Flores a Capable Option in Mets' Struggling Offense
Flores has been on fire as of late. Before Thursday's game, Newsday's Marc Carig provided a look at the 24-year-old's numbers:
Flores was struggling to even come close to his numbers last season, when he hit 16 home runs and 59 RBI while batting .263. He is currently hitting .250 with two homers and only nine RBI, so Flores still may not match his 2015 statistics, but at least he is starting to show some life at the plate.
New York ranks second-to-last in the National League with 240 runs scored, so it needs all the firepower it can get offensively. Getting Flores back without missing any time may not provide a major boost offensively, but he's a step in the right direction.
