29 RBIs in 38 games this season. And then he starts coming back, his heels get pretty sore.

"I've been playing like this for the last 15 years, but as time goes by it's getting worse and worse", he said. "It would be tough for me to speculate on anything".

"We've talked with Brodie a little bit", Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said.

There also was no additional information on a looming trade of Jeurys Familia, other than the Mets would continue to hold him out of games, Callaway.

The Mets had planned to use Cespedes as a designated hitter for the first two games of their weekend series against the Yankees before a possible return to the outfield Sunday. Callaway said after the game that Syndergaard was a little exhausted but his finger was fine.

In addition to losing his production, another concern for the Mets is that Cespedes after this season will still have nearly $60 million left on his contract.

"Seeing how things are going after the years, I realize that the cause of the problems are my heels, because when I feel some pain in my heels I start modifying my walking way, my running way, or even my standing", Cespedes said per the Daily News. As Cespedes stated, he'd be sidelined for 8-10 months.

"There might be some times where Ces, moving forward, where Ces is a late scratch because the performance staff and myself doesn't think he's in a great spot to get through the game healthy", Callaway said.

Cespedes spent much of his layoff at the Mets' training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida, and was upset by criticism.
