2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Maybe you have heard this story before: A New York prospect has not quite matched the hype. Hot take, right? Flores is only 375 plate appearances into his major league career, but he has hit .240/.275/.356 in that time while swinging at just about anything in the five-borough area. In the minors, the 23-year-old routinely hit for average, but he is still trying to do that at the major league level. He qualifies at shortstop in all leagues and also second base and third base, depending on your league eligibility rules. The thing is, we’re still talking about a zero-category player who does not hit for power, does not run, and hits in the bottom of the order. His only upside is that the BABIP Gods could bless him with a good run and enable him to pull a .280 average out of the air.

2014

Flores showed he could rake in the minors, but his lack of range and foot speed kept him at Triple-A Las Vegas. He finally received a promotion when David Wright was placed on the DL in early August after he batted 322/.358/.532 with 15 home runs and 86 RBI in 106 games with the 51s. Flores got off to a hot start in the majors, but twisted his ankle a week after his promotion and never seemed to regain his prior form. He saw minimal action after the injury, and received just 31 at-bats in September. The jury is out regarding his ability to play defensively in the majors, since Wright blocks him from becoming a regular at third base. Without a position, Flores may open 2014 back in the minors.

2013

Flores is on the Mets' 40-man roster, but despite a solid 2012 campaign, the team opted not to call him up from Double-A Binghamton. He hit .317/.368/.594 with eight home runs and 33 RBI in 65 games for the B-Mets after posting a .289/.336/.459 line with 10 homers and 42 RBI in 64 games for High-A St. Lucie. The St. Lucie campaign was little surprise, as it was his third year at that level but his success at Double-A helped land him a prominent role back towards the top of the Mets' prospect lists. With David Wright locked in at third, look for Flores to be tried at second and left field. If his power continues to develop and he repeats the plate discipline strides he made last year, Flores should end up at Triple-A Las Vegas this season.

2012

Flores spent 2011 at High-A St. Lucie, posting a disappointing .269/.309/.380 batting line with nine homers, 81 RBI and a 68:27 K:BB ratio in 516 at-bats over 133 games. Because of below-average foot speed and a larger frame, many major league scouts have projected that Flores eventually will change positions from shortstop to either third base or a corner outfield spot. Flores projects to add power as he matures, but he will only go as far as his plate discipline and future power take him, which right now are a major work in progress.

2011

After spending all of 2009 at Low-A Savannah, Flores opened 2010 there again. Despite an up-and-down campaign. Flores showed enough to earn a promotion to High-A St. Lucie, where he hit .300 despite a lack of plate discipline. Flores posted just a 9:40 BB:K ratio at St. Lucie, which is not surprising as he was just 19 and the Florida State League is notorious for being tough on hitters. Flores had 11 HR, 84 RBI an 50 XBH between the two levels, showing why he is the Mets' top hitting prospect. He projects to fill-out as he matures, which along with his lack of a quick first step and range likely will move him away from shortstop, possibly to third or an outfield corner. Flores could challenge for a major-league job in 2012, but 2013 seems a more realistic timeframe.

2010

After a solid 2008 season, Flores regressed somewhat in 2009 at Low-A Savannah to start 2009. The Mets might have moved him up the ladder a bit too quickly, as he was overmatched at times as an 18-year-old in A-ball. Flores has a quick bat and is expected to hit for power, including to the opposite field, as he fills out and matures, and is still regarded as a top prospect. He is a below-average runner, a situation that likely will worsen as he does get bigger, which is one reason why most scouts expect him to move from the middle infield to a corner infield or outfield position. Given the struggles that some of their prospects have had when advanced too quickly, the Mets may now choose to move younger players incrementally up the ladder, so look for Flores to either repeat Low-A or start 2010 at High-A St. Lucie.

2009

Flores, who the Mets signed as a 16-year-old international free agent in August 2007, has advanced up the ladder quicker than anyone anticipated. Flores finished 2008 at Brooklyn of the New York-Penn League and could open 2009 at Low-A. He has power potential and makes good contact, though he could use some tightening of the strike zone, but at this point that's nitpicking given his youth and overall production. There are also questions about where he will end up defensively, due to his likelihood of filling out. Expect the Mets to push him considering their hurried philosophy demonstrated with other young players. Flores' fine year and future potential landed him at No. 29 on the end of season RotoWire Top 100 Prospects list.
