Mets' Wilmer Flores not in lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores is not in the lineup for a second straight day Sunday against the Nationals.

Flores has started 21 of his team's 25 games at the shortstop position, but Ruben Tejada will get the call for a second straight day. Tejada was 1 for 3 Saturday but is just 4 for 21 with three walks and two doubles on the season, while Flores has hit .240/.278/.387 with three home runs and eight RBI in 75 at-bats. Flores has also committed errors in three straight starts.

"We're hoping a couple of days refreshes him and gets him back on track," manager Terry Collins said Sunday morning, per ESPN New York.

The Mets are favorites (-110) against the Nationals Sunday.

Mets may leave Wilmer Flores on bench Sunday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores sat out Saturday's game, and he may get a second consecutive day off on Sunday. 

Manager Terry Collins said that Flores needs a mental break. He committed his seventh error of the season on Friday, although Collins said that didn't lead to the benching. 

"After last night, you can tell, this guy just needs to take a deep breath and forget about it for a day," Collins said, per NJ.com. "With Monday off, we've talked about whether or not we even give him tomorrow (Sunday) off. Just to let him get some energy back, forget about what's happened and let's move forward."

Mets GM Alderson: Wilmer Flores has 'plenty of room' despite errors
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters he's preaching patience with shortstop Wilmer Flores. Alderson said Flores has "plenty of room" despite his errors, per the Wall Street Journal.

"This is not a hope and a prayer," Alderson said.

Flores committed his sixth error of the season Thursday night against Washington, and it proved to be costly. He botched a double-play ground ball in the fourth inning, which led to a three-run inning for Washington in an 8-2 victory over New York.

Flores remained in the lineup and will bat sixth Friday night against Max Scherzer. He is 0 for 5 in his career against Scherzer. In 21 games, Flores is hitting .254 (18 for 71) with two doubles, three homers and eight RBI.

Mets' Collins continues to preach patience with Wilmer Flores
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores committed his sixth error of the season Thursday against the Nationals, and Thursday's mistake was very costly. Flores bungled a likely double-play grounder in the fourth innning, which led to a three-run inning for Washington on its way to an 8-2 win.

Mets manager Terry Collins said the error “changed the tide, no question about it," per The Wall Street Journal. However, the Mets skipper continues to preach patience with Flores.

“When we decided he was going to be the shortstop, we realized there might be a couple rough spots,” Collins said. “I think you have to be a little patient and continue to tell Wilmer, ‘Listen, you’ve just got to slow down, relax and make the plays.'"

The Mets announced after Thursday's game they are promoting infield prospect Dilson Herrera from Triple-A Las Vegas. However, Herrera is expected to play at second base, with Daniel Murphy moving to third base in David Wright's absence. For now, Flores' job is safe, despite his defensive woes.

“Sometimes things don’t go your way,” Flores said. “Nobody wants to make an error. I just got to shake it off.”
