Wilmer Flores has not hit particularly well during spring training either. It most likely will not help his chances of winning the starting job at shortstop.
Flores is hitting .194 with only seven hits in 36 at-bats. He also has one double, one home run, five RBI and five walks.
There is a possibility that Flores wins the competition at shortstop between himself and Ruben Tejada, but Flores will probably start the season in Triple A and get called up later if Tejada happens to struggle early in the season. There is definitely a chance that Tejada may not play well, and if that happens, look for Flores to become the new shortstop for an extended period of time.
For now, Flores has yet to be reassigned to minor league camp.
