Wilmer Flores (foot) plans to throw, stretch, and hit Tuesday.

Flores fouled a ball off his foot during Sunday's game, but X-rays came back negative and he only had to wear a walking boot for less than 24 hours. He's not ready to run yet, but it's not expected to be a long-term issue.

Wilmer Flores removed the walking boot from his left foot Monday morning.

It was just a day ago that Flores left a game after fouling a ball off the foot. X-rays came back clean, though, and he fully expects to be fine come Opening Day. "It was bad yesterday -- I couldn't even walk on it," Flores said. "It's a little bit swollen. I'm having a problem walking right now. I'm just going to go day by day and we'll see how it goes."

Wilmer Flores was diagnosed with a bruised foot after X-rays came back negative on Sunday.

Flores sustained the injury when he fouled a ball off his foot during Sunday's Grapefruit League game. The Mets sent him for precautionary X-rays to rule out a fracture and have to be thrilled with the diagnosis. He should return to action in a few days.

Wilmer Flores is heading for X-rays after fouling a ball off his left foot during Sunday's Grapefruit League game.

Flores is in a walking boot for the time being and noted being in a lot of pain. The Mets should have an update on his status shortly. If he is looking at an extended absence, Ruben Tejada could be forced into the primary shortstop role once again.
Mar 22 - 4:25 PM

Wilmer Flores had a homer and a sac fly against the Cardinals on Thursday.

Flores' homer came off Jaime Garcia. He's batting a cool .406 in 32 at-bats this spring. If he can just keep that up during the regular season, he'll match Ted Williams.
Mar 19 - 5:51 PM

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer and a double as the Mets topped a Braves split-squad 13-2 on Friday.

Flores, taking no chances as he tries to nail down the starting job at shortstop, is 10-for-22 this spring. He's a good bet to break through offensively this year, but it probably won't result in a ton of fantasy value, not when he'll be hitting at the bottom of the Mets order.
Mar 13 - 6:06 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that Wilmer Flores (wrist, hand) is "fine."

Flores was lifted from Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his lower left arm.'s Anthony DiComo says there appeared to be "nothing lingering" from the HBP.
Mar 4 - 4:24 PM

Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves after he was hit in the wrist area by a pitch.

The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but Mets manager Terry Collins clearly didn't want to take any chances. The Mets should pass along an update soon. Ruben Tejada and Matt Reynolds are the backup options at shortstop if Flores needs to miss significant time.
Mar 4 - 2:28 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Sunday that Wilmer Flores is the frontrunner to be the team's starting shortstop on Opening Day.

That's assuming that the Mets are unable to fill their large vacancy at the position through free agency or a trade this winter. The 23-year-old has potential offensively and hit .251/.286/.378 with six homers and 29 RBI in his 259 at-bats with the club in 2014. Given the full-time job for the season, he could carve out some value as a middle infield option in mixed leagues.

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored as the Mets beat the Nationals 7-4 in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader.

Flores is giving the Mets extra incentive to trade David Murphy this winter while hitting .286 with four homers, 13 RBI and just three strikeouts in 77 at-bats this month. It'd be nice if he walked more (just 11 times in 266 at-bats), but with his emerging power, he should be one of the Mets' regulars next year.

Wilmer Flores had a career night, going 3-for-4 with a double, a pair of home runs, and six runs batted in as the Mets trounced the Marlins on Tuesday.

Flores tied the game at 1-1 with a fourth-inning double, then kept adding on with a three-run home run in the fifth and a two-run blast in the seventh, both off of Brad Penny. Flores entered the night with four home runs in 229 plate appearances, so it was certainly an uncharacteristically powerful performance. Along with six homers, Flores has knocked in 28 runs and posted a .245/.280/.386 slash line.

Wilmer Flores finished 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run, but the Mets were handed a 3-2 loss by the Braves on Wednesday.

Flores tied the game up at 1-1 when he belted a Julio Teheran offering to left-center in the second inning. The 23-year-old has otherwise had little to write home about offensively this season, slashing .224/.258/.301 with two home runs and 15 RBI in 164 plate appearances.

Wilmer Flores went 0-for-2 with a walk Friday against the Cubs.

Flores has started nine straight games at shortstop and is batting just .235 (8-for-34) with no extra-base hits and two walks during that span. He's not off to an impressive start during his audition, but the Mets know what they have with Ruben Tejada, so Flores will continue to be the focus.
