Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Mets | Wilmer Flores coming up soon?

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is expected to join the team soon with 3B David Wright (hamstring) on the disabled list, according to a baseball source. Flores has played third base the last two games with Triple-A Las Vegas. He's hitting .322 with 15 home runs and leads the Pacific Coast League with 86 RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Flores' power has developed in each of the last two years at the minors. It's unclear how much he'll play if he comes up, but they probably aren't trying him at third for no reason. He'll likely only be valuable in NL-only leagues in the short term until Wright comes back.
