      Mets' Juan Lagares: Will not need elbow surgery

      Lagares' elbow examination Wednesday confirmed that he will not need surgery, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports. Lagares played 2015 with a partially torn elbow ligament. Surgery was a possible option though he will now rest the elbow this winter rather than undergoing an operation. That injury resulted in the Mets advising Lagares to be cautious in the field, especially when throwing. With Yoenis Cespedes expected to sign elsewhere and Lagares' much better numbers against southpaws, the Mets will likely look to sign or acquire a left-handed bat to face righties.

      Mets' Juan Lagares: Precautionary elbow examination Wednesday

      Lagares will have his elbow examined Wednesday, but he's not expected to need surgery, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports. Lagares mainly played against right-handed pitchers in 2015, recording just 121 of his 441 at-bats against southpaws, but he was able to improve upon his home run total from last season, albeit not greatly (he hit four home runs in 2014). Assuming his elbow examination goes as expected, Lagares will likely be a full contributor in spring training next season, but it remains to be seen how much playing time he may receive with the Mets unlikely to retain Yoenis Cespedes during the offseason.
