News: The Mets are giving Lagares must-steal signs in an effort to make him more aggressive on the bases, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Lagares gets such good jumps in the outfield and has such a quick first step, seen in him getting named Defensive Player of the Month for August, New York wants to force him to use those skills on the basepaths. While this likely will result in a higher caught stealing number, fantasy owners may get the benefit of additional stolen bases from Lagares.(RotoWire, )
