      Mets' Wilmer Flores: Says he'll be 100 percent after working out at full strength

      Flores worked out at full strength and said he'll be 100 percent for spring training, Marc Carig of Newsday Sports reports. Flores removed his walking boot just over a week ago, so it's a good sign that he's progressing fairly quickly. He'll likely act as a super utility man going forward for the Mets as long as he recovers fully from the injury.

      Mets' Wilmer Flores: Sheds walking boot

      Flores, who fractured a bone in his left ankle after getting hit by a pitch in winter ball on November 26, has shed his walking boot and is working out in the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, ESPN New York reports. Flores is slated to be a super-utility player, seeing time at all four infield positions, following the acquisitions of Neil Walker and Asdrubal Cabrera. In addition, he would likely replace David Wright at third base if Wright's bad back forces him out of action for any extended period of time. Flores could end up with 400+ plate appearances, giving him solid value in NL-only leagues and some value in mixed ones.

      Mets' Wilmer Flores: Injures ankle during winter ball

      Flores will not need surgery after fracturing a bone in his ankle while playing winter ball, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports. Considering it was a non-displaced fracture, Flores is expected to be ready for spring training come 2016. The 24-year-old was in the running for the starting shortstop job, but with the Mets opting to tender a contract to the arbitration-eligible Ruben Tejada, both players now could have the opportunity to win the job outright heading into the regular season.
