Areas for improvement?
Wilmer Flores can do no wrong in my eyes. Even when he’s slumping and at his worst, I have such a love for him that blinds me sometimes. However, there’s always going to be room for improvement.
I would love to see Flores start to punish right-handed pitching the same way that he punishes lefties. Last season against lefties he hit .291 and against righties, .262. His average against righties has increased significantly from the 2016 season where he was only able to hit .232. As I’ve mentioned before Flores is definitely trending in the right direction. Even if this does mean that he’ll forever be a platoon player and “off the bench” guy for the rest of his time with the Mets, we already know he has a flair for the dramatics.
