Flores, 24, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 12 with a strained left hamstring. The earliest he can be activated from the DL is next Friday.
Flores will likely take over at first base for the injured Lucas Duda upon his return.
Original Report – May 12
Wilmer Flores is heading to the 15-day DL. The Mets’ beloved utility man was seen packing his bags after the team’s 4-3 win in LA and the news broke moments later that he had been placed on the disabled list with a left hamstring injury.
Flores hurt the hamstring in Monday’s series opener and tried to play through it on Tuesday. He will fly to New York where team doctors will examine him.
Flores has struggled this season (.180 BA with 1 home run) but had started to hit better recently.
