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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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....

Giants' Wilmer Flores: Returning Sunday
Flores (hamstring) is expected to be in Sunday's lineup against the Cubs, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
He has been out since Sept. 1 with a strained left hamstring. Brandon Belt, Evan Longoria and Tommy La Stella are all healthy, so there probably won't be everyday at-bats available for Flores down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Nearing return
Flores (hamstring) could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list as early as Sunday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Flores was initially expected to miss a couple weeks after he was placed on the injured list Sept. 2, but manager Gabe Kapler said Wednesday that the infielder could be back in action following a minimal absence. Even if the 30-year-old rejoins the major-league roster without a rehab assignment, he should see fairly regular playing time once he's activated.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Heads to injured list
Flores was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained left hamstring Thursday.
Flores left Wednesday's game against the Brewers with what was originally called hamstring tightness, but it turns out the injury is serious enough to cost him at least 10 days. It looks as though he'll miss at least a bit longer than that, with Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reporting that Flores is expected to miss a couple weeks. Mauricio Dubon was recalled to take his place on the roster, giving the Giants another right-handed bat.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Dealing with tight hamstring
Flores left Wednesday's game against the Brewers with left hamstring tightness, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Flores went 1-for-3 at the plate before exiting. The Giants are expected to face lefties in each of their next three games, which are matchups in which the utility infielder would typically start. The team could wind up with one more lefty in the lineup than normal for those contests if Flores isn't ready to go.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Swats late homer
Flores went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Tuesday in a loss to the Brewers.
Flores' ninth-inning solo shot served as a small protest against a loss that cut the Giants' lead over the Dodgers in the NL West to half a game. The long ball was the 17th of the season for the veteran, and he is only one homer shy of the career-high 18 he amassed with the Mets in 2017. Flores finished August with a .240/.269/.427 slash line, four homers and eight RBI over 26 games.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Tries to spark comeback
Flores went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 loss to Atlanta.
The infielder brought San Francisco within a run with his ninth-inning blast, but the tying run never came. Flores has seen his regular role as a starter end recently, but he's drawn spot starts at first and third base. He could see more starts this weekend with Brandon Belt (bereavement), Evan Longoria (hand) and Kris Bryant (side) all potentially unavailable. Flores has a .249/.320/.438 slash line with 16 homers, 45 RBI, 47 runs scored and a stolen base through 372 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Swats 15th homer
Flores went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a strikeout in a 5-4 triumph over the Rockies on Friday.
Flores took Colorado starter Austin Gomber deep to left center in the first inning to give San Francisco an early lead and later tacked on a single in the seventh. Following an 0-for-9 stretch across six games, the infielder is 3-for-8 with a double and a homer across his last two contests.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Falls into short-side platoon role
Flores will start at third base and bat cleanup Sunday against the Brewers.
Flores had been on the bench for each of the past four games, but he'll get a look at the hot corner Sunday while Kris Bryant moves to the outfield. Following the recent returns of Brandon Belt and Tommy La Stella from the injured list along with the trade-deadline acquisition of Bryant, Flores' starting opportunities will likely come mostly against left-handed pitching moving forward....

Giants' Wilmer Flores: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Flores is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.
Flores rejoined the lineup Tuesday after sitting out a couple games with back soreness, and he'll return to the bench Wednesday. The 29-year-old has an .871 OPS with five homers, nine RBI and 10 runs in 18 games since the All-Star break. However, his playing time could take a slight dip with Tommy La Stella (hamstring) making his return from the 60-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: In Tuesday's lineup
Flores (back) is batting cleanup and playing third base Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The infielder returns to the lineup for the first time since Saturday, when he exited the contest with lower-back soreness. Flores did enter Monday's extra-inning contest for three at-bats, one of which resulted in a home run. With two home runs in his last three games, Flores has hit 14 this season and is approaching his career-high mark of 18.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Homers off bench Monday
Flores (back) went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 11-8 extra-inning win over Arizona.
The veteran infielder didn't start the game, but he entered as part of a double switch in the fifth inning. Flores proceeded to go yard in the sixth -- his fifth homer in his last 14 games. Considering that the 29-year-old logged 5.2 innings in the field Monday, it shouldn't be too long before he's back in the starting nine.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Wilmer Flores: Not starting Monday
Flores (back) is out of the lineup Monday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Flores is out of the starting nine for the second straight day after exiting Saturday's contest with soreness in his lower back, though he did appear as a pinch hitter Sunday. The 29-year-old figures to be available off the bench again Monday.... See More ... See Less
