Juan Lagares progressing in Florida
By Adam Rubin
NEW YORK -- Juan Lagares, who landed on the disabled list with a pulled right hamstring after departing an April 14 game in Arizona, is making progress. Terry Collins said Lagares already has taken at-bats in extended spring training games in Port St. Lucie, Fla., although not always running after making contact.
Collins said he is unsure if Lagares will return from the disabled list when he is eligible Wednesday, when the Mets will be completing a two-game series in Philadelphia. The manager mentioned Lagares first making a stop in Triple-A Las Vegas for rehab games, so it seems more likely Lagares will join the Mets sometime while they are in Denver for a four-game series that begins Thursday.
