After a horrendous day on defense against the Miami Marlins, New York Mets' center fielder, Juan Lagares was named the defensive player of the month for August. It is the second straight season that Lagares has won the award. In the month of August, Lagares had 13 defensive runs saved, bring his season total to 30 now. Lagares could very well be seeing a gold glove in his future, as only Jason Hayward has had more defensive runs saved this season.
