|Chris Young, Juan Lagares to compete in center field |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/27/13) ESPN.com reports that Chris Young will compete with Juan Lagares in spring training to be the Mets' center fielder. Manager Terry Collins stated previously that he views Lagares as the team's starting center fielder, but general manager Sandy Alderson said, "Chris is in a competition for center field...I think, realistically, we’ll see what Juan does offensively in spring training and go from there."
Alderson also added that as long as he gets some offensive production that his starter at the position will be the one who is the better defender. Should Young not win the job in center field, he will likely start at a corner outfield position.
The Mets finalized Young's one-year, $7.25 million deal Tuesday.
