Mets infielder Wilmer Flores told reporters this past weekend that he's dissatisfied with being a bench player, but will do whatever is asked of him by Terry Collins to help the team win.
"It's going to be hard if you don't play for three days and then have to go out there and do your thing," Flores said, when asked about his likely role in 2017. "I know I can play in the big leagues. I know I can play every day, but it's not my choice when it comes to making the lineup."
Terry Collins said Friday that Flores will get time playing all four infield positions this season, plus see consistent at-bats against left-handed starting pitchers.
"You don't have to like it, but you have to accept it and be ready to play," Collins concluded.
