JUAN LAGARES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Featured Post: Top 5 Underrated Mets Hitting Prospects

The top prospects of every minor league system always seem to receive endless amounts of hype.

Mets360 2014 Projection Review: Juan Lagares

Next up in our projection review series – just to see how we did and how wacky some of our projections were – is Juan Lagares. Lagares opened a lot of eyes in 2013 with his outstanding defense, but no one was quite sure what he would do with the bat. The least optimistic of us saw a Cesar Geronimo-type player, with less foot speed. Here’s what our projection looked like...

Did Juan Lagares earn management’s trust in 2014?

There are conflicting reports as to the severity of the injury to Juan Lagares. There’s not a ton to be gained by having him rush back this year as earlier Sandy Alderson made it clear that Terry Collins is not going to be judged on what happens the last dozen games of the season. The prudent thing would be to shake his hand on a successful year and let Kirk Nieuwenhuis get...

Where Exactly Did Juan Lagares Come From?

Juan Lagares has been a saving grace this year for the Mets. Sure he’s saved a ton of runs and seems to shrink the outfield day after day but the true saving grace for Mets fans has been him saving the 2014 season.

New York Mets: is Juan Lagares’ glove golden?

I predicted at the beginning of this season that Juan Lagares would finish in the top 10 in Gold Glove voting. As it turns out, he has a chance to do significantly better than that. New York Mets fans are all aware of Lagares’ defensive wizardry. Nationally, however he isn’t the first name to anyone’s lips despite what the statistics may show. Lagares’ defensive prowess does...
