Juan Lagares 6 (Baron)

Lagares running, but no timetable on return

Juan Lagares is running, but there is no timetable for his return from the disabled list, Terry Collins said on Tuesday.

Lagares is feeling ‘much better,’ he said in a post to Instagram on Monday (Lagares, Apr. 21).

Lagares was put on the 15-day disabled list with a tight hamstring last week. He later said he expects to be 100 percent within one to two weeks (Star-Ledger, Apr. 16).

Lagares is eligible to return from the disabled list on May 1.

349 comments and counting on Matt Harvey's "Fingergate", and 10 on Lagares' rehab.

Take your time and get healthy, no need to rush back this early in the season. Make sure you're 100% for sure we don't need a repeat of Jose Reyes with the hamstring injuries.

like keith always says, when the player feels their hamstring is ready, give it another week..i think the mets have to do this with jlag.  it is still early in the year and they are fighting through without him for now but you do not wanna risk losing him for half the year or the whole year. an extra week will not kill us

If he is running, why would they need a timetable?  Just activate him on May 1!  Not like he is recovering from surgery. If he can run, he can play... just like CY did. 


This should just be common sense.

How do you know if the injury is the same severity?

@helloboy Ah...but Chris Young is the issue. they need Cy to get ABs and prove he's the "power" hitter they signed. Remember? Terry thinks he can hit 20-25 HRs. Sandy thinks he's better than his stats. So, he has to play.

It's all office politics.

@helloboy Stop making sense.  You're going to make Baron's head explode.

@rstpigeon  If I hadn't pulled my hamstring for the first time in HS, I would agree with this cynicism.  But that is an injury, especially when you use your legs a lot (base stealer or CFer), that will linger or worse..reoccur easier than not.   I say while the Mets are doing a good job treading water without him, let him take an extra few days to a week.
