WILMER FLORES RUMORS

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...

Down on the Farm: @MetsProspectHub’s Mets Minor League Report

Las Vegas 51s Pregame 07/01/14: 49-35 Pregame 07/18/14: 56-43 Record: 7-8 Games Played: 15 The story here is Wilmer Flores going nuclear in the month of July, blasting seven homers in fifty-six ABs, along with four doubles and a triple, good for a triple slash of .357/.387/.839/1.226.

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...

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...
