Latest Update Lagares hopes to resume baseball activities in a week or two Thu Nov, 06, 09:59 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.
Lagares was shut down early due to elbow soreness but should begin ramping up his 2015 preparation in a few weeks. He is a phenomenal defender in center field, but still needs to put a lot of work in to be a good hitter. He has some speed and will put it to use, so remember him next season when you're drafting in your NL-Only league.Analyst: David Kerr
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
This is not a huge surprise, as Lagares was expected to miss a few games. He should be back before the end of the season, but there is no reason to hold onto him until then.Analyst: Steve Pimental
