Flores is still experiencing swelling after sustaining a broken nose over the weekend in Houston and will be reevaluated Thursday, the Mets announced.
Update – Sept. 3, 1:47 a.m.
Flores underwent X-rays which determined that the infielder had suffered a broken nose after fouling a ball into his face.
“It’s the first time I’ve seen it,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “I’ve seen it off the ground, but I’ve never seen it off the bat. It’s scarier when you go out there and the blood is pouring out of your nose.”
