MRI reveals minor hamstring injury for Juan Lagares


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares will need one-to-two weeks to recover from a minor hamstring pull, the Star-Ledger reports.

"It's not that bad," Lagares said.

An MRI on the injured hamstring revealed that his injury is relatively minor, and Lagares is set to begin undergoing treatment. He was placed on the disabled list Tuesday.


Mets recall Kirk Nieuwenhuis, place Juan Lagares on DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) The Mets placed outfielder Juan Lagares on the disabled list Tuesday with a right hamstring injury, the team announced. Outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his spot ahead of the team's game against the Diamondbacks that evening. 

Juan Lagares likely headed to disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) The Mets will likely place outfielder Juan Lagares on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and call up a replacement option, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

The Mets lost two outfielders to injuries Monday, but Curtis Granderson has been ruled day-to-day. Lagares, however, suffered a pulled hamstring while running the bases and was replaced by a pinch hitter. With Chris Young not eligible to return until Friday, the Mets need an outfield option over the next few days. That outfielder is expected to be promoted Tuesday.


Juan Lagares suffers pulled hamstring Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares was removed from Monday's game against the Diamondbacks with a pulled hamstring, the team announced.

Lagares singled late in the game but had to be removed for a pinch runner after suffering the injury. He finished the game 1 for 4. Lagares is .314/.345/.471 with one home run and seven RBI in 51 at-bats. With Curtis Granderson also injured in the game, the team is suddenly shorthanded on outfielders. Lucas Duda moved to left field from first base Monday after the injury.


Juan Lagares feeling fine after crashing into wall Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares said his shoulder is feeling OK after crashing into the outfield wall on a fine defensive play Wednesday, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"It just felt a little heavy, but after that I threw with Grandy and I felt like normal," Lagares said.

Lagares was 1 for 4 with two RBI Wednesday, and he's hit .321/.375/.571 in his first 28 at-bats.


Juan Lagares stays hot with two extra-base hits Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) After going 2 for 4 with a home run in Monday's opener, Mets outfielder Juan Lagares went 2 for 4 again Wednesday, hitting a double and a triple in his team's 5-1 loss to the Nationals.

Lagares recorded two hits out of the leadoff spot while the rest of the Mets lineup was 1 for 25 combined. He was expected to share time in center field with Eric Young this season, but an injury to Chris Young could open up more playing time for both players. If Lagares continues to shine offensively, it'll be hard to send him back to a part-time role.


Mets would like to see more offense from Juan Lagares


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson suggested Tuesday that if outfielder Juan Lagares wants to keep his spot on the roster, then he's going to need to increase his offensive production.

"I think everybody would probably agree he's our best [defensive] outfielder, he's our best center fielder," Alderson said, per ESPN. "But he's going to have to hit a little bit, too. So if he were to start in center field on opening day, we'd have to see over a period of time -- how long, how short I don't know -- that he can carry the offensive side of the game as well. And if that's not the case, then typically a guy like that would be better off playing every day somewhere else. But that's premature."


Mets to go with best offensive options in outfield


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that the team will use their three best offensive options in the outfield, which could give Eric Young a leg up over Juan Lagares in the competition for the team's final starting spot, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Young could be a leadoff option for the team most games, which would leave the Mets able to use Lagares as a defensive replacement later in games. Young hit .249/.310/.336 with two home runs, 32 RBI and 46 stolen bases in 539 at-bats between two teams last season.


Juan Lagares attends Mets offseason camp


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares attended the team's offseason fitness and nutrition camp, according to ESPN.

The camp is run by Mets advisor Mike Barwis. It focuses on creating nutrition and workout programs for players. It also tutors players on running and cutting. Lagares wasn't as much of a stolen base threat in the majors, swiping six bags in nine attempts. He stole 21 bases in the minors, but was caught 10 times last year. Lagares hit .242/.281/.352 in 392 at-bats.


Juan Lagares getting knee checked out


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares revealed through Twitter that he is on his way to New York to have his knee examined. Provided he isn't seriously injured, he is expected to compete for the starting center-field job next season.

Chris Young, Juan Lagares to compete in center field


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/27/2013) 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.


Juan Lagares on track for regular center field duty in 2014


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that he envisions outfielder Juan Lagares as his 2014 center fielder "right now," ESPN New York reports.

Lagares has hit .244/.283/.355 with four home runs, 34 RBI and six stolen bases in 389 at-bats. He's manned center field 107 times for the Mets, and Sunday's finale will be his 76th start at the position.


Three hits from Juan Lagares


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares notched three hits in Saturday's win over Washiington. 

Lagares finished 3 for 5 with three singles, two runs scored and two RBI. Lagares's value primarily comes in the field, but he's hitting enough to justify a spot in the majors. His line sits at .266/.303/.394 with four home runs and five stolen bases in 297 at-bats.


Juan Lagares hitting .250 in last 24 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares has had mixed results since winning NL player of the week honors in late July. In his last 24 games, Lagares is batting .250 with a .424 slugging percentage and .724 OPS.

