Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list Sunday.
Flores started at third base in this one. He's also expected to see significant playing time at first base while Lucas Duda recovers from a serious back injury. Flores has some power (16 homers last year) and is worthy of attention in deeper mixed fantasy leagues while he is receiving regular at-bats for the Mets. May 30 - 8:44 AM

Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 2-for-3 in his rehab debut Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

He also played seven innings at first base without issue. Flores is on track to return from the disabled list when first eligible this Friday night against the Dodgers and he could see a good amount of starts at first base with Lucas Duda (back) sidelined.
May 24 - 8:43 PM

Wilmer Flores (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday.

Flores is expected to be activated from the disabled list as soon as he's eligible on Friday. He'll get a few games under his belt in the minor leagues to get his timing back before a return to a utility role with the Mets.
May 21 - 1:23 PM

Mets placed INF Wilmer Flores on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Flores initially tweaked his hamstring Monday and probably made it worse by trying to play Tuesday. Now he could miss the next three weeks. Flores will fly to New York on Thursday for a full examination by team docs.
May 12 - 6:17 AM

With Lucas Duda sitting out, Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a double as the Mets' first baseman on Friday.

The Mets could give Flores the occasional start at first base against a lefty if he proves capable. Flores is hitting .333 with a 4/8 K/BB ratio in 42 at-bats this spring.
Mar 25 - 4:50 PM

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-3 with two doubles on Monday and is 10-for-18 this spring.

With David Wright yet to debut and the team not entirely sure about his status for Opening Day, Flores has been playing plenty of third base this spring. He could also start at short if Asdrubal Cabrera needs some DL time. Either way, it seems likely that he'll be needed in April.
Mar 14 - 5:11 PM

Wilmer Flores had three singles in three at-bats versus the Braves on Tuesday.

Flores started at third base today. He projects to see more time there than anywhere else, what with David Wright being targeted for frequent rest days this year.
Mar 8 - 4:51 PM

Wilmer Flores skipped Tuesday's intrasqaud game due to illness.

He should be good to go in the next day or so. After the additions of Neil Walker and Asdrubal Cabrera over the winter, Flores is expected to serve as a backup all over the infield in 2016.
Mar 1 - 2:40 PM

Wilmer Flores (ankle) said Thursday he is working out at full strength.

He also said he expects to be 100 percent for spring training. Flores suffered a non-displaced fracture of his left ankle on November 26, but the injury shouldn't hold him back when camp kicks into gear later this month. The 24-year-old is expected to be a reserve player for the Mets this year.
Feb 4 - 5:27 PM

Wilmer Flores (ankle) has shed his walking boot and is scheduled to begin hitting this week.

Flores suffered a non-displaced fracture of his left ankle bone on November 26 while playing in the Venezuelan Winter League, but he's already working out at the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The 24-year-old functioned as New York's primary shortstop for most of 2015, but he's expected to shift to a utility infielder role this year.
Jan 27 - 12:34 PM

Wilmer Flores could serve as the Mets' backup first baseman in 2016.

Michael Cuddyer retired one year into his contract last Friday, so the Mets suddenly don't have a backup for Lucas Duda at first base. Flores was already expected to move into a utility role following the signing of Asdrubal Cabrera, so he'll now get some reps at first base as well. The 24-year-old has appeared in 20 game at first base in the minors, so the position isn't completely unfamiliar to him.

Wilmer Flores was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the left ankle bone.

Flores suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch in the Venezuelan Winter League. He'll wear a boot, but the Mets expect he'll be ready for spring training. As of now, the 24-year-old appears likely to share playing time at shortstop in 2016.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 03:41:00 PM

Wilmer Flores is returning home from winter ball after getting hit in the ankle by a pitch.

Flores will leave his Venezuelan Winter league team to return to the United States to be checked out. The Mets aren't alarmed by his injury though and it isn't expected to impact his availability for spring training. The 24-year-old was playing second base in Venezuela, perhaps in preparation for a new role with the club in 2016.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 06:49:00 PM

Wilmer Flores (calf) returned to action with his Venezuelan Winter League team on Wednesday.

Flores took five days off after getting struck in the calf last week by a pitch. It was just a precautionary move. The 24-year-old has been playing second base primarily in Venezuela. He made 96 starts at short and 30 starts at second this summer with the Mets.
