  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Returns to lineup

    Flores (back) is starting Friday against the Cardinals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Flores missed two consecutive games due to lower-back tightness, but he'll be back in the lineup after Thursday's scheduled day off. Over his last three games, the 30-year-old has gone 3-for-10 with a homer, a double, six RBI, two runs and two walks. He'll start at the hot corner and bat third in Friday's series opener.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Not starting Wednesday

    Flores (back) isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Flores will remain out of the lineup for a second straight day after being scratched with lower-back tightness Tuesday, but he's feeling better and will likely be available off the bench in Wednesday's series finale against Colorado, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Joc Pederson will serve as the designated hitter while Luis Gonzalez starts in left field.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Scratched with back tightness

    Flores was scratched from the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies due to lower-back tightness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Flores was penciled in to make his fourth straight start at third base Tuesday, but he's instead out of the lineup with the back issue. He should be considered day-to-day for now, while Mauricio Dubon will take Flores' place at the hot corner.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Slugs grand slam Saturday

    Flores went 1-for-3 with a grand slam, a walk and six total RBI in Saturday's 13-7 win over the Cardinals.

    Flores gave the Giants a big early lead with his first-inning grand slam off Steven Matz. Though he didn't collect another hit in the contest, the veteran produced two more runs on a fourth-inning sacrifice fly and an eighth-inning bases-loaded walk. The grand slam was the fifth of Flores' career, and his first since September of 2017, per Sarah Langs of MLB.com. Flores is slashing .269/.340/.419 with three homers and a team-high 19 RBI on the season.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Racks up three hits

    Flores went 3-for-5 in Friday's 14-4 loss to the Nationals.

    Flores has posted multiple hits in four of his last six games, going 10-for-25 (.400) in that span. All three of his hits Friday were singles. The strong hitting has boosted his slash line to .290/.333/.449 with two home runs, 12 RBI, 10 runs scored and five doubles in 18 games. Flores has mainly served as the designated hitter versus right-handed pitchers while moving to third base against southpaws.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Homers, drives in four

    Flores went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a double and an additional run and RBI in an 8-2 win against the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Flores opened the scoring with a second-inning double and tacked on a three-run shot during his next at-bat in the third. The long ball was the veteran infielder's second of the season and helped continue an impressive four-game stretch in which Flores has gone 7-for-16 with two walks, two doubles and a home run. His current .283/.333/.467 slash line is in line with his numbers from his first two seasons in San Francisco.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Drives in three runs

    Flores went 3-for-5 with three RBI, a run and a strikeout in Sunday's 12-3 win over the Nationals.

    Flores has reached base in each of his last seven appearances, and he put together back-to-back multi-hit games to close out the series against Washington. The 30-year-old has five extra-base hits in 14 appearances this year while hitting .283 with eight RBI and seven runs.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Takes seat for Game 2

    Flores is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Flores went 0-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout during the matinee and will head to the bench for the nightcap. Jason Vosler will start at the hot corner in his place for San Francisco.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Breaks out of slump

    Flores went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two additional runs scored and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 13-2 victory over San Diego.

    He was sitting with just one hit entering play Tuesday, but Flores exploded along with the rest of the Giants' offense. Flores singled and scored in the first and second innings before launching a solo shot off San Diego outfielder Wil Myers to push the score to its 13-2 final. He'll look to keep the momentum going as he sees additional playing time with infielders Tommy La Stella and Evan Longoria still on the shelf.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Not in Monday's lineup

    Flores is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Flores started twice at third base and once at designated hitter through the first three games of the season, and he'll be the odd man out Monday. He's 1-for-10 with a double, an RBI and a walk and should continue to have a regular role in the lineup with Tommy La Stella (Achilles) and Evan Longoria (finger) on the injured list.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Set for starting role at third base

    Flores is expected to be the Giants' starting third baseman after Evan Longoria (finger) was ruled out for Opening Day, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Flores is a natural third baseman and the next in line at the hot corner. The 30-year-old played all around the infield last season as a versatile defender. He hit a decent .262/.335/.447 with 18 home runs, 53 RBI and 57 runs scored in 139 contests in 2021. It's unclear how long Flores could hold onto an everyday role given the murky timeline of Longoria's recovery.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Option picked up

    Flores' $3.5 million club option for 2022 was picked up by the Giants on Sunday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Flores will remain in San Francisco for a third straight year after he slashed .262/.335/.447 with 18 homers, 57 runs and 53 RBI across 139 appearances in 2021. The 30-year-old will likely serve as a utility man once again in 2022.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Plates pair in win

    Flores went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-4 win over San Diego.

    The 30-year-old continues to solidify his grip on the starting job at first base with Brandon Belt (finger) out. Flores went 8-for-23 (.348) in his last eight games of the season. He slashed .262/.335/.447 with 18 home runs, 53 RBI, 57 runs scored and a stolen base across 436 plate appearances while seeing time all around the infield. Should he falter during the Giants' postseason run, LaMonte Wade or Darin Ruf could also see time at first base.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Could see more time at first

    Flores went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks in Friday's 3-0 win over San Diego.

    Since Brandon Belt (thumb) went on the injured list, Flores has started three of four games at first base, with the other game going to LaMonte Wade. Flores had been little more than a bench option prior to Belt's injury, but the former has hit .400 (8-for-20) with five walks and two doubles in his last 10 games. Flores could still end up on the short side of a platoon, but he's a natural infielder, which bodes well for his usage in the postseason.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Goes yard in three-hit day

    Flores went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run, an additional RBI, an additional run scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

    Flores didn't waste time to make an impact after being activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday and was San Francisco's best offensive performer in this one. The veteran might be headed for a bench role more often than not in the final weeks of the regular season, but he has shown the ability to produce when given enough at-bats, too. He's hitting .272 with five homers, 11 RBI, eight runs scored and a .787 OPS since the beginning of August.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Activated, starting Sunday

    Flores (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday. He's starting at first base and batting sixth versus the Cubs.

    Flores missed only a minimal amount of time with a left hamstring strain. While he's starting Sunday, the infielder will likely be utilized in a bench role more often than not going forward, although he could see a short-side platoon role with Tommy La Stella at second base.
