Wilmer Flores felt lingering pain in his wrist while trying to swing a bat on Monday.
He'll be shut down for another couple days and could very well be done for the year, unless the Mets can muster a deep postseason run. Flores hasn't appeared in a major league game since September 10 due to a bone bruise in his left wrist. He was slashing .267/.319/.469 with 16 homers and 49 RBI in 307 at-bats. Sep 27 - 4:12 PM

ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports Wilmer Flores (wrist) may be done for the season.

He isn't close to swinging a bat and has already received two cortisone shots since going down with a bruised wrist two weeks ago. Flores could return if the Mets make a deep postseason run but it's a near certainty he won't be back for the final week of the regular season. Assuming that's the case, Flores will close out the 2016 campaign with 16 HR, 49 RBI and a .267 average across 307 at-bats.

Mets manager Terry Collins has ruled out Wilmer Flores (wrist) for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Collins deemed the worry-level surrounding Flores' wrist as a "DEFCON 4," so that is somewhat disconcerting. The team had hoped that the 25-year-old infielder would be able to return to the lineup against Phillies southpaw Adam Morgan on Thursday. Flores is currently sidelined by a left wrist injury suffered in a collision at home plate on September 10. He has been given two cortisone shots in the intervening days, but Collins said Flores has not been able to swing a bat since the collision.

Wilmer Flores was given a second cortisone injection for his injured left wrist.

Flores hasn't appeared in a game for the Mets since suffering a bone bruise in an awkward home-plate collision with A.J. Pierzynski on September 10 in Atlanta, and it's going to be at least another couple days before he can return. T.J. Rivera is at second base and James Loney is at first base on Tuesday night against the Braves.
Sep 20 - 4:13 PM

Wilmer Flores has been diagnosed with inflammation in his left wrist.

He's been given a cortisone shot and the expectation is that he'll be ready to go in a couple days. Flores hasn't played since getting involved in a home-plate collision with A.J. Pierzynski last Saturday.
Sep 16 - 3:44 PM

Wilmer Flores will have his sore right wrist examined by a doctor on Thursday.

Flores has been experiencing both neck and wrist discomfort since an ugly home-plate collision with A.J. Pierzynski on Saturday night. X-rays taken in Atlanta over the weekend came back negative, but Flores is still unable to swing a bat. There should be an informative update coming sometime Thursday afternoon.

Wilmer Flores (neck) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Flores has dealt with neck stiffness since his home plate collision on Saturday and wasn't even able to hit on Monday. It's unclear when he could be ready to return to the lineup. T.J. Rivera is getting the start at second base against right-hander A.J. Cole.
Sep 13 - 3:44 PM

Wilmer Flores was unable to do any hitting on Monday because his neck was still too stiff from Saturday's home plate collision.

As a result, Mets manager Terry Collins is unsure if Flores will be available as a pinch-hitter on Monday against the Nationals. He's considered day-to-day for now.
Sep 12 - 4:54 PM

Wilmer Flores has a stiff neck Sunday but is feeling better following Saturday's collision with A.J. Pierzynski at home plate.

X-rays came back negative and Flores could be available to pinch-hit Sunday. He should be available to start before long. Kelly Johnson is at second base Sunday.
Sep 11 - 11:13 AM

Wilmer Flores left Saturday's game against the Braves with a bruised neck.

His X-rays came back negative. Flores injured himself in a collision with A.J. Pierzynski at home plate. He was able to walk off on his own power but was replaced in the field by James Loney. Flores went 1-for-4 with a double before exiting in the eighth inning. It's safe to assume he won't be on the field for Sunday's series finale.
Sep 10 - 10:27 PM

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with a double in Monday’s win over the Reds.

It was an adventurous day on the bases for Flores, who couldn’t keep his foot on the bag while trying to go for a double in the first inning and was thrown out attempting to stretch a double into a triple in his next at-bat in the fourth inning. Still, it was an encouraging day at the plate for him after he came into the day hitless in his last 13 at-bats. Flores is batting .269 with 15 homers and a .789 OPS in 99 games this season and should continue to see steady playing time with Neil Walker (back) done for the year.
Sep 5 - 4:53 PM

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.
Aug 24 - 1:00 AM

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.
