Mets' Collins not yet ready to name Juan Lagares leadoff hitter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday he is not yet ready to name Juan Lagares the leadoff hitter, per ESPN. He will continue to evaluate the lineup through the weekend, but mentioned Lagares has shown he can handle the leadoff spot.

Lagares, who reportedly is in talks with the Mets on a four-year, $23 million contract extension, is batting .345 with a .400 on-base percentage, one triple, three home runs, six doubles, six RBI, 13 runs and one stolen base in 18 spring games.

Mets' Lagares in talks about four-year, $20M-plus contract extension
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Juan Lagares confirmed Wednesday he is in discussions about a contract extension, but nothing has been finalized. He added he wants to sign before Monday's season opener against the Nationals, per NJ.com.

Baseball insider Jim Bowden was the first to report Wednesday that Lagares has agreed to a four-year contract extension, which includes a club option. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirmed Lagares is in talks with the Mets.

ESPN and Yahoo Sports report the contract is for $23 million, and the team option is for $9.5 million ($500,000 buyout). The contract covers all of Lagares' arbitration years and the team option covers his first year of free agency in 2020.

Lagares is considered one of the best defensive center fielders in the majors. Although, his offense is not quite up to par. Lagares has a career .262/.302/.368/.669 slash line over two seasons in the majors. He is having a good spring at the plate, however, batting .345 (19 for 55) with one triple, three home runs, six doubles, six RBI and 13 runs in 18 games.

Juan Lagares inching closer to securing leadoff role for Mets?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Juan Lagares has performed well offensively through the first few weeks of the spring training schedule. He is batting .407 (11 for 27) with a .467 on-base percentage, .593 slugging percentage, 1.059 OPS, one triple, three doubles, three walks, five runs and one RBI in nine games.

Despite his strong showing at the plate, Mets manager Terry Collins isn't ready to name Lagares the team's leadoff hitter.

“We haven’t really decided yet,” Collins said, per the New York Post. “I think he’s done a great job. He’s worked very hard on it. … We sure like the progress he’s made.”

Mets' Juan Lagares taking it easy with his elbow
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Juan Lagares is taking it easy with his elbow thus far, according to MLB.com.

Lagares missed the final two weeks of 2014 due to an elbow injury, but said he doing well now. "I feel great right now," Lagares said. "I feel 100 percent. I just want to take it easy -- not easy, but I don't want to throw everything I've got right now."

Lagares has had opportunities to throw out some base-runners this spring, but has erred on the side of caution. Manager Terry Collins said he's completely fine with that strategy. 

"He did it the right way and I'm real proud of him," Collins said. "He could have sent a message to everybody -- 'Look, I'm fine.' And he was smart enough to say, 'I'll worry about it in April.'"

Lagares, 25, hit .281/.321/.382 over 416 at-bats last year.
