http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/met...medium=twitterST. LOUIS -- Juan Lagares is getting closer to a return from a strained intercostal muscle on his right side.
Lagares, who last appeared with the Mets on June 1, took live batting practice for the first time since landing on the disabled list on Monday in Port St. Lucie, Fla., including against John Lannan.
I can't wait for him to come back. He's so important for this team.
