Mets GIF Of The Game: Juan Lagares takes a ball to the face

Pictured: Juan Lagares, not taking a ball to the face. - USA TODAY Sports

Paul Goldschmidt hit a sinking liner to center. Juan Lagares came up short of it. For his trouble, Lagares got a bouncing ball to the face.

By most accounts, Juan Lagares has been a very good defensive center fielder for the Mets this season. He's not doing much at the plate — .230/.248/.349 — but his glovework has been sublime.

We all have our moments, though, and Lagares's came during the top of the eighth inning of last night's game against the Diamondbacks. Paul Goldschmidt hit a sinking liner to center that Lagares juuuuust didn't quite get to.
