Now that the 2014 season has concluded for the New York Mets, we have already taken a look at overall breakdowns for the offense, starting pitching, and bullpen. We will now take a look at every player on the active roster from A (Bobby Abreu) to Y (Eric Young Jr) as our Mets 101 Player Review Series returns. In each review we will take a look at the player's 2014 performance and what role, if any, they can expect to have with the Mets in 2014. We continue our series today with a look at outfielder Juan Lagares.

Mets 101 Player Review: Juan Lagares

2014 Stats: 116 Games, 416 At Bats, 117 Hits, 46 Runs Scored, 24 Doubles, 3 Triples, 4 Home Runs, 47 RBI's, 13 Stolen Bases, .281 Batting Average, .703 OPS

2014 Story: Lagares entered the 2014 season as the starting center fielder, but with a chip on his shoulder. With the Mets adding Chris Young to the mix, Lagares would have to hit ot keep his every day job. Lagares got off to a hot start, hitting .314 over the first two weeks of the season before suffering a hamstring injury and landing on the disabled list. Lagares returned in May, but suffered another injury and missed the first few weeks of June. Lagares also had to deal with less and less playing time for some reason, as fans fumed while Lagares sat in favor of the slumping Youngs.

Citi Field Dimensions Will Become More Symmetrical

October 29th, 2014 at 12:47 PM
By Mike Phillips

The construction on Citi Field's new outfield walls is well underway, with the new dimensions aimed at boosting offense for some of the New York Mets' best hitters. Both David Wright and Curtis Granderson suffered hitting at home last season as a lot of fly balls died in the cavernous right center field gap. According to some estimates, Granderson lost as many as seven home runs in 2014 due to the far away fences at Citi. That should change in the new design.

The new dimensions are set to make CIti Field less gimmicky and more conventional in design, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. The changes, which one team official described as tweaks, will make the field more symmetrical. Wright, who will be a big beneficiary of the new fences, expressed his approval when shown a photo of the work in progress. The Mets haven't announced the new dimensions yet, but the changes are not expected to be drastic.
