Yoenis Cespedes is the Elbow Whisperer, gives Jacob deGrom dugout massage

Yoenis Cespedes is many things. 

He's a slugger.

He's a rocket launcher

He's a naturalist.  

He's a car enthusiast

Turns out, he's also an elbow whisperer with an advanced degree in massage therapy. When Jacob deGrom came out after seven strong innings in the Mets' 5-2 victory against the Cubs to take a 3-0 lead in the NLCS, Cespedes was seen giving deGrom a friendly and surely much-appreciated massage in the dugout.

As for what he's saying, we have to assume it's the loving, sweet nothings that elbows need to hear. Like, "What's the deal with an elbow? You're not an 'L' and you're not a bow, so ..."

While we can't legally promise that Cespedes' homeopathic treatment helps prevent muscle soreness, we can only assume that a Cespedes massage is easily worth a +5 to confidence and charisma.
