Adam Rubin released his weekly Farm Report at ESPN New York this morning, highlighting Matt den Dekker and his journey back from a wrist injury in spring training. He also provided injury updates on some of New York’s top prospects.
Wilmer Flores had to exit Saturday’s game with the 51s early due to an ankle injury. While the injury is said to not be serious, Flores will not be participating in tonight’s Triple-A All-Star game, set to take place in Reno.
Flores was the only representative from Las Vegas named to the All-Star team, and the 51s won’t be sending a player to take his place. Wilmer has put together a solid campaign at the plate in Triple-A this season, hitting .321/.357/.528 with 12 home runs and 75 RBIs. He’s mostly played second base in 2013, but had been penciled in at first base over the final week of games prior to the All-Star break.
Flores was also named the top-performing batter in Triple-A since June 18th, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America.
