Adam Rubin of ESPN NY writes that Juan Lagares‘ rehab tour has shifted to Double-A Binghamton, and the Mets are eyeing Thursday for the center fielder’s activation from the disabled list.

Rubin adds that a team insider acknowledged Chris Young‘s “days are numbered” with the organization, which is prepared to eat the remainder of this year’s $7.25 million salary. The internal debate at this point centers on whether to pull the trigger this week, but it’s definitely being seriously weighed, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Young is hitting .201 with four homers and 17 RBIs in 179 at-bats this season.

Rubin adds that Collins could start Young against left-handers Scott Kazmir and Brad Mills during the two-game midweek Oakland Athletics series, which could be the ex-Diamondback’s last chance to save his job.
