Mets 2B Wilmer Flores has another huge game


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) Second baseman Wilmer Flores must love the California air, as he had another impressive outing Sunday as the Mets rolled to an 8-0 victory over the Dodgers. 

Flores, hitting fourth in the lineup, was 4-for-5 with two doubles and three RBIs and a run scored. For the three-game series, Flores was 10-for-13 with five RBIs, helping to raise his average from .233 to .258.

(7/4/2015) Mets second baseman Wilmer Flores went 3 for 4 in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

Collins says Wilmer Flores at 2B gives Mets 'best infield' alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins said last week that it was a possibility shortstop Wilmer Flores would move to second base upon Daniel Murphy's return from the disabled list.

Murphy is getting closer to a return, but Collins apparently couldn't wait any longer to get a glimpse of Flores at second base, as the 23-year-old infielder made his first start this season at second base Sunday against the Reds.

"This kid played fine at shortstop," Collins said, per NJ.com. "Made a couple of errors that cost us a couple of runs at times. But I looked through the league and he caught the baseball. He can play second base. He showed us that last September. And look in September, we played pretty good with Wilmer Flores playing second, with Dan at third and Ruben (Tejada) at shortstop.

"With Dan coming back, we certainly don't know what the time frame is with David (Wright) and I think this is going to be our best infield that we're going to run out there on a nightly basis."


Mets' Wilmer Flores would be OK with move to second base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins acknowledged Thursday that shortstop Wilmer Flores could move to second base once Daniel Murphy returns from the disabled list, as Ruben Tejada -- who has been playing second and third base with Murphy and David Wright on the disabled list -- would take over at shortstop.

Flores seems just fine with moving to second base.

"I don't mind," Flores told NJ Advance Media. "As long as I'm in the lineup. That's all that matters.

"I feel good in both positions. I feel like I can play. I'll just play anywhere they want me to."


Mets could shift Wilmer Flores to 2B, Ruben Tejada to SS


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2015) The Mets have begun discussions about shifting Ruben Tejada to shortstop and Wilmer Flores to second base once Daniel Murphy returns from the disabled list, a team source told the New York Post. Murphy is expected to play third base with David Wright sidelined.

“That would be the best defensive alignment,” the source said.

The Mets have been hesitant to move Flores because they don't want to break his confidence, according to the Post. However, the team believes he could handle the switch and move back to shortstop later in the season, if needed.

Mets manager Terry Collins ackowledged the report Thursday and said moving Flores to second base is "a possibility." 

"I don't think that's a major shakeup," Collins said, per NJ.com.

Tejada has been bouncing between second and third base while Murphy and Wright have been on the disabled list.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets SS Wilmer Flores out with stiffness


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores is out of the lineup Saturday due to what Mets manager Terry Collins said was "general stiffness," per ESPN.com.

"He came in and said he was real, real stiff yesterday," Collins said. "He's stiff again today. As you guys know, those are signs of a little fatigue setting in. We've got enough guys on the DL. So I'm going to give him a day to rest up."," Collins said of his shortstop.

Mets' Wilmer Flores sticking at shortstop for now


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores will remain the team's starting shortstop for the immediate future, ESPN New York reports.

The Mets have decided to shift second baseman Daniel Murphy to third base, bumping Ruben Tejada back across the diamond to second base. Consideration was given toward moving Flores as well, with the shortstop likely heading to second base while Tejada manned shortstop, but the team will stick with Flores at his current position for now. However, the defensive alignment is subject to change.

"I'm going to stay away from the shortstop position right now because it's a firestorm," Collins said about Flores' role.

Flores has hit .250/.277/.415 with eight home runs and 24 RBI in 176 at-bats.

Mets' Collins on Wilmer Flores: 'I see a completely different player'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Wilmer Flores' slow start to the season is becoming a distant memory. The Mets starting shortstop singled home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning Tuesday against the Phillies, lifting New York to a 5-4 win.

Flores also had a game-tying sac fly in the eighth inning Tuesday and delivered a go-ahead, three-run homer Monday, which helped New York to a 6-3 win.

Flores has had his struggles defensively in 2015, but he is finally turning the corner offensively. He has hit safely in 15 of his last 17 games, while producing four home runs and 13 RBI in that span.

"I truly believe Wilmer's gotten past [his issues]," manager Terry Collins said, per MLB.com. "He realizes there's going to be a day that you're going to make an error. He's got to play through that, and I think he's doing that. We're starting to see a guy who's going to start swinging the bat like we know he can. He's going to put up some offensive numbers that people are going to be pretty impressed by.

"I see a completely different player."


Mets SS Wilmer Flores blasts seventh home run of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores went 1 for 4 at the plate in New York's 6-3 win over the Phillies on Monday. Flores did his damage in the sixth inning when he crushed a three-run homer over the left field wall off of Julio De La Cruz, his seventh of the season.

"Wilmer's a very sharp guy so he gets it, he understands what they're saying. He goes out there with the ability to have yesterday be yesterday and to be ready for today," manager Terry Collins said per ESPN.com. "He made an error one night early in the game and took some abuse, and then the next eight ground balls were hit to him, he fielded them perfectly. He didn't let it get to him and I think that's why as we get deep into this season he's going to be a pretty impressive kid."

Flores is now hitting .252 with 19 RBI in 143 at-bats on the season.


Mets are in no hurry to trade young pitching for a shortstop


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) The Mets are seeming less and less likely to deal from their surplus of young pitching, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. There have been numerous on-going talks about the team possibly looking to deal one of their young arms for a shortstop. 

But as Heyman reports, the Mets are not necessarily rushing to go out and get a shortstop. The club is apparently willing to give Wilmer Flores more time to prove himself. They also have a stock of young shortstops in the minor leagues, including Matt Reynolds, Gavin Cecchini and 19-year-old Amed Rosario.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Flores has started to improve offensively, batting .262 with a .524 slugging percentage, two doubles, three home runs and seven RBI in his last 11 games.

Third baseman Eric Campbell, who hit second the last four games, was moved to seventh in the lineup.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

"I was looking for something up," Flores said to NJ.com. "It was a fastball. He threw it right down the middle, and I was ready for it. I put a good swing on it.

"A good feeling," he said of hitting his team-best sixth home run of the year. "Every time you hit a homer it's a good feeling, but with the bases loaded and in this situation, it feels good. As a team and for myself."

Flores, who went 2 for 4 with four RBI on Saturday, is now hitting .250 on the season as he continues to be the Mets' primary option at short.


Mets still pushing for more offense from Wilmer Flores


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores has struggled on defense so far this season. Manager Terry Collins was hoping his bat would step up, but instead he's struggled there as well, according to ESPN.com.

"If he had 11 home runs and was hitting .285 right now, there would not even be a discussion," Collins said. "He'd be driving in a lot of runs."

However, Collins still believes in Flores.
"I really believe that when we get in the summer, he's going to put up some big numbers," Collins said.
Flores is hitting .240 with five home runs and 11 RBI in 104 at-bats this season.
