Lagares ready for return to Flushing

After storming onto the scene in 2013 hitting .242 with 4 HR and 35 RBI for the New York Mets, Juan Lagares returns to Binghamton for a quick rehab stint on his return to the bigs.  Lagares set the New York Mets franchise record for outfield assists as a rookie with 15 last season.  Where many free agents or prospects fail in handling the attention and the spotlight of playing in the country's biggest city, Lagares has so far succeeded.  His rehab assignment in Binghamton is just another chance for him to play his game and do what he does best.

Part of Lagares' emergence into the bigs was due in part to the instruction of B-Mets manager Pedro Lopez who coached Lagares in parts of four seasons including 2012 in Binghamton.  Lagares said it's very important to him, and many other young Latino players to have a Spanish speaking manager as they tend to have difficulties with English early in their career.
