Mets manager says Juan Lagares will be in lineup every day

“He’s going to be out there the majority of the time,” Collins said. “He’s got to be. That’s number one, he’s the future, and he’s shown he’s getting better at it. Looking up and when he starts hitting .195 we’ll have to take a look and get him out of there. Right now he’s getting on base, he’s doing all the things you want. People don’t score on him when he has the baseball in his hands, right now he would be our every day guy.”

It was the first time the manager has made that declaration about Lagares but it is deserved. In addition to his stellar defense, he has been the Mets best hitter this season. He leads the team with a .333 average and .876 OPS.

“He’s swinging very well and again this is a place where you want a premier center fielder to be in this ball park,” Collins said. “I’m going to leave him out there and hopefully keeps swinging the way he has been.”
