Mets | Juan Lagares to be given short run in CF

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares will be given a two-day audition in center field over OF Rick Ankiel, but the starts are more likely to be based off of pitching matchups more than anything. Manager Terry Collins thinks that Lagares needs to lay off more pitches outside the strike zone to be effective in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares' next two starts might go a long way in determining if they send him down and recall Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who has picked it up with the bat at Triple-A Las Vegas. Nieuwenhuis could come up and challenge Ankiel for playing time in center field.
