New Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has put his power on display over the past two years winning the home run derby.

Although he has won the event twice, Sean McAdam isn't sure Cespedes' offensive tools have converted in game situations.

"I don't care that he's won the home run derby twice," said McAdam. "It does show that he has strength and great raw power. But he hasn't hit more than 26 homers in a season, so let's see it on the field.

"I don't care what he looks like in BP, I don't care what he looks like in an All-Star Game exhibition contest, and that's what it is. I want to see more than 26 home runs over the course of a season."
