Now Commenting On:

Wilmer Flores finished his season with Los Bravos de Margarita hitting .272 with a .338 OBP, .410 SLG, and a .748 OPS with five home runs and 20 RBI in 195 at-bats.

In his final ten games, Flores hit just .176 with no extra base hits or RBI with four walks and eight strikeouts in 34 at-bats.

In 130 games for Single-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton in 2012, Flores hit .300 with 18 home runs and 75 RBI with 38 walks and 60 strikeouts in 493 at-bats.

Flores started off real well this winter but he cooled off considerably as the season progressed. He struck out 30 times in 195 at-bats this winter, he generally struggled with runners in scoring position - he hit only .178 in 45 at-bats - and he struggled against right-handed pitching this winter as well, hitting only .247 against them in 146 at-bats. I don't worry too much about these numbers since it's a relatively small sample against a lot of unfamiliar competition. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how he progresses this season and seeing if he can establish himself at a position which is useful for the big league club in the future.
