Mets alter lineup with Curtis Granderson getting day off
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals for the first time in 10 games. With Granderson out of the starting lineup, center fielder Juan Lagares moved into the leadoff spot for the third time this season.

That wasn't the only change to the lineup manager Terry Collins made. He moved shortstop Wilmer Flores into the second spot in the batting order. Flores has started to improve offensively, batting .262 with a .524 slugging percentage, two doubles, three home runs and seven RBI in his last 11 games.

Third baseman Eric Campbell, who hit second the last four games, was moved to seventh in the lineup.

Mets OF Juan Lagares trying to emerge from hitting slump
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Juan Lagares hit safely for a fourth straight game Tuesday against the Cardinals, but it still hasn't been enough to break him out of a hitting slump that has lasted for a couple of weeks. Lagares is batting just .152 (7 for 46) in his last 11 games, which has dropped his average from .324 to .270.

While Lagares was hitting for a high average as of early May, there still hasn't been a lot of progress in his offensive game. He has just five extra-base hits, 13 RBI and a .617 OPS in 37 games. He also has 33 strikeouts.

“Maybe he’s trying too hard to command [the strike zone],” Mets hitting coach Kevin Long said, per the New York Post. “At this point, he’s [gone] a little bit backwards, but he’ll keep working at it. He’ll get it right.”

Mets manager Terry Collins feels Lagares' recent struggles might be related to a game-winning home run he hit May 9 against the Phillies. 

“He’s got to work extra hard at using the whole field to hit, not worry about driving any baseballs,” Collins said.

Lagares missed a few games last week due to a torso injury. Lagares said the injury isn't a factor and he remains a confident hitter despite his offensive slump.

“I try to come back to the approach I was [using] before,” Lagares said. “The only thing you can control is keep working hard and try to do the best you can out there.”

Mets' Eric Campbell batting second, Juan Lagares ninth Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets third baseman Eric Campbell is batting second in Sunday's matchup with the Brewers, with center fielder Juan Lagares slotted ninth behind the pitcher.

Campbell, who has hit just .218/.328/.345 in 55 at-bats with the Mets, is making his second straight start after joining the team in the wake of the injury to second baseman Dilson Herrera, which has shifted Daniel Murphy back to second base. Lagares has hit second on most days since the injuries to David Wright and Travis d'Arnaud, but he'll be making his first start lower than second since April 25.

The Mets are favorites (-130) at home Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Juan Lagares returns to starting lineup for Mets on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as center fielder Juan Lagares is back in the starting lineup on Friday. Lagares has missed the last three games due to soreness in his right side, but he'll be back in the No. 2 spot in the batting order against the Brewers. 

The Gold-Glove winner is hitting .276 on the season and has made countless highlight reel-type catches in the outfield.

Juan Lagares (side) still can't start for Mets on Thursday vs. Cubs
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets center fielder Juan Lagares is out of the starting lineup for the third straight game on Thursday. Lagares has been dealing with pain on his side after making a diving catch last week in New York.

Curtis Granderson will move over to center field for manager Terry Collins on Thursday. It's the first time he's played there this season. John Mayberry will get the start in right field where Granderson normally plays. 

Collins has said Lagares is expected to be back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Brewers.

"Last night obviously was cold and he was still a little stiff, but he felt better," Collins said, per ESPN.com. "You're just saying, 'Geez, nine hours from now we've got to be back here. How much better can it be in nine hours? ... If you give him 30 hours, there might be a significant improvement. Will it be 100 percent [Friday]? Probably not. But it will be a hecukva lot more improved that I don't know if he'll aggravate it as much as he would if he dove for a ball today and jarred himself again."
