Wilmer Flores could spend time in the outfield for the Mets in 2018.
Flores played left field for the Mets on Saturday; a game he went 3-for-4 with a homer in against the Nationals. It's a way to get the 26-year-old's bat into the lineup, as he's coming off a career best 2017 season where he hit 18 homers and .795 OPS. His lack of patience makes him less valuable in on-base percentage leagues, but his power from the right-side could make him fantasy relevant in 2018. Mar 18 - 9:26 AM

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 and belted a two-run homer in Saturday's 9-7 win over the Nationals in Grapefruit League play.

He went yard off veteran hurler Edwin Jackson in the fifth inning. Flores has a nice .317/.370/.537 slash line with two homers and five RBI so far this spring. He will serve as a backup infielder again this season but has the talent to be a valuable fantasy asset if he ever gets everyday playing time.

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 and homered as the Mets and Tigers played to a 4-4 tie on Friday.

We'd like to see what Flores would do with regular at-bats after solid seasons in part-time roles the last two years, but his glove is a big enough problem that he really only makes much sense at first base. The Mets will likely pencil him into the lineup against most lefties, but he's not going to see enough action against righties initially to be of much use for fantasy purposes.
Mar 9 - 5:05 PM

Wilmer Flores laced two singles in four at-bats against the Marlins on Saturday.

The Mets couldn't get much going in this one and Flores got two of the team's five knocks. He served as the designated hitter today. The 26-year-old will once again be a utility infielder this season, although he should get more playing time than most utility players do. The team plans to get him some time in the outfield during camp. He hit .271/.307/.488 with 18 homers and 52 RBI in 362 plate appearances last year.
Mar 3 - 6:51 PM

Wilmer Flores will get outfield reps this spring in Mets camp.

Jose Reyes is also going to play some outfield, though that's less news-worthy given that he saw a bit of action there last season. Flores hasn't played a single inning in the outfield in his major league career, but the Mets want to find creative ways to get the 26-year-old in the lineup after watching him put up a .795 OPS with 18 home runs in 110 games last season.
Feb 13 - 4:26 PM

Mets and INF Wilmer Flores avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.4 million contract.

It's the infielder's second year of arbitration eligibility. Flores is currently lined up to start at second base for the Mets, but they're seeking an upgrade outside the organization.
Jan 12 - 12:21 PM

Wilmer Flores (nose) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Flores suffered a bad broken nose last Saturday when he fouled a ball off his face. The 26-year-old infielder finishes the 2017 season with a .271/.307/.488 batting line, 18 home runs, and 52 RBI in 110 games. He'll be arbitration-eligible this winter for the second time.

Wilmer Flores (nose) is still experiencing swelling and will be re-examined on Thursday.

Flores suffered a broken nose when he fouled a ball off his face Saturday. The hope was that he could return by the end of the week, but obviously the Mets have no reason to push things at this point.

Wilmer Flores (nose) could play later this week.

Flores suffered a broken nose when he fouled a ball off his face Saturday. He'll visit an otorhinolaryngologist in New York before hopefully being cleared to return to action.

Wilmer Flores has a broken nose after fouling a ball off his face during Saturday's game.

No surprise, given all of the bleeding. If that's the only problem, Flores might not miss too much time. We don't yet know if that's the extent of the damage, though.

Wilmer Flores left Saturday's game in the fourth inning after taking a foul ball off his face.

Flores fouled the ball straight up and took it right in the face. Fortunately, it got some nose and apparently right between his eyes, hopefully sparing him any eye/orbital bone damage. He was bleeding pretty good from his nose, but he was able to walk off under his own power.

Wilmer Flores clubbed a grand slam on Saturday but his squad still fell to the Astros.

He plastered a pitch from reliever Will Harris over the left field wall with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. It was his only hit in five at-bats while serving as the designated hitter in the interleague matchup. The 26-year-old is now slashing .269/.305/.487 with 18 home runs and 52 RBI in 361 plate appearances.

Wilmer Flores homered for the second consecutive game as the Mets took the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Flores hammered a two-run homer off of Erick Fedde in the third inning, increasing the Mets' early lead to 5-0. It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the afternoon. Flores is now hitting .275/.313/.494 with a career-best 17 home runs and 47 RBI.

Wilmer Flores went 4-for-4 with a home run and three RBI but his team still lost to the Nationals on Saturday.

He cracked a solo bomb off ace starter Gio Gonzalez in the sixth inning, then punched a double to drive in two more runs in the eighth. Flores began the season as a backup but has been playing first base and batting clean-up in a Mets' starting lineup that has been depleted by injuries and trades. He has a .277 batting average with 16 home runs and 45 RBI in 337 plate appearances.

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.
