Mets INF Wilmer Flores went 1-for-3 with a double in a rehab game with Single-A St. Lucie on Tuesday night.
It was the first rehab game for Flores, who has been on the disabled list since May 28 with back soreness.
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reported that the plan is for Flores to rejoin the Mets at some point during their 10-game road trip.
"I feel good now," Flores told NorthJersey.com's Matt Ehalt. "You get discomfort like this all the time. I thought that's what it was. I tried to play through it with treatment. It didn't go away like I thought it would. It was tough."
"He will not have missed that much time," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said regarding a possible rehab assignment. "Being a bench player already in his career, he's gone quite a long time between at-bats. We'll have to see when that time comes."
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.
