"I got the MRI today, but I don't have the answer back," Lagares said after landing on the disabled list, then watching the Mets' 9-0 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. "I think in the morning tomorrow. I hope it's nothing bad."

Lagares, who had been hitting .314 and on a nine-game hitting streak, said being sidelined even for the minimum 15 days would be difficult.

"I feel a little better," Lagares said. "At the same time, I feel bad, because I can't be out there. That's what we know to do -- just play baseball. When that happens, I just feel bad.

"I have to wait for the answer from the doctor," he continued. "I hope it's 15 [days] or less. ... I just want to make sure that I'm 100 percent. You know, I play center field. I have to cover a lot."
