Padres have entered into a contract with gardener Juan Lagareth, according to MLB network John Hayman (Twitter link).
If Lagares can break the big league list, it’s a minor league deal that pays $ 1.4 million. Bob Nightingale of USA Today also has $ 1.1MM for available incentives and an exclusion date of March 19.
Lagares was able to put himself in the place of Manuel Margot, a recently changed center fielder. First, Lagareth must show that he is about to recover from the difficult 2019 season.
Lagares, at best, gave the Metz a high-end defense job and an almost average league hit. However, that was when Ragareth logged into Gold Globe in 2014 and set the table for the extension of spring 2015.
Since then, things have gone wrong. Lagares addressed several health problems and stepped back on the plate.
Although UZR and DRS had problems with their work with gloves in 2019, Statcast provided much evidence that Ragareth still has enough skills in the gloves on his hands.
The monks seem to have a fairly open field battle. Lagares and Will Myers are right-handed candidates, respectively, and make sure they are at the center.
The word is that left-handed Francie Cordero can switch to the strongest defense point. The recently acquired Trent Grisham is also optional.
Tommy Fam will surely see a lot of action in the corner. All the players mentioned above and some other players (especially Josh Naylor and Abraham Almonte) also potentially compete.
Padres adds Juan Lagareth to the Centerfield mix and signs a minor league contract with former Met
Padres added Juan Lagareth to the garden and agreed to the terms of a minor league veteran.
Lagares, 30, played mainly in the center field and spent seven major league seasons in the New York Mets. He was given a free agency in November after hitting .213 at a rate of 0.213 at the base in 2019. Right-handed hitters are .254 / .297 race hitters.
