UPDATE: September 17 –
Terry Collins said that Lagares will miss a few games and then be reevaluated.
According to Lagares, he’s been dealing with “dull” pain in the elbow this month, bot nothing as painful as last night.
Lagares dealt with a similar issue in 2007 while he was with Low-A Savannah.
Lagares left Monday night’s game prior to the fifth inning with what the club called a hyperxtended right elbow.
UPDATE: 10:29 PM –
Mets manager Terry Collins said that he doesn’t believe Lagares’ injury is serious. Collins noted that Lagares had the same issue roughly 10 days ago during the team’s three-game series in Cincinnati.
Lagares had fielded a liner by Jarrod Saltalamacchia on a short-hop in the top of the fourth and fired to second to get the force out. Nothing appeared wrong with Lagares after the play, and his spot in the lineup didn’t come up again before he was removed from the game.
