The Mets announced that Juan Lagares will rejoin the team on Saturday after a brief rehab assignment for a partially torn ligament in his left thumb. The team indicated, however, that it is not yet determined whether Lagares will be activated Saturday or Sunday. Lagares is not due to be in the starting lineup until Sunday, when he will face Jon Lester, Terry Collins said. Lagares went 6-for-18 with a triple and two RBIs with Binghamton.
