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.

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.

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 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.

Aug 9 - 3:25 PM
