Latest Update Lagares will avoid surgery on his elbow and go through rehab instead. Tue Sep, 23, 04:06 PM
Is an exceptionally good defensive outfielder, capable of covering the ground in center field. Can also run fairly well on the bases and displays the ability to hit for average. Will knock one over the fence from time to time.
Flaws: : Needs to draw more walks in order to become a better offensive player. Doesn't have big-time power and gets caught stealing a few too many times. Therefore, his batting skills may be somewhat limited.
With the offseason coming, this seems like an odd decision as he could eliminate the problem, rehab through the offseason and pick things back up at spring training. Instead, he'll just rehab it and hope that the problem doesn't come back which seems like an unnecessary risk.Analyst: Howard Bender

Lagares does not have a whole lot of fantasy value anyway, though if you are in a deep enough league that you own him, you may as well hold onto him.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Lagares left the game after four innings and now we know why. At this point in the season, it wouldn't be shocking if he were shut down. We should know more about Lagares' condition on Wednesday.Analyst: David Kerr
