      Juan Lagares: Parts ways with Mets

      Juan Lagares was granted his release Monday after refusing his outright assignment to the Mets' alternate training site, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.With two other defensive-minded center fielders ahead of him in the pecking order in Jake Marisnick and Billy Hamilton, Lagares was deemed expendable by the Mets, who designated him for assignment last week. Though he went unclaimed off waivers, Lagares decided to try his luck in another organization rather than returning to the Mets' alternate training site. He could resurface in the majors in September if other teams are in need of experienced outfield depth.

      Mets' Juan Lagares: Back with Mets on minors deal

      Juan Lagares signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets on Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.Lagares had spent his entire professional career, which began back in 2006, in the Mets' organization before joining the Padres on a minor-league deal in February. He elected free agency after failing to make the team's 60-man player pool and is now back in his original big-league home. He'll fill a depth role for the Mets once he's back in game shape, though he may be behind Jake Marisnick as the team's fourth outfielder.

      Padres' Juan Lagares: Roster status in limbo

      Juan Lagares was competing for a spot on Opening Day roster before spring training was suspended, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. He has the option to opt out of his contract if he does not make the 26-man roster, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.San Diego signed Lagares to a minor-league deal Feb. 10 that included an opt-out clause slated to kick in if he was not placed on the 26-man roster by March 19. That date has come and gone, but MLB's decision to suspend spring training and delay the start of the regular season per a March 12 announcement has negated the significance of the original deadline, which was set for one week prior to Opening Day. Lagares didn't make much of a case for a roster spot prior to the suspension of play as he slashed a paltry .185/.267/.185 across 30 Cactus League plate appearances.
