Juan Lagares playing through pain for Mets
Lagares has a rib injury that is causing him pain, but it shouldn't get aggravated by him staying in the lineup. He also has an elbow injury that has bothered him since spring training.
"He's not going to get worse," manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "That's the one thing we know. This rib issue is not going to get worse. They said it's going to gradually get better as you move into the season. If you can play through the discomfort and the symptoms of it all, you'll be OK. He's tried to. The biggest issue is more the elbow than anything else. Because he's made some throws, some big throws lately. That's what we're trying to monitor."
