Date:

Kendry Flores is not expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday due to discomfort in his right arm.

It's unclear at this point whether Flores might need a stint on the disabled list, but it doesn't look to be a serious issue at the moment. The Marlins haven't revealed who will take the ball versus the Pirates on Wednesday in Flores' place.
Aug 24 - 5:43 PM

Kendry Flores was knocked around in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday, surrendering five runs on seven hits over his five frames.

Flores punched out five and walked two on the evening. It was the first major league start for the 23-year-old right-hander, and just his seventh appearance overall. He started the night off with three scoreless innings before the Phillies broke through for four runs in the fourth. He'll look for better results on Wednesday against the Pirates.
Aug 21 - 10:04 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Kendry Flores from Triple-A New Orleans.

Flores went 3 2/3 scoreless innings in a brief stint with the big club earlier this season. He'll work in middle relief.
Aug 7 - 3:20 PM

Marlins optioned RHP Kendry Flores to Triple-A New Orleans.

Flores appeared in just two games in his time with the Marlins, hurling 3 2/3 scoreless innings. He should get another opportunity with the big league club before long the next time they need a fresh arm.
Jun 12 - 11:09 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Kendry Flores from Double-A Jacksonville.

He'll join Miami's bullpen following Steve Cishek's demotion. Acquired from the Giants in the Casey McGehee deal over the winter, Flores posted a 2.06 ERA over nine starts in Double-A this season.
Jun 2 - 3:17 PM

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com writes that prospect right-hander Kendry Flores is close to being called up from Double-A Jacksonville.

Acquired from the Giants in the Casey McGehee deal over the winter, Flores owns a 2.06 ERA with a 37/11 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings over seven starts in Double-A this year. Frisaro writes that the 23-year-old would function as rotation depth.
May 19 - 10:32 AM

Marlins optioned RHP Kendry Flores to Double-A Jacksonville; re-assigned RHPs Nick Wittgren and Trevor Williams, INF Avery Romero and OF Austin Wates and Kenny Wilson to minor league camp.

No surprise cuts among this bunch. Acquired over the offseason from the Giants in the Casey McGehee deal, Flores will be tested out at Double-A for the first time in 2015.
Mar 15 - 8:54 AM

Marlins acquired RHP Kendry Flores and RHP Luis Castillo from the Giants for INF Casey McGehee.

The 23-year-old hurler has a good feel for pitching and pinpoint command and is coming off a 2014 campaign where he registered a 4.09 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 112/32 K/BB ratio in 105 2/3 frames at High-A San Jose. He should begin the 2014 season at Double-A.

Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun Sentinel reports that the Marlins will receive minor league right-handers Kendry Flores and Luis Castillo from the Marlins in exchange for Casey McGehee.

The 23-year-old Flores spent the 2014 season as a starter at High-A San Jose where he posted a 4.09 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 112/32 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. He has plenty of talent, though is still a long way away from being an option at the major league level.

Giants prospect RHP Kendry Flores was dominant on Sunday, striking out 13 batters while allowing two runs in seven innings for High-A San Jose.

The 22-year-old yielded only three hits in the outing (though two of them left the yard) and also walked a batter. Flores was shaky over the season's first two months, posting a 5.94 ERA, .827 opponents' OPS (a product of nine home runs allowed) and 49-18 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 50 innings (10 starts). However, the right-hander has taken a step in the right direction in his three June starts, registering a 2.04 ERA and 27-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 17 2/3 innings.

Giants prospect RHP Kendry Flores dominated on Tuesday, allowing three hits and a walk with nine strikeouts in six shutout innings for High-A San Jose.

Flores, 22, was signed by the Giants in 2009 and spent four years in the system before making his full-season debut last year. Making 22 starts for Low-A Augusta, Flores posted a 2.73 ERA and stellar 137/17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 141.2 innings. Pitching in the hitter-friendly California League this year, the right-hander owns a 3.00 ERA and 18/3 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 18 innings. Flores is still a few years away from reaching the major leagues, but his excellent command, age and spot on the Giants' 40-man roster should help him begin to move up the ladder this season.

Giants optioned LHP Jose De Paula and LHP Mike Kickham to Triple-A Fresno; optioned RHP Kendry Flores and RHP Hunter Strickland to High-A San Jose; reassigned RHP Jason Berken and RHP Mitch Lively to minor league camp.

Flores, added to the 40-man roster in November, went 10-6 with a 2.73 ERA and 0.92 WHIP over 141-plus innings at Class-A Augusta. The Giants claimed De Paula off waivers from the Padres in November. He and Kickham will provide bullpen insurance at the Triple-A level.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 12:32:00 PM

Giants purchased the contract of RHP Kendry Flores from Class-A Augusta.

It was a no-brainer, as the 21-year-old went 10-6 with a 2.73 ERA and 0.92 WHIP over 141-plus innings at Augusta. He's probably at least two years away from the big leagues.
