With a packed infield going into the 2017 season, Wilmer Flores will need to change his game considerably to receive more playing time.

When Wilmer Flores plays consistently, he plays well. The only problem with that equation is that playing time will be limited.

With Asdrubal Cabrera, Neil Walker, Lucas Duda, David Wright, and Jose Reyes going into the 2017 season as the main guys for the infield, Flores will start the year off being a rotational player.

We saw, however, in 2015 that when he’s used as a starter, Flores can handle himself. Setting a career-high in plate appearances and at-bats in 2015, how did he translate that same momentum for the 2016 season?
