Juan Lagares

Granderson, Lagares both leave game with injury

Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares were both removed from Monday night’s game with injuries.

Granderson ran into the outfield fence in the first inning, tracking a fly ball. He stayed in the game for a few innings, even picking up an RBI single, but was later removed. The Mets said he has left rib cage, knee and forearm contusions. X-rays will be taken on Monday night.

Lagares grabbed his hamstring after beating out a double play in the seventh inning. He stayed in for a pitch before being removed. Lagares had a right hamstring strain, the Mets said.

Andrew Brown took over in right field for Granderson, and Lagares’ injury forced Lucas Duda into left field, with Eric Young Jr. shifting over to center. Duda hadn’t played in the outfield since June 2013.

Chris Young, who is rehabbing from injury in the minors, isn’t eligible to return from the disabled list until April 18.

Lagares needs to take the appropriate amount of time to heal and not rush back.

You aren't accident prone when you get hit by pitchers....or when you do your job and run for a ball. The Yankees never respected him for who he is....a Class A positive player. Give the guy a chance.

Whatever the extent of the injuries, we can count on the Mets medical staff, coaches and front office to make them worse.

Man oh man, please don't give TC another reason to platoon EY and Lagares. During the broadcast, Gary said TC stated that they both will get time in CF. I wonder how the f#$@ is that possible. Lagares is the best player right now and he very well may be for the rest of the yr. How can TC even suggest such a move. Please let Lagares have a mild strain with a few days of rest, that's all.

I have never understood why hamstring injuries are so much more prevalent in baseball than other sports. Is it because they go from long periods of stand still to running full speed?

On the broadcast they said that Granderson's xrays were negative so thats good new at least


Lagares's hammy had no updates though

Thats grandersons m.o. thats why the Yankees didn't offer him a big contract. He is an accident prone fragile man. Shame about lagares.

That's a shame lagares has been the best player on the field both sides of the ball since game one. Hopefully it was a leg cramp and he is back soon. If Grandy or him goes down do not put duda in outfield. Bring up capt k. He is best hitter right now in AAA and can play all three positions.

ribcage, knee and forearm contusions? man, he really did a number on himself...let's hope the x-rays are negative. he didn't look bad in his at bat after the injury, swinging and running to first.

Every year it seems it gets debated what happens when so and so gets back from injury and it almost never fails that they don't have to worry about that because either that guy gets reinjured and doesn't come back and/or someone else gets hurt before they ever do to make room.

Fingers crossed that this was just precautionary

Yea this sucks. They bothed look pretty bad. Grandy messed up his wrist and lagares pulled a hammy. I'm sure they both go to the DL

Man if the Jason Bay comparisons weren't going to be easy enough to make as it is Grandy has to go out and get hurt running into the OF fence

If it wasn't for bad luck, the Mets would have none.

@Brandon Hillman If they both need to miss time though you may see Duda in the OF at least till CY can come back

@Victor Triguero  hamstrings are always scary especially with the Mets medical staff. remember Wright last year?

@Victor Triguero In what world is a hamstring strain just mean 1 day off especially for the Mets? Were you around when Reyes was here?

I'd prefer Captain Kirk especially since he can play CF
