Update (September 23rd, 2014)

Terry Collins announced on Tuesday evening that while Juan Lagares won’t need surgery, he is done for the season. He added that Dilson Herrera and Vic Black are also done for the year and earlier in the day it was announced that Jacob deGrom would not make his final start of 2014.

Original Story (September 17th, 2014)

Juan Lagares left Tuesday night’s game against the Marlins with what the team initially called a hyper-extended right elbow. He was removed prior to the top of the fifth and was replaced by Kirk Nieuwenhuis.

Lagares hyper-extended it while making a strong throw to nail Garrett Jones at second base after trying to run down a fly ball by Jarrod Saltalamacchia to shallow center.

This afternoon, Lagares told reporters that the MRI he underwent has revealed an elbow sprain and he is unsure of when he’ll return to action.

Team doctors will reexamine Lagares on Sunday so it’s safe to say he’ll likely be out until then.
