Yoenis Cespedes broke his silence with the media Sunday, saying he didn't want to talk about the past and is hoping to be ready for Opening Day.

This past Monday, the New York Mets outfielder had told reporters he did not plan to talk to the media.

"Not today, not tomorrow, not at all this year," he said, only to change his mind six days later, answering questions through an interpreter.

Asked by reporters whether he planned to be ready for Opening Day, he said, "If I continue progressing the way that I am, yes."

He has been working out with his Mets teammates since Monday.

While recovering from surgery on his heels last May, Cespedes fractured his right ankle in multiple places in an accident at his ranch near the Mets' training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida. He and the Mets agreed in December to an amended contract that cut his base salary from $29.5 million to $6 million. He would raise his pay to $11 million if he has one active day on the major league roster and to $20 million if he has 650 plate appearances -- a figure he has reached just once.
