Angels' Juan Lagares: Signs minor-league deal with Angels
Lagares signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Sunday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Lagares appeared in 112 major-league games with the Angels last year and hit .236 with six homers, 39 runs, 38 RBI and a stolen base. He'll likely head to Triple-A Salt Lake to begin his return to the organization, but he'll be an option to provide outfield depth at some point.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Juan Lagares: Knocks in two in win
Lagares went 2-for-4 with a single, a double and two RBI in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Rangers.
Lagares came through with a pair of big hits for the Halos on Wedneday, smacking an RBI double in the second before cashing in another run with a base hit in the sixth. Due to a September slump that has seen Lagares hit just .200, the outfielder has lost some playing time to Jose Rojas. With free agency approaching yet again for the 32-year-old, he's a candidate to be wearing a different uniform come 2022.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Juan Lagares: Hits sixth homer
Lagares went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's loss to Houston.
The outfielder's fifth-inning solo shot to center field pulled the Angels into a 1-1 tie, but the offense was unable to muster any additional runs. Though he isn't known as a power hitter, Lagares has gone deep three times in his past eight games. He's batting a meager .182 (4-for-22) over that span, however.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Juan Lagares: Goes deep in loss
Lagares went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday in a loss to San Diego.
The Padres threatened to win the game in a blowout, but Lagares' two-run shot in the seventh inning started a mini-rally by the Angels and made the final score respectable. The veteran outfielder has never been much of a power threat, and his five homers on the season are just one short of his career high set in 2015 with the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Juan Lagares: Goes deep Saturday
Lagares went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in Saturday's 4-1 triumph against the Rangers.
Lagares opened the game's scoring with his third-inning solo blast to left, though he struck out in his other two at-bats. The long ball was the 32-year-old's second in his last seven games --the same as his total from his first 84 -- and he should see more playing time if he continues to hit well, especially with Justin Upton battling injuries lately....

It was his first three-hit game since August of 2019 as he raised his slash line to .245/.271/.371 with 23 extra-base hits, 30 RBI, 33 runs scored, a steal and 2:54 BB:K over 256 plate appearances. Lagares will have to fight for playing time in a crowded outfield between Justin Upton, Brandon Marsh, Jo Adell and Phil Gosselin.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Juan Lagares: Swats homer Tuesday
Lagares went 2-for-5 with a home run, an additional run scored and three total RBI in a 14-8 win over the Orioles on Tuesday.
Lagares capped the Angels' five-run second inning with a two-run homer to center field and knocked in another run with a single in the fourth frame. He has been mostly filling a reserve role of late -- prior to Tuesday, he had logged only three at-bats and hadn't gotten a hit since Aug. 17.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Juan Lagares: Headed for reserve role
Lagares is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners and is expected to move into a bench role.
The Angels promoted top prospect Brandon Marsh from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, and he's expected to immediately step in as Los Angeles' everyday center fielder. That will spell an end to Lagares' time as a regular, which wasn't especially fruitful for fantasy purposes. Even though he's currently in the midst of a five-game hitting streak, Lagares is still slashing a middling .226/.253/.353 on the season with only two home runs and one stolen base across 199 plate appearances....
