The Oakland slugger hit his first homer of the season on Sunday and is batting .217 overall to start the year.
"You may see him limp a little bit, but the training staff doesn't think it's an issue," said manager Bob Melvin. "Sometimes it doesn't bother him at all. Yesterday he didn't have a problem, and then when he went after that ball in the left-center-field gap, he felt it a little bit."
Melvin also joked, "I think it's because he wears a new pair of shoes every day."
Cespedes will have the opportunity to rest the heel Tuesday, with an off-day breaking up this three-game set that features all day games.
