Reyes aiming to add center fielder to his resume

The most recent Mets player to transition from shortstop to center field, Juan Lagares, did it as successfully as just about anyone in history. Once so bedeviled that he committed 40 errors in 82 games as a Minor League shortstop, Lagares moved to center and won a Gold Glove Award seven years later.

Should the New York Mets trade Juan Lagares?

Almost all of the talk this offseason surrounding the New York Mets has been about the situation in the outfield. The Mets have four players for three positions. Once Yoenis Cespedes was locked into left field, everyone assumed that Jay Bruce would be traded, leaving Curtis Granderson in center field and Michael Conforto in right field. However, no team gave the Mets an offer they...

Report: Mets prefer to trade Bruce, not Conforto or Lagares

The New York Mets apparently have a strict preference as to which of their outfielders they would like to keep and which they would like to deal now that they have a surplus following the signing of Yoenis Cespedes. According to a report by Anthony DiComo of on Wednesday, the Mets are making it clear that they don’t intend to deal Michael Conforto or Juan Lagares and instead...

Platoon in center negates Juan Lagares’ best asset

As of this writing the Mets remain on the periphery of the Yoenis Cespedes market, and there’s a non-zero chance they land him. That would be rather surprising, though. Instead, it’s more likely that the team goes to war in 2016 with their current outfield alignment and perhaps another yet-to-be-signed backup. That means a platoon in center field featuring Juan Lagares and...

Mets Receiving Trade Inquiries On Juan Lagares, But Unlikely To Deal Him

Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that the Mets are unlikely to deal Juan Lagares even though they have received several trade inquiries on him recently. Lagares, 26, took a major step backwards this year as he hit .259/.289/.358 with a 80 wRC+ in 465 plate appearances. He eventually lost his starting job in centerfield after the team acquired Yoenis Cespedes over the summer...

Mets360 2015 projection review: Juan Lagares

In April of this year, the Mets signed Juan Lagares to a five-year deal with an option.  It was quite a change from a year previously when Chris Young was brought in for insurance.  The insurance route turned out to be a disaster and the “all eggs in the Lagares basket” didn’t work out exactly as planned, either.  Lagares couldn’t throw, he didn’t make the fantastic...

When it comes to Juan Lagares, expect the unexpected

The Mets are in a race for the playoffs and most nights Juan Lagares is on the bench. It’s not something most of us, much less his avid supporters, pictured coming into the season. Yet, viewed within the roller coaster ride that’s been his career with the Mets, it makes perfect sense. Lagares’ rise to the majors was anything but typical and his career path continues to...

The State of Juan Lagares’ Defense

Among the many complains of Mets fans at the moment is that the defense hasn’t been doing enough to support a pitching staff that carries the burden of trying to do everything. It stands to reason, if you’re going to be built first and foremost around run prevention, you’d want to do as much as […]
