Wilmer Flores sent down to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Flores was called up April 2, and only spent a few days in the majors. He'll likely be up again at the first sign of injury. The team activated Jonathon Niese from the disabled list, which is likely why Flores was demoted.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) The Mets optioned infielder Wilmer Flores to Triple-A Las Vegas, where he will work at shortstop.

"I felt like I played good at short," Flores said of his spring experience, per the New York Daily News. "It took me a game to get comfortable. I was thinking about the position more than just reacting at first. I feel like I got better and I will the more I play there. I will go to Vegas and play some short."


Report: Wilmer Flores will continue to work at shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores made his third spring appearance at shortstop Tuesday, and the experiment is expected to continue, a team source told ESPN. Flores will see ample time at short the remainder of the spring and will also get playing time there in April for Triple-A Las Vegas, as the team searches for viable options at the position.

Barring a roster move, Ruben Tejada is expected to open the season as the Mets' starting shortstop, with Omar Quintanilla expected to be the backup shortstop.


Wilmer Flores to start at short Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores will get the start at shortstop Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Flores hasn't played the position since 2011, but the team wants to give him a shot during camp. While there's a chance he could displace Ruben Tejada at the position, Flores will likely begin the year in the minors. Flores has played short in the late innings during the spring, but this will be his first start at the position.


Wilmer Flores expected to get start at shortstop next week


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores is expected to start at short soon, according to ESPN.

Wilmer Flores draws Edgardo Alfonzo comparison


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins reiterated Sunday he intends to get infielder Wilmer Flores playing time at shortstop this spring.

"First of all, I tip my hat to him. He's got a whole different body right now than he did at the end of the season," Collins said about Flores, per ESPN. "He went to the [fitness and nutrition] camp in Michigan. He looks tremendous. He came in lighter. He came in more athletic. I'm going to let him play some shortstop, but I want to see him at second. I want to see him at third."

While his defense remains a work in progress, Flores has proven he can get the job done at the plate and his offensive skills could help him land a spot on the roster this spring.

"The bat potential is off the charts," Collins said. "Everybody talks about what a big RBI guy he is, what he's going to be. Somebody told me yesterday they've watched him in winter ball for a few years and he reminds them of Fonzie [Edgardo Alfonzo]. That is a big statement. And I don't like to compare guys. But that is a big statement, because Edgardo was an outstanding offensive player. And if that's what Wilmer Flores is going to be, obviously you have to find a position for him to play."


Wilmer Flores will play everyday, but maybe not in the majors


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores will be used in a full-time role, but it's unclear if that will be in the majors, according to the New York Daily News.

Flores is expected to play some shortstop during the spring, and could win that spot if he plays well. But if he isn't able to win that spot, Flores will likely begin the season in the minors. Manager Terry Collins said Flores is at the point in his career where he needs daily at-bats. "I think with what we have on the infield if he's not going to get a lot of playing time, he’s got to go play, at his age," Collins said. "The ceiling on his bat is too high. He’s got to get at-bats."

Collins added that if Flores' bat comes around, he could be a middle of the order hitter. Last season, Flores hit .211 in 95 at-bats. 


Wilmer Flores to be used at short this spring


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores will see some time at shortstop this offseason, according to the Star-Ledger

Flores hasn't played the position since 2011, but the team is interested to see how he'll perform. Flores spent most of the winter working on his conditioning. Flores is confident in his abilities to pick up the position again. "I played for years," Flores said. "It’s not going to be a new position. I’m sure I can play."

Flores hit .211/.248/.295 in 95 at-bats last season.


Mets pondering moving Wilmer Flores back to shortstop?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Mets infielder Wilmer Flores began his pro career as a shortstop before his lack of mobility at the position forced the team to move him around the infield.

Well, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said if Flores' offseason conditioning program pays the type of dividends they hope, then Flores could get some reps at shortstop this spring, per MLB.com.

"I don’t think we’d rule it out," Alderson said in a telephone interview. "Why should we? I think we have to see how spring training plays out for him -- is there going to be a spot for him in the lineup? Is there not? Is he going to be a bench player for us? Is he going to go to Las Vegas?"

Flores spent the offseason going through a team-supervised conditioning program instead of playing winter ball in Venezuela. The team wanted Flores to focus on his overall health.

"It became clear, if you watched him play last year and run the bases … that [conditioning] was an area that needed to improve," Alderson said. "Since he’d never done any conditioning at all, you say to yourself, ‘Gee, there may be substantial opportunity for improvement. Let’s see what happens. Let’s try it.’ And that’s what we’ve done. We won’t know the benefits of that until we get down to spring training. 

"I wouldn’t say [Flores to shortstop] is dead. I think that one of the things we want to see is how well he has done with his training regimen in Michigan."

Mets could rest Wilmer Flores for a week


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

In the one at-bat, he almost fell down. I just think it's causing him more problems and, again, he wants to play. ... But we also have got to be careful we don't hurt him in a situation where we lose half the winter trying to rehab his ankles."
