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.

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.

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.

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.
May 27 - 2:08 PM

Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 2-for-3 in his rehab debut Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

He also played seven innings at first base without issue. Flores is on track to return from the disabled list when first eligible this Friday night against the Dodgers and he could see a good amount of starts at first base with Lucas Duda (back) sidelined.
May 24 - 8:43 PM

Wilmer Flores (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday.

Flores is expected to be activated from the disabled list as soon as he's eligible on Friday. He'll get a few games under his belt in the minor leagues to get his timing back before a return to a utility role with the Mets.
May 21 - 1:23 PM

Mets placed INF Wilmer Flores on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Flores initially tweaked his hamstring Monday and probably made it worse by trying to play Tuesday. Now he could miss the next three weeks. Flores will fly to New York on Thursday for a full examination by team docs.
May 12 - 6:17 AM

With Lucas Duda sitting out, Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a double as the Mets' first baseman on Friday.

The Mets could give Flores the occasional start at first base against a lefty if he proves capable. Flores is hitting .333 with a 4/8 K/BB ratio in 42 at-bats this spring.