Lagares has two home runs, three triples, four doubles, nine RBI, 10 runs and five stolen bases in that span. He also has 19 strikeouts and five walks.


Juan Lagares picks up big triple


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares hit a bases clearing triple Tuesday against the Rockies.

Lagares struck in the first inning. With the bases loaded, Lagares hit a Chad Bettis cutter out to right. All three of the runners scored, giving Lagares three RBI on the day. He later added a single, finishing the game 2 for 4.

Lagares is hitting .271/.303/.411 in 207 at-bats. 


Juan Lagares reaches four times


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares reached base four times Tuesday against the Marlins.

Lagares went 3 for 3, with two singles and one triple. He also walked. Lagares finished the game with no runs scored and two RBI. He's hitting .275/.307/.412 in 182 at-bats. 


Juan Lagares ready for larger role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins gave Juan Lagares a vote of confidence Friday, after Lagares went 3 for 4 in an 11-0 win over the Nationals. Lagares, who has been involved in a platoon recently with Kirk Nieuwenhuis, appears to have earned his manager's favor -- not to mention more playing time.

"There's no reason why he shouldn't be out there right now when you do what he did with Jordan Zimmermann on the mound," Collins told ESPN.com. "He fouled some pitches off, got a decent ball to hit, ran the bases." 

Lagares had two doubles, a walk and three runs scored, while stealing two bases in the game. In the month of July, Lagares is hitting .391 with seven extra-base hits in 46 at-bats. 


Juan Lagares not bringing great Fantasy value to the table


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares popped up on Fantasy radars this past week after taking home NL player of the week honors following his weekend performance against the Phillies. However, Lagares has quietly produced for the Mets since early June.

He is batting .318 with a .467 slugging percentage in his last 32 games (23 starts). He has one triple, one home run, 11 doubles and 15 RBI in that span. Unfortunately, he still doesn't start every day and it doesn't appear that's about to change anytime soon.

Mets manager Terry Collins said earlier this week it's going to take an injury to Kirk Nieuwenhuis before he goes away from the platoon situation in center field. Therefore, Fantasy owners should not be making a great investment in Lagares.


Study session yields results for Juan Lagares


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) Mets rookie outfielder Juan Lagares spent the All-Star break spending a great deal of time studying film and analyzing recent at-bats, according to the New York Post. Well, it seems the time in the film room paid off.

Lagares had a great series against the Phillies over the weekend, recording multiple hits in all three games. He hit .700 (7 for 10) with one home run, two doubles and five RBI.

"I look at everything," the 24-year-old outfielder said. "I have to do something to get better every day."

Lagares has been platooning with Kirk Nieuwenhuis in center field. It seems like a plan manager Terry Collins will continue, but Lagares could play his way into more at-bats against right-handed starters.

"Juan’s gonna certainly get some playing time against right-handers, not just a platoon playing time thing," Collins said. "We know he’s got all the skills."


Juan Lagares keeps hitting


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares has five hits in two post-break games after getting three Saturday in a 5-4 win over the Phillies.

Lagares was 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI a day after finishing 2 for 3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored. Lagares has raised his batting average from .234 to .257. 


Juan Lagares quietly producing for Mets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2013) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares had an RBI double and scored once in four at-bats Sunday against the Phillies. Lagares is batting .313 (16 for 51) with a triple, four RBI, five doubles and seven runs in his last 13 games (11 starts).

Juan Lagares, Kirk Nieuwenhuis to share time in CF


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins said outfielders Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas Sunday, and Juan Lagares will share playing time in center field. However, it might not be a strict lefty-righty platoon.

"I don't think we need to do a straight platoon," Collins said, per ESPN. "There might even be a time when they're both out there at the same time. That's certainly the reason why Juan is still here. We're getting to the stages where we've got to start taking a look down the road. So there certainly could be that time when they're both out there. But I think you want to pick your spots -- not to put Juan over his head or Nieuwy over his head against somebody you're just not going to be able to hit." 


Juan Lagares shows a little life


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins told MLB.com before Wednesday's game against the Nationals he would like to see more offense from outfielder Juan Lagares, and he got just that later in the day.

Lagares went 3 for 5 with a run scored in a 10-1 win. Lagares is hitting .189 in 53 at-bats and should start Thursday with a left-handed pitcher on the mound.

"He needs to hit," Collins said. "We're making enough outs, let alone just to give them away."


Juan Lagares has a game of firsts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2013) Mets rookie Juan Lagares hit first major league homer Sunday against the Cubs, a tying, two-run drive in the seventh inning against Cubs starter Travis Wood. He had his second double in the game as well.

The home run provided the first RBI of Lagares' career and he also had his first multi-hit game. Lagares came into the contest batting .139 (5 for 36) in his first 17 games.


Mets planning rotation in center field


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2013) The Mets added another player to their carousel in the outfield Monday, signing free agent Rick Ankiel and immediately popping him into the starting lineup at center field. New York manager Terry Collins said Ankiel will be part of a platoon in center with the veteran slugger starting against right-handed pitchers and Juan Lagares taking over versus southpaws.
