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."
