Flores is not in Friday's lineup against the Rockies. Flores will open the second half of the season on the bench, as the Mets trot out their lineup with T.J. Rivera manning the hot corner and Lucas Duda drawing the start at first. Although Flores is not an everyday starter, the 25-year-old has posted a slash line of .278/.308/.445 with seven home runs and 25 RBI this year, and should earn solid playing time moving forward.
Flores (leg) is in the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, batting fifth and playing second base. Flores was sidelined the past few days due to leg cramps, but it seems like the issue has subsided enough to allow him to crack the starting lineup one last time before the All-Star break. He'll spell Asdrubal Cabrera at second base for the day, although Flores seems to be locked into a reserve utility role even now that he's healthy.
Flores (leg) is out of the lineup against the Cardinals on Saturday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. Flores has been dealing with leg cramps in the past few days, and he'll take a seat for the third straight game as he recovers. T.J. Rivera continues to start at third, while Flores will likely remain out of the lineup until after the All-Star break before settling back into his reserve role for the Mets.
Manager Terry Collins said that Flores is currently dealing with leg cramps, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. This doesn't seem like an issue that would keep him out for an extended period of time, although it is possible that he sits out most of the weekend given that he'll effectively get a week off with the All-Star break coming up. Flores will likely continue to act as a reserve bench player even when he is healthy, however.
Flores is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies. Flores -- who is currently hitting .285 with a .313 OBP -- will be stationed on the bench for the third time in the past four games. The hot-hitting T.J. Rivera will take his place at third base, batting sixth.
