Flores (shoulder) tossed five hitless innings in a game with High-A Jupiter on Monday. Flores missed roughly six weeks of action after injuring his shoulder in May, but he has recovered from his setback and is back in action. It should not be long before he moves back to Triple-A New Orleans, where he opened the season.
Flores (shoulder) was optioned to Triple-A Louisiana on Sunday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Flores was called up to serve as the Marlin's 26th man during Saturday's doubleheader, but had to leave his start after three innings due to a right shoulder strain. That injury ended up landing the right-hander on the disabled list, but since he was just a temporary player, he will be placed on the minor league DL. Once ready for activation, it will be at the Triple-A level, where Flores owns a 2.59 ERA on the season.
Flores (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday. The Marlins acted quickly in moving Flores to the DL after the right-hander was forced to exit Saturday's start against the Nationals in the fourth inning with a right shoulder strain. Flores was only making a spot start with the Marlins playing a doubleheader, so the team won't need to find a replacement for him in the rotation.
Flores left Saturday's start after three innings due to a right shoulder strain, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. He is considered day-to-day. The young right-hander was called up to be the Marlins' 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader in Washington, but his abbreviated appearance will tax a Marlins bullpen that already had to throw 3.1 innings in Game 1. Flores allowed a hit and three walks while striking out one batter in his outing Saturday before being relieved by Jose Urena. It's unclear if he'll be ready to make his next scheduled start at Triple-A New Orleans due to his shoulder strain.
Flores will be called up as the 26th man to start Game 2 of the Marlins' doubelheader Saturday. He'll return to Triple-A after Saturday's spot start, but Flores has posted steady results at New Orleans through six minor league starts in 2016 (2.59 ERA, 1.35 WHIP). Don't expect much in terms of strikeouts, however, as Flores has fanned 66 batters in 90 innings at the Triple-A level since the start of last season.
