WILMER FLORES RUMORS

How Collins Views Wilmer Flores

The following transcript is courtesy of Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. It’s a conversation between reporters and Terry Collins at Citi Field regarding Wilmer Flores. Reporter: ”When you take a look at Wilmer Flores, when he was up here in May, when he played in five consecutive games, he hit. When he plays every other game he doesn’t hit. Is now the time to see what Flores...

Who do the Mets turn to at shortstop?

Somehow it feels wrong writing this just days after Ruben Tejada took a mid-90s fastball to the head, but there’s no denying shortstop – and left field – has been a weakness for the New York Mets. Tejada’s numbers improved some as the 2014 campaign progressed, but a .235/.347/.292 slash with mediocre defense isn’t going to wow any competent front office as a starter. So...

Wilmer Flores To Join The Team in Milwaukee Today

Wilmer Flores is en-route to join the Mets in Milwaukee for their series opener tonight against the Brew-Crew. There has been no corresponding move as of yet. None of the Mets beat writers had the story, as it was first announced on the Mets twitter account. Some speculation can be made on this. It is possible that Ruben Tejada did not feel well when he woke up today and might be...

Wilmer Flores or Daniel Murphy: A decision needs to be made

Since Sandy Alderson took over as the general manager of the New York Mets, offense has been the need. Through the draft, Alderson and Co. have attempted to replenish a minor league system that desperately needed offense. They signed guys like Curtis Granderson in the hopes that he can give the lineup a boost over the next four seasons. At one position, second base, the Mets have...

Mets Minors: Wilmer Flores finds his power stroke

I was asked over the weekend, “Should the Mets fire Terry Collins?”  My answer, “Yes.” My reason is not what most people might say.  Collins is guilty of one solitary cardinal sin, in my eyes.  He insisted on playing Ruben Tejada over Wilmer Flores.  “But Flores wasn’t hitting!” Yes, as a pinch hitter/spot starter, he was hitting .225 which isn’t great.  Tejada...

New York Mets: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

Pitching and hitting has been a recurring problem for the New York Mets, and the ballclub has been scrambling to step up their roster as they now sit 6 games below .500, but there have been some notable improvements for the past week.

What should we expect offensively from Wilmer Flores?

Shortstop has been a black hole for the Mets in 2014 and they have decided to punt defense and go with their best internal option by promoting long-time prospect Wilmer Flores from Triple-A. Flores is riding a hot streak where in his last eight games he has a 1.500 OPS thanks to seven extra-base hits in his last 29 ABs. For the season, Flores has a .307/.360/.500 line, which would...
