The play aggravated an injury that Lagares initially felt when the team played in Cincinnati earlier this month. He did not miss any time then.
"[Lagares] did it one other time in Cincinnati. A couple days later he was fine. It hasn't bothered him since. Today he had a stinger," manager Terry Collins said. "Because of that, and because of the way he described it, [we] thought it was maybe more than just hyperextended -- you worry about the nerve or something. We'll have him looked at [Wednesday]. The doctors right now don't think it's anything real serious."
Lagares, who said he will probably get an MRI on Wednesday, noted after the game that he felt better then than he did in the fifth inning.
"I want to … get checked to make sure," Lagares said. "Let's see tomorrow [after] I talk to the doctor."
Lagares finished the game 0-for-2. He popped out in the first and grounded out in the third.
