Wilmer Flores slugged a grand slam in Friday’s victory over the Phillies.
It was his only hit in four at-bats on Friday, but it was a huge one, as his fifth-inning blast extended the Mets’ lead to 6-1. They added three more runs in the sixth to put the game out of reach. Flores hasn’t done much against right-handers this season, but he continues to mash lefties. 10 of his 14 homers have come against left-handers. Aug 26 - 10:27 PM

Wilmer Flores hit a three-run home run as the Mets bested the Cardinals 7-4 on Tuesday.

Getting a start against a lefty as per usual, Flores turned on an inside fastball in the first inning for the three-run dinger. It was his only hit in the game and Flores' 13th homer of the year. With first base still a big question mark and Flores' ability to hit left-handed pitching, the 25-year-old should continue to draw starts at the less-hot corner going forward. Flores is hitting .259/.315/.447 in 87 games total.

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Mets' 3-2, 11-inning win over the Padres on Saturday.

Flores was having a good night before he came to the dish with runners on the corners and one out in the 11th inning. The 25-year-old hit a ground ball up the middle that second baseman Ryan Schimpf fielded but threw wide of catcher Christian Bethancourt, allowing the winning run to score and making Flores the hero. With the three-hit night, Flores is batting .255/.309/.434 with 11 homers, 33 RBI and 27 runs scored overall.
Aug 14 - 12:15 AM

Wilmer Flores singled and launched a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Flores got the scoring going with a leadoff bomb in the second inning off of CC Sabathia, as he continues to torch left-handed pitching this season. He later added a single and scored another run. With the left side of the Mets' infield banged up, Flores is going to see steady playing time.
Aug 1 - 11:03 PM

Wilmer Flores smacked a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

Flores was the only one to get to Jon Lester, lifting a solo shot into the left field bleachers in the seventh inning. He also had a single, notching two of the Mets' six hits on the night. Six of Flores' nine home runs on the season have come this month.
Jul 18 - 10:38 PM

Wilmer Flores is out of the Mets' lineup Thursday.

Flores homered twice in the Mets' defeat of the Marlins on Wednesday, but he'll take a seat on the bench at the outset of Thursday's series opener against the Nationals. Jose Reyes is starting at third base and batting leadoff versus Washington righty Lucas Giolito.
Jul 7 - 3:31 PM

Wilmer Flores went 6-for-6 with a pair of home runs and four total RBI in Sunday's 14-3 win over the Cubs.

Wilmer Flores, offensive powerhouse? You wouldn't think so judging by the .224/.391/.336 triple-slash he held entering action on Sunday, but for at least one day, Flores was the man. He opened the second inning by hitting a solo home run off Jon Lester, then came through later in that same frame with an RBI single (the Mets scored seven runs in the second). He also struck for a two-run homer in the fifth inning. There is nothing in Flores' career history that would indicate that these supernova results will lead to any sort of an extended offensive outburst.
Jul 3 - 5:47 PM

Wilmer Flores (hand) went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

While Flores was dealing with a left hand contusion entering the weekend series, he has played in-full during each of the last two games. On Sunday, he was the only Mets batter to finish with more than one hit. His ninth-inning RBI single drew the team to within 5-2, but that would be the last of the game's scoring. With a .240/.309/.368 triple-slash over 125 at-bats, Flores does not make for any sort of legitimate fantasy option.
Jun 26 - 5:54 PM

Wilmer Flores (hand) is back in the Mets' starting lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Flores was held out of Friday's lineup due to a left hand contusion, but he did pinch-hit later in the game. He is starting at third base and batting sixth on Saturday.
Jun 18 - 4:21 PM

Wilmer Flores (hand) struck out in a pinch-hit appearance Friday versus the Braves.

Flores was held out of the starting lineup after suffering a left hand contusion on a hit-by-pitch on Thursday, but he was asked to pinch-hit Friday with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning. While he didn’t come through, it’s a sign that he should be back in the lineup very soon. The 24-year-old is expected to get the bulk of the playing time at third base with David Wright (neck) sidelined.
Jun 17 - 11:02 PM

Wilmer Flores (hand) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Flores departed Thursday's contest after being hit on the left hand by a pitch. X-rays came back clean, but he's likely still sore. Kelly Johnson will fill in at third base Friday.
Jun 17 - 3:37 PM

Wilmer Flores left Thursday's game against the Pirates with a bruised left hand.

Flores took a Juan Nicasio pitch off his left hand to open the second inning. He stuck around for a while but was eventually replaced at third base by Kelly Johnson. The good news is that Flores' X-rays came back negative, so he shouldn't miss much time. With Flores banged up David Wright recovering from surgery, the Mets aren't catching any breaks at third base.
Jun 16 - 8:46 PM

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk, and two runs scored against the Marlins on Friday.

It was a good night for Flores, who hasn’t had many of them so far this season. The Mets will be without David Wright (neck) well into the second half and Flores will get the first opportunity to fill in at third base. The 24-year-old offers pop and multi-position eligibility, so he could carve out some relevance in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 3 - 10:14 PM

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) will not be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

The Mets have decided to extend Flores' rehab assignment a bit longer, but he could still conceivably return sometime over the weekend. Flores is slated to take over at first base for the Mets with Lucas Duda (back) on the shelf.
