Mets | Juan Lagares in No. 2 slot

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 14:42:33 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares has been moved up to the No. 2 spot in the batting order after 3B David Wright (hamstring) and C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) have landed on the disabled list. Lagares will likely continue to hit in the spot, at least until Wright returns.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is more of a defensive-minded player, although he had encouraging signs last season while hitting .281 with four home runs and 47 RBI in 116 games. Lagares' fantasy value should be helped by the move to the top of the lineup, and it makes him a little more intriguing at FantasyScore as an outfield sleeper, especially against Atlanta Braves starter Trevor Cahill tonight.

Mets | Juan Lagares dropped in order

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:58:47 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares has been dropped from sixth in the lineup to seventh for the game Monday, April 13. He is off to a 4-for-25 (.160) start to the year with one RBI and six strikeouts. C Travis d'Arnaud traded spots with Lagares in the batting order. Lagares hit .359 with three home runs in 64 spring training at-bats, and manager Terry Collins said Lagares is a leadoff option when he's going well.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares' ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) breakout 2014 season gave fantasy owners hopes that he'd continue to progress offensively in 2015. So far, that hasn't been the case, and you should consider him a weak FantasyScore play until he shows signs of life at the bottom of the Mets order.

Mets | Juan Lagares having good spring

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 12:22:49 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares, who is the team's starting center fielder and leadoff hitter, entered the game Thursday, April 2, hitting .345 with three home runs in 58 at-bats in spring training after going 1-for-3 Wednesday, April 1.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) hit .281 with just four home runs and 13 stolen bases in 2014, so he's not exactly a force offensively. However, playing every day and hitting at the top of the lineup could help improve his numbers. He's not a strong daily option on opening day, though, going up against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals.

Mets | Juan Lagares signs extension

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 09:01:06 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares agreed to a long-term contract extension through the 2019 season with the team Wednesday, April 1. The deal includes an option for the following year, according to sources. Lagares will have all of his arbitration years covered, and the deal guarantees him $23 million from 2016 to 2019 and includes a $9.5 million team option for 2020.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is more of a defensive star than he is an offensive force. He hit .281 last season but only had four homers, and he won't fill up the stat sheet often for fantasy owners, which makes him mainly an asset in very deep mixed leagues and NL-only universes.

Mets | Juan Lagares likely in leadoff spot

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 15:44:23 -0800

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is the favorite to serve as the leadoff hitter this year, as that is where manager Terry Collins prefers the Gold Glove outfielder. Lagares was 1-for-2 with a double, walk and run scored hitting leadoff in spring action Wednesday, March 4.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares hit .281 with four home runs, 46 runs scored and 13 stolen bases in 116 games in 2014. In standard 12-team mixed leagues he can be avoided, but Lagares could be a valuable outfield option for NL-only leaguers in 2015.

Mets | Curtis Granderson likely to hit leadoff?

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:44:09 -0800

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson has no preference for where he hits in the lineup this year, and manager Terry Collins said Granderson's spot is "up in the air." Either Granderson or OF Juan Lagares will hit leadoff, with Collins favoring Granderson to avoid putting too much of a burden on Lagares. Granderson also downplayed the impact of the changes of the dimensions to Citi Field, although a team study showed that he would have hit nine extra homers with the new dimensions.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson could be a really nice value pick at the tail end of mixed league drafts this year. Hitting leadoff may hurt his RBI opportunities, but it'll also give him a chance to score more runs. The new Citi Field dimensions and prior history with new hitting coach Kevin Long could go a long way in helping him repeat a 20-homer season.
