According to Adam Rubin of ESPN.com, “the Mets have pretty much everyone in camp, including position players, even though those players are not required to report until Thursday.”
The two players that were invited and still weren’t in camp are Omar Quintanilla and Wilmer Flores. Flores was due to arrive this morning, after finishing his second stint at the fitness camp in Michigan.
I’m sure the buzz surrounding Flores, when he finally arrives, will be as intense as it was around Noah Syndergaard yesterday. Everyone seems excited to see if the camp has helped Flores’ speed and agility—both of which have been question marks for years.
Flores is one of the players that Mets fans should keep a very close eye on this spring.
