Wilmer Flores

Wilmer Alejandro Flores Garcia
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 190 lbs.
Born: August 6, 1991 in Valencia, Carabobo, VZ
Signed: 2007 by the Mets
Departed: non-tendered, December 2018

 

Wilmer became a Met in 2013 after years of speculation and hype, taking over most of the third base duties while David Wright was on the disabled list.Two years later had become, against all odds, the starting shortstop.The following two years he spent much of his time at second base, and in 2018 made the most starts at first base, completing an unlikely trip backwards around the infield as a starting player.His teary-eyed anticipation of a proposed trade to Milwaukee at the 2015 trade deadline endeared him to Mets fans in a way that seemed almost unique among the sporting populace.Unfortunately, Wilmer developed early-onset arthritis in both of his knees that was revealed late in the 2018 season, and was not offered a contract for the following year.The card shown here is a Cream of the Crop mini refractor from 2013 Bowman Chrome, and Wilmer appears on other cards below.
