Juan Lagares is feeling “much better”

By Danny Abriano

Mets center fielder Juan Lagares, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a pulled right hamstring on April 15, tweeted Monday that he’s feeling “much better.”

After getting the MRI results of his hamstring back last week, Lagares said he should be able to return to action in one to two weeks.

Lagares is eligible to return from the disabled list on April 30.


Right before injuring his hamstring, Lagares had solidified himself as the full time center fielder.

Lagares suffered the injury a few days before Chris Young was activated from the disabled list, and manager Terry Collins said that he planned to rotate all of his outfielders – with the exception of Curtis Granderson.

When Lagares returns, any idea Collins had of rotating all of his outfielders besides Granderson needs to be scrapped.

Lagares needs to play every day, no questions asked.
