Source: Mets' Lagares likely back to the DL

With a partially torn ligament in his left thumb that may require surgey, the New York Mets will call up Brandon Nimmo and likely put Juan Lagares on the disabled list, a source tells ESPN.

Hearing that Juan Lagares to the disabled list is the most likely roster move to clear the roster spot for Brandon Nimmo. That's bad news for Lagares. He appears headed for surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his left thumb.

Brandon Nimmo is returning to the Mets from Las Vegas. The move gives the team a lefty-hitting center fielder, which could lessen the need to use Michael Conforto at the position. The corresponding move is not yet clear, but Yoenis Cespedes is dealing with a balky quadriceps and Jose Reyes has an intercostal strain on his left side.

Details of Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract with the Jets: Technically, it's a two-year contract with a voidable. Five days after the Super Bowl, it voids to one year. The two-year structure allows them to spread the signing bonus ($10M) over two years. His base salary is $2M, meaning his cap charge is $7M. There will be a $5M dead charge in 2017. (Per Adam Schefter).

Jets QB Geno Smith is handling the situation remarkably well. He said he's "pissed off" because he's a competitor but he's not mad at the team or anyone in particular. Smith was upbeat, saying he sees 2016 as an audition for 31 other teams. No complaining from him.
