Mets News: Juan Lagares to DL, Nieuwenhuis recalled
The Mets have officially put OF Juan Lagares on the 15 day DL with a strained hamstring and have recalled OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis.
Lagares was leading the Mets in Avg (.314), second in OBP (.345), second Slugging PCT (.471).
Chris Young is expected to come off the DL on Friday, so if Granderson is not ready to play on Tuesday, that leaves the Mets with Eric Young, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Andrew Brown, and of course Lucas Duda for emergency use.
Terry Collins might have to use both Ike Davis and Lucas Duda in the lineup
