ATLANTA -- Juan Lagares did not travel with the Mets to Turner Field for the series with the Atlanta Braves. He is not due to rejoin the club for the next stop in D.C., either.

So Lagares may be done for the season with a sprained right elbow.

Terry Collins said there is a chance Lagares may appear during the season-ending three-game series back at Citi Field against the Houston Astros, but team doctors would need to sign off. Lagares is due to be reexamined after the weekend.

He departed Tuesday's game after the elbow worsened on a throw from the outfield to second base.
