Mets360 2017 projections: David Wright, Jose Reyes, Wilmer Flores

Today’s multiple projection piece focuses on infielders, with a look at David Wright, Jose Reyes and Wilmer Flores.

Wilmer Flores Is Now Using Theme Song From ‘Friends’ As His Walk-Up Music

Wilmer Flores had three hits Monday, but the New York Mets infielder had a forgetful day on the base paths, being thrown out three times while trying to be a little too aggressive.

But it was his glove that was the story in the early going of the Mets’ game against Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.
