Flores will not play the rest of the season due to a broken nose, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Flores suffered a broken nose after fouling a ball off his face over the weekend, and while there was hope that he would be able to play before the season ends, Thursday's visit with a specialist confirmed otherwise. The 26-year-old utility infielder will end his season with 18 homers and a respectable .271/.307/.488 line in 110 games for the Mets. Jose Reyes, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Matt Reynolds are all expected to help fill in for Flores around the infield down the stretch.
Flores (nose) is still experiencing swelling and will be re-examined Thursday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports. Flores was examined Tuesday, three days after he suffered a broken nose as a result of a foul ball to the face, and the Mets will continue to gauge his progress. There was some talk that Flores could return at some point this week; even if he can't return to action before the end of the homestand, Flores seems to stand a strong chance to play again before the season concludes.
Flores (broken nose), who is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, could return to action as early as this week, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Flores is already in line to see a specialist on Tuesday but has already seen improvements in his breathing, and the prognosis doesn't seem nearly as bleak as it was following the injury. A foul ball off his face resulted in a broken nose, but it's currently looking like a best-case scenario in terms of a projected absence. Look for the team to release further information following Tuesday's consultation.
Flores suffered a broken nose during Saturday's game, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Flores fouled a ball off his face and apparently the injury was as bad as it looked. He figures to miss a decent chunk of time, possibly the rest of the season. Asdrubal Cabrera, Jose Reyes and Matt Reynolds will all be in the mix for starts at third in Flores' absence.
Flores left Saturday's game after fouling a pitch off his face, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Flores was able to walk off the field under his own power, but he was bleeding from his nose. The Mets figure to send Flores for X-rays right away to determine the full extent of the injury.
