Juan Lagares cuts 1a

Juan Lagares played in a rehab game Friday

Juan Lagares was hitless in four at-bats, while playing seven innings in center field, during a rehab game with the Gulf Coast League Mets in Port St. Lucie on Friday.

Lagares has been on disabled list since June 2 with a strained intercostal muscle on his right side.

Multiple reports this week have said he is expected to return from the disabled list next week at Citi Field.

He's been eating all that Cuban food.

5 minutes til first pitch and still no post about tonight's game?  They must have tasked this site's proofreaders with that job tonight....

0-4. That instantly makes him our biggest offensive threat.

Slow and easy. Early batting practice with the team. Then looking at film. More batting practice. Substitute center fielder late in the game and he'll be set for full-time.

Does his impending return, turn Chris Young into "dead man walking"?

I didn't know he had a drug problem!

We need this man in the worst way in our lineup.  Then we can have speed at the top of the lineup:


LF - E Young JR

CF - Lagares

2B - Murphy

3B - Wright

RF - Granderson

1B - Duda

SS - Flores

C - d'Arnaud


Good bye Chris Young, don't let the door hit you in the Arse!!!

We need him back. So sick of CY and Abreu was here to be a lefty off the bench not play everyday. Pathetic that he's our cleanup hitter really is. What a joke. He's doing well it's a indictment on everyone else

Not needed. Just call it the same for both sides.

Seems he's limping a tad

@MyIdolSeaver He'll just be another pretty trophy for TC to cement on the bench,as he has done with Flores & Campbell. Really, what's the point of bringing these rookies up to the ML team if TC is  not going to play them regularly?.

@Joe Wenzel Im a big Kirk fan and its so frustrating that he can't figure it out up here, hes got speed power and hes an above average outfielder

Where would he play?

@Joe Wenzel I thought with the righty he'd play, and honestly he may have had that ball in the first

Early in the game, have faith, we should get a hit or two by the 8th

Didn't shy away on that that was a legit hit maybe a younger guy gets it however

Is anyone home to post the lineup and game post Cerrone?

Does that include Wheeler and Gee in a package?

Good question. Why hasn't anyone kept score on Alderson's alleged 'promise' to CY for a minimum number of at-bats? Once that number is reached, does that mean Alderson is longer honor-bound to keep CY on the team? Only Alderson knows what his intentions are. It's a complete mystery to everyone else.

I just pray Juan is not going to be a perpetual fragile player. He is exciting when he is playing!

Too high on the wall for anyone except someone 6'9" or so

@Eric Hack @Father Dooley As Herman Munster would say:

"Darn, Darn, Darn, Darn, Darn, Darn, Darn!!!!"

If he was playing, he'd probably be in CF, and Grandy would be in RF. Kirk's likely not here for long anyway.

Why not? Then our entire outfield can be hitting under .230.

I believe you're right.

I gotta agree...he would cost a lot but it would be worth it....there is nobody in the organization that I wouldn't trade

@Father Dooley Do you think he is playing because of the .333 on base pct last night. He was intentionally walked for the pitcher to hit.

He hits which only a couple of our guys can do.

Flores? He's not a shortstop. He's been tried at other positions because he's not a fielder. Why is this difficult for you? They want defense at short. Or are we referring to Nieuwenheis?

Nieuwenheis is a .220 hitter and has been one since May of 2012. He started fast then faded badly.
