WASHINGTON -- Juan Lagares, who has not played since departing last Tuesday's game with right elbow discomfort, is done for the season.

The positive news: Lagares will not need surgery to repair the sprain.

"He's going to go through the rehab process. That's going to take some time to get the muscles in the elbow stronger," Terry Collins said. Like every baseball player, due to all the balls you throw, it's never clean. But it's nothing that they think they need to surgically repair, which is huge for us, because he would miss major time next year."

Collins added that Dilson Herrera (right quadriceps strain) and Vic Black (rotator-cuff strain) also are done for the season.
