Juan Lagares On Fast Track To Stardom

Mets centerfielder Juan Lagares is already recognized as a defensive star, making one highlight reel catch after another game after game, and earning his first Gold Glove last season.

Do you have faith in Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares?

In the offseason the Mets showed a lot of faith in Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares. They showed faith in Flores by not acquiring a shortstop to compete with him for the starting job. And they showed faith in Lagares by trading away Matt den Dekker, the best choice to play center field if Lagares was ineffective. Remember just one year earlier, the Mets acquired Chris Young...

The Mets Go Defensive, Lock up Juan Lagares

With yesterday’s news that the Mets signed Juan Lagares to a new four-year, $23 million contract, another puzzle piece for the Mets’ future plans was put into place.

Juan Lagares needs to be himself, but walk more

Mets manager Terry Collins has made it clear that the leadoff spot in the lineup will come down to either Curtis Granderson or Juan Lagares. His preference, as of last week, is Lagares. That’s not much of a surprise considering Lagares is the only starter on the team with any kind of speed. The team would like him to take more advantage of that speed in the form of a more aggressive...

Mets360 2015 projections: Juan Lagares

In 2013, Juan Lagares had a terrific defensive season and a poor offensive one. The Mets were concerned enough that in the offseason they signed Chris Young and told him he’d have a chance to play some in center field. While Young bombed in 2014, Lagares was again terrific defensively. At the plate, he had a respectable .703 OPS (NL average CF: .726) thanks to a .341 BABIP...
