Wilmer Flores hit his 15th home run of the year, a two-run blast, in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.
Flores got all of it and he knew it, taking a few steps toward first base as he watched the ball sail down the left field line and into the seats. It was part of a seven-run sixth inning for the New York club. Flores is on his way to a career high in homers, as he's now one shy of the mark set in 2015 and tied in 2016. The 26-year-old is having a strong offensive season all around, batting .281/.318/.497 through 96 games. Aug 19 - 11:31 PM

Wilmer Flores (rib cage) went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in his return to action Friday against the Marlins.

He drove in the only run of the game for the Mets. Flores missed back-to-back games during the Subway Series due to soreness in his rib cage, but he made the start at first base on Friday with Dominic Smith on the bench against left-hander Justin Nicolino. He should see playing time all over the Mets' infield down the stretch.

Wilmer Flores (rib cage) remains out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday.

Flores was a late scratch Wednesday due to soreness on the left side of his rib cage and is apparently still experiencing some discomfort. Matt Reynolds has been called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and will start at third base and bat eighth Thursday night against Yankees right-hander Luis Severino.

Wilmer Flores (rib cage) was scratched from the Mets' lineup Wednesday against the Yankees.

Flores had been slated to start at third base but was scratched due to soreness in his left rib cage. With Jose Reyes (rib cage) also banged up, the Mets will turn to Travis d'Arnaud at the hot corner. It will be d'Arnaud's first big league appearance at third base.

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's lopsided win over the Phillies.

Flores put the Phils on notice that it was going to be a long night when he hit a three-run shot off starter Vincent Velasquez. He also singled and doubled in the victory. The game was the second in a row in which the 26-year-old has homered, giving him 14 on the year. His career high in dingers in 16, set in 2015 and matched in 2016. This year is shaping up to be his finest offensive year yet, with the infielder hitting .287/.319/.509 in 89 games.

Wilmer Flores swatted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Mariners.

He came to the plate with the bases loaded in the sixth inning and worked a walk to drive in a run without making contact. He doubled and scored in the ninth but the Mets' rally ultimately fell a run short. The utility infielder is batting .284/.317/.486 with 11 homers and 32 RBI in 80 games.

Wilmer Flores crushed his 11th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Padres on Wednesday.

His solo shot pulled the Mets to within three runs at 6-3 in the eighth inning, but that would be the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Flores finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .283/.316/.489 with 11 long balls and 30 RBI on the year.

Wilmer Flores hit a walk-off, solo home run in the ninth inning Saturday to complete the Mets' comeback in a 6-5 win over the Athletics.

The Mets once trailed 5-0 in the game, but they battled against A's starter Sean Manaea to close the gap and got to the Athletics' bullpen late. That included Flores, who deposited a Simon Castro fastball into the left field seats to send the fans home happy. Flores finished 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the game. The 25-year-old infielder doesn't have a permanent home but has been serviceable when called upon, batting .284/.312/.473 in 222 at-bats this year.
Jul 23 - 12:23 AM

Wilmer Flores delivered a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning Thursday as part of the Mets' 3-2 win over the Cardinals.

Flores' homer tied the game off Brett Cecil. The Mets went on to win it in the ninth when Jose Reyes was credited with a game-ending infield single after Trevor Rosenthal failed to cover first base. Flores was on the bench today for the sixth time in seven games since the second half started. The Mets prefer T.J. Rivera at third base at the moment.

Wilmer Flores is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

Jul 3 - 2:43 PM

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Flores opened the scoring with a solo shot off Giants starter Johnny Cueto in the fourth inning, his seventh of the year. He then plated what ended up being the game-winning run with a double in the eighth. The 25-year-old is a notorious lefty-killer but has held his own against right-handed pitching this year, batting .288 with five homers. It's a large part of the reason he's hitting .295/.314/.481 through 56 games overall.

Wilmer Flores was out of the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, but the slumping infielder was held out for rest.

Flores hit .412 in the first nine games in the month of June, but he is hitting .071 over the past eight outings. "You can kind of see he's dragging a little bit. So we're going to let him get off his feet for a while," manager Terry Collins said. With Flores resting it was T.J. Rivera moving over to third base with Gavin Cecchini slotting in at second.

Wilmer Flores hit a solo home run in a loss to the Nationals on Thursday.

With another lefty on the mound for the opposing team, Flores batted near the top of the lineup for the third consecutive day. He was on his way to another disappointing performance from that choice lineup spot before connecting for the solo jack in the eighth inning off, ironically, right-hander Joe Blanton. Flores has six homers and 19 RBI overall, batting .311/.333/.497 over 48 games.

Wilmer Flores tagged two hits Saturday in the Mets’ 6-1 victory over the Braves.

He scored the game’s first run in the second inning, coming home on a sac fly by T.J. Rivera. Flores later chipped in with a sac fly of his own, staking New York to a 2-0 lead by plating Michael Conforto in the eighth inning. The 25-year-old has impressed when called upon this year, batting .315 with five homers and 17 RBI over 130 at-bats.
