Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's 14-1 demolition of the Brewers.
Flores' grand slam off Matt Garza accounted for four of the 10 runs the Mets scored in the fourth inning. With the slam, he now has six homers and 15 RBI. Flores provides a bit of pop for the Mets, but outside of that, there's nothing particularly flashy about his .250/.296/.454 batting line. May 16 - 10:15 PM

Wilmer Flores connected for a solo blast in Thursday’s loss to the Cubs.

It was his team-leading fifth home run of the season. Of course, he’s still batting just .238 with a .287 on-base percentage and also committed his eighth error of the season Thursday. He’s not doing enough at the plate to make up for his subpar defense.
May 14 - 5:16 PM

Wilmer Flores is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's the second straight day he's been on the bench in favor of Ruben Tejada. Flores is clearly overmatched defensively at shortstop, and it's possible we could start seeing Tejada more and more at the position.
May 3 - 10:34 AM

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI to lead the Mets to a 3-2 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

Three straight multihit games have elevated Flores' average from .182 to .272, and he also seems to have overcome his early error binge. Of course, that still doesn't make him a good defensive shortstop, but the Mets knew that going in and still committed to him.
Apr 22 - 10:36 PM

Wilmer Flores hit his first homer, a three-run shot off the Marlins' Jarred Cosart, in Thursday's win.

Flores certainly hasn't been helpful with the glove, so it's imperative that he starts hitting. He's batting .173 after tonight.
Apr 16 - 10:28 PM

Wilmer Flores went 0-for-3 in Friday's loss to the Braves.

Not a good night for Flores, who also committed two fielding errors and had a lot of trouble throwing the ball. He's 2-for-14 (.143) with three strikeouts and no walks across his first four games this season and won't be able to justify his place in the lineup if he can't hit. We could see more of Ruben Tejada in the coming days.

Wilmer Flores (foot) is back in the Mets' Grapefruit League lineup on Thursday afternoon.

And it's a road game. Flores fouled a ball off his foot last Sunday and was left with some bruising and some soreness, but X-rays came back negative and the young shortstop will be fine for the beginning of the 2015 regular season.
Mar 26 - 10:53 AM

Wilmer Flores (foot) could return to Grapefruit League action on Thursday.

Flores made it through a range of drills Tuesday in Mets camp without experiencing significant discomfort in his bruised left foot. X-rays taken Sunday came back negative. He'll be fine for Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 4:12 PM

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.
Mar 24 - 9:05 AM

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.
Mar 22 - 9:54 PM

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. MLB.com's Anthony DiComo says there appeared to be "nothing lingering" from the HBP.
