Contract Status and Trade Rumors
With a deal earning Flores $526,014 for next season, he will become a free agent in 2020, because of service.
Because of the excess of players New York has in the infield, as well as the age and experience of Flores, it wouldn’t shock me to see the Mets move him. That doesn’t mean it will happen, but if New York can get some immediate help, especially at the trade deadline, it wouldn’t seem out of the ordinary.
While a younger team might love to have Flores because he can play multiple positions, and could see him flourish with everyday playing time, you never know what can happen. We all know what happened last time Flores got “traded.”
