Mets INF Wilmer Flores is back with the team after completing his DL stint for lower back soreness. The Mets have optioned Ty Kelly to the minors to make room for Flores.
Flores was rehabbing with Single-A Port St. Lucie on Tuesday night, where he went 1-for-3 with a double. He has been on the DL since May 28 with his back injury.
When Flores landed on the DL, assistant GM John Ricco said Flores has dealt with a "disc" issue, which caused the soreness in his lower back.
The 26-year-old Flores is hitting .248 with three homers and 13 RBI over 46 games this season.
