Juan Lagares underwent surgery Monday to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.

He's going to need at least six weeks of rest and rehab, which obviously puts the rest of his season in jeopardy. Lagares tried to play through the injury for a bit before finally deciding to go under the knife. He was placed on the disabled list at the end of July.

The Mets are expected to place Juan Lagares on the disabled list to make room for Brandon Nimmo on the active roster.

Lagares has been trying to play through a torn ligament in his left thumb but it's clear he isn't 100 percent. He's been holding off on surgery but that might have to be revisited given how little progress he's made. With Lagares and Yoenis Cespedes (quad) both banged up, the Mets could be in the market for an outfielder at the trade deadline.

Mets activated OF Juan Lagares from the 15-day disabled list.

He's expected to rejoin the Mets lineup on Saturday. Lagares missed the past two weeks due to a sprained ligament in his left thumb. Prior to landing on the shelf, he was hitting .289/.326/.433 with two homers and six RBI in 48 games.

Jul 2 - 2:07 PM

Juan Lagares (thumb) will be activated from the disabled list no later than Sunday.

Jul 1 - 4:16 PM

Mets GM Sandy Alderson says Juan Lagares (thumb) could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Lagares went on the disabled list a couple weeks ago with a sprained left thumb. So far he's recorded three hits in his first two rehab games for Double-A Binghamton. Before the injury, Lagares was hitting .289 with two homers in 90 at-bats. He could see regular playing time with Curtis Granderson still recovering from a strained calf.
Jun 30 - 5:15 PM

Juan Lagares (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

He's expected to be joined by the newly-signed Jose Reyes, who will move up from Low-A Brooklyn on Tuesday. Lagares has been sidelined since June 14 with a sprained left thumb and still hopes to avoid surgery.
Jun 27 - 5:49 PM

Juan Lagares (thumb) has resumed baseball activities at the Mets' spring training complex.

Jun 26 - 12:06 PM

Juan Lagares would miss about two months if he opts for surgery on his injured thumb.

The Mets are going to see how he feels in 10 days before making a decision. Lagares was finally sent to the disabled list Thursday after missing seven of the last 11 games. With Lagares on the shelf, Alejandro De Aza will function as the team's fourth outfielder.
Jun 16 - 11:14 PM

Juan Lagares will see how his thumb responds to rest before deciding on surgery.

Lagares tried to play through a painful thumb injury but only lasted a couple weeks before landing on the disabled list. Surgery remains an option but for now the Mets are hoping rest will do the trick. Ty Kelly was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas Thursday to take his place on the active roster.
Jun 16 - 8:53 PM

Mets placed OF Juan Lagares on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb.

Lagares toughed it out for a while but the ligament he tore in his thumb earlier this month is clearing hurting him and now he'll get at least 15 days to rest up. The Mets called up Ty Kelly from Triple-A Las Vegas in the corresponding roster move.
Jun 16 - 6:43 PM

Juan Lagares (thumb) was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup.

Lagares missed Tuesday's game against the Pirates due to a toothache (though he did pinch-hit in that one). His dental woes are pesky, but more concerning is the torn ligament in his left thumb. That is what is keeping him out of Wednesday's showdown. He initially injured it on June 4 while making a diving catch. Yoenis Cespedes shifts over to center in his place.
