Mets SS Wilmer Flores keys offense in Saturday win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores didn't perform like an eight-hole hitter Saturday night against Miami. And he didn't perform like a batter with no multi-hit games this season.
Flores slugged a two-run homer to cap a three-run sixth and added a single in the victory. He nudged his average 40 points to .222 in the process and is batting .300 in his last six games.
Mets' Wilmer Flores slugs three-run home run vs. Marlins
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 7-5 win over the Marlins Thursday.
"Tonight was a big step forward for him," Collins said of Flores after the game, per MLB.com. "It was huge for us, and also for Wilmer. There has been a lot written about how high expectations are for him offensively, and you have to live up to expectations. I think tonight might really jumpstart him."
Flores came up with two men on and his team down three runs in the fifth inning and was able to tie the game with his first home run of the season. He has hit .172/.250/.310 while collecting four runs. His three RBI Thursday were his first of the season.

Flores was hit by a pitch in the second inning by David Buchanan, but was able to stay in the game Tuesday. He went 0 for 2 with a run scored and is hitting .160 this season.
Mets' Alderson on Wilmer Flores: 'It hasn't been super'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Monday that he hasn't been completely satisfied with the performance of shortstop Wilmer Flores over the first week of the season, The Star-Ledger reports.
"It hasn't been super," Alderson said about Flores' opening week. "He's made some good plays. He's made some mistakes. He hasn't hit yet, but that's true of about six or seven of our guys. Wilmer is one of those guys that doesn't let things bother him typically. As long as we don't get to the point where we allow that to affect him then I think he'll be fine."
Flores is just 3 for 19 with one double in six games, and he's already made three errors at the shortstop position in just one week of play. The infielder made four errors as a shortstop in 2014 across 443 1/3 innings.
Wilmer Flores (foot) returns to Mets' Grapefruit League lineup
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Wilmer Flores returned to the Mets' lineup and will hit second Thursday night against the Yankees in Grapefruit League play, according to ESPN. Flores was sidelined since Sunday, after he fouled a pitch off his left foot. He is hitting .342/.350/.605 in 38 at-bats.
|2014 summary: The Mets toyed with using Wilmer Flores at shortstop during part of the first half, but they committed to him in earnest in August, and he served as an everyday player down the stretch. He wasn't able to translate his power numbers from the Pacific Coast League (13 home runs in 220 at-bats) to the majors (six home runs in 259 at-bats), but Flores did prove to be a good contact hitter with a 12 percent strikeout to at-bat ratio. That didn't help Flores to compile a high batting average, as he hit .251, and a 10 percent popup rate played a role in that middling mark.|
Playing time status: Flores is the frontrunner to be the Mets' opening day shortstop, though they could continue to look at external options in the offseason and as the season progresses.
2015 outlook: Because Flores' role is uncertain, he can go undrafted in most mixed leagues. He does have the potential to hit for power and average, so he's worth monitoring as a possible waiver pickup, and he is a worthy use of a draft pick in NL-only leagues.
