Juan Lagares likely done for the season

New York Mets outfielder Juan Lagares will likely miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on his left big toe, the team announced Friday. An MRI revealed a complete tear of the big toe plantar plate, which is a thick supporting ligament of the toe.

Fantasy Impact

Lagares was more valuable to the Mets than he was to fantasy owners, but he was having a strong season. Through his first 59 at-bats, Lagares was batting .339 with six RBIs, nine runs scored, and three stolen bases.

Juan Lagares powers Mets to rout of Blue Jays with four hits and three RBI

Juan Lagares finished 4-for-5 with a triple, two runs scored, three RBI and a stolen base in New York's 12-2 win over Toronto.

Fantasy Impact

Lagares pretty much did it all, stuffing the stat sheet with all sorts of fantasy treats. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, it's unlikely to sustain as he rarely plays against righties and his day actually doubled his RBI total on the year. In the deepest formats, he has value but that's really about it.

Juan Lagares does little batting first

With lefty pitcher Kyle Freeland on the mound, the New York Mets used Juan Lagares as their leadoff hitter. He had one hit in four at-bats, while score a run.

Fantasy Impact

Riding a six game losing streak, the Mets tried to shake things up by letting Lagares hit lead off. Lagares has been productive in his limited time playing outfield for the Mets. For the season, he has a .319 average with three RBIs. He still has no value in season long formats, but does have punt value in DFS when the Mets play against a southpaw.

Juan Lagares with two hits

In his first start of the season, Lagares finished 2-for-4 with no runs and no RBIs.

Fantasy Impact

He hit seventh but was still effective in his lone start. He should start every other day for the New York Mets, especially if there's a left handed starter on the mound. Lagares would be a decent punt, platoon play in DFS when he gets a chance to start against a lefty starter.

Juan Lagares gets two hits and two strikeouts

Batting eighth in the lineup, Lagares finished 2-for-4 with his two hits and one run scored. He also had those two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

It was a tough matchup with ace Max Scherzer on the mound for the Washington Nationals, but Lagares was good enough to scrape those two hits. Unfortunately, he's still in a big slump, hitting only .100 in the past seven days. He'll likely continue to start for the New York Mets with one week left in the regular season.
