Sources: Juan Lagares agrees to 4-year, $23 million extension with Mets

Outfielder Juan Lagares agreed to a four-year, $23 million extension with the New York Mets that includes a club option to buy out one season of free agency, major league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The 26-year-old Lagares is best known for his brilliant defense in center field, and the Mets are hopeful his bat catches up. In his two major league seasons, Lagares has hit .262/.302/.368.

The contract, which will be official after a Thursday physical, starts in 2016, at which point Lagares likely would have been eligible for arbitration as a Super 2. The first year calls for a $2.5 million salary, followed by years at $4.5 million, $6.5 million and $9 million, sources said, and the option is for $9.5 million, with a $500,000 buyout.
