Juan Lagares unlikely to return to lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares is unlikely to return to the lineup Sunday after being scratched with a ribcage issue Saturday, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

The injury is toward the back of the outfielder's ribcage rather than on the side, where swinging the bat is generally more of an issue. He did make an appearance as a pinch hitter Saturday, laying down a sacrifice bunt.

"He did a lot of treatment during the game," manager Terry Collins said. "In about the 12th [inning] he went in the cage to try to swing and still felt it. So I said stop swinging."

Terry Collins: Juan Lagares 'is the center fielder'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins got a little upset Sunday when asked what outfielder Juan Lagares has to do to become an everyday player. Lagares started for a second straight day after sitting in four of the previous five games.

"He has been an everyday player. He got into a little bit of a funk," Collins said, per ESPN. "You know, it's not like I sat him for seven days. I sat him for two days, for cripes sake. We get a little carried away here. Somebody gets a day off and it's like the sky is falling in. It's not. He's the center fielder. 

"In my opinion, this is what the market is here. If I give Grandy (Curtis Granderson) a day off, he's 'benched.' If I give C.Y. (Chris Young) a day off, he's 'benched.' If I give Juan a day off, he's 'benched.' That's not really the case. I know you've got to sell newspapers, so do what you've got to say. But when I come in here every day and figure out who has got to be in the lineup, somebody can't play. And today somebody is not going to play. I don't get too bent out of shape about it, because I know in the long run, after the next 120 games, they're all going to [have] play[ed]."

Following the victory, manager Terry Collins told reporters Lagares will play again on Sunday.

Juan Lagares will start Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares will start Saturday, according to ESPN.

Lagares has started just once this week despite performing well in limited duty. He's hit .296 over 98 at-bats, and is considered an elite defensive player. Mets fans have been clamoring for Lagares to receive more playing time, and it looks like he'll get a chance Saturday.


Juan Lagares sits again Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares was on the bench again Friday.

Lagares has started just one game this week. He's sat in favor of Eric Young Jr. Lagares has hit .296 over 98 at-bats, and is considered one of the best defensive outfielders in the game. 


Mets name Juan Lagares everyday center fielder


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins labeled outfielder Juan Lagares the "everyday" center fielder, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"He's going to be out there the majority of the time. He's got to be," Collins said about Lagares. "He's the future. He's shown that he's getting better at it. When he starts hitting .195 we'll have to take a look and get him out of there. But, right now, he's getting on base. He's doing all the things you want. People don't score on him when he's got the baseball in his hand. He, right now, would be our everyday guy. Again, due to the fact he's had some issues in the past with his leg, including this year, even though it hasn't been necessarily a pulled muscle, we're probably going to give him a day off here and there."

Lagares has hit .333/.359/.517 with one home run and eight RBI in 60 at-bats.
