Player Outlook
Wilmer Flores put together the best offensive showing of his career in 2023 in what was his age-31 season. The veteran infielder's .284 average, .355 on-base percentage and .509 slugging percentage were all full-season career highs, as were his 23 home runs. Long known as a lefty masher, Flores did his usual tormenting of southpaws in producing an .886 OPS with eight homers in 181 plate appearances against them. He handled righties nearly as well, though, with an .847 OPS and 15 long balls across 273 plate appearances. A glance at Flores' expected stats via Statcast paint a picture of a guy who had luck on his side, as only 10 other players had a bigger spread than Flores' 32-point gap between his xwOBA (.336) and actual wOBA (.368). He's an extreme flyball hitter (46.7 percent) and pull hitter (46.1 percent), which is the recipe for overcoming a weak average exit velocity (86.4 mph), but some regression here is likely.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Heading to bench Wednesday

    Flores is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs. Flores has now hit the bench in two straight matchups with right-handed pitchers, though it's not yet clear if he's moved back into a pure platoon role at first base with the lefty-hitting Trenton Brooks, who gets the start Wednesday but is hitting .143 over 21 at-bats since getting called up from Triple-A Sacramento. Flores, meanwhile, is hitting .212 on the season, and he owns a .198/.291/.287 slash line over 117 plate appearances against righties.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Taking seat Monday

    Flores is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs. Flores had started at first base in each of the Giants' last five games, with three starts coming versus lefties and two coming versus right-handers. Though the Giants seem content to deploy Flores as their primary first baseman rather than a platoon bat while LaMonte Wade (hamstring) is on the injured list, Flores will nonetheless give way to rookie Trenton Brooks on Monday.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Starting at first

    Flores is back in the Giants' lineup versus the Astros on Tuesday. Flores came away with some knee soreness after playing two straight series on turf surfaces in Arizona and Texas. Despite this, he was available off the bench Monday versus the Astros and got a hit in his lone plate appearance. With the 32-year-old starting at first and batting sixth, Trenton Brooks will take a seat.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Dealing with knee soreness

    Flores is dealing with knee soreness, but he's available off the bench Monday versus the Astros, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Flores went 3-for-13 with two solo home runs over the team's three-game series in Texas, but manager Bob Melvin said Monday that the 32-year-old's knee is a little sore after San Francisco's second straight series on turf. There currently doesn't appear to be any long-term concern with the veteran's health.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Swats two homers

    Flores went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in Friday's win over Texas. Flores opened the game's scoring with a solo blast in the second inning before going deep again in the fourth. He's knocked three home runs while driving in seven runs over his last two games. Before that, he was stuck in a 21-game homerless drought, during which he produced a .490 OPS. Flores is now slashing .224/.298/.353 with four home runs and 21 RBI through 52 appearances.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Drives in five in win

    Flores went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run and five RBI in Wednesday's 9-3 win over the Diamondbacks. The Giants launched three homers on the day, but Flores' grand slam off Jordan Montgomery in the third inning proved to be the biggest blow. Flores snapped a 21-game homer drought with the blast, but that May 4 shot was his only other homer on the season. The 32-year-old's five RBI on Wednesday equaled his total from his prior 26 games combined.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Starting again, but stuck in platoon

    Flores will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Flores is starting at first base for the fourth time in five games, but all but one of those starts have come against left-handed pitchers. Even with top first baseman LaMonte Wade (hamstring) on the injured list, Flores looks as though he'll remain in the short side of a platoon while recent call-up Trenton Brooks gets the opportunity to make regular starts at the position versus righties.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Hits first homer of season

    Flores went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 14-3 loss to the Phillies. Flores has gone 6-for-19 (.316) with three RBI, a homer, a double, and a 3:3 BB:K over his last seven contests. It's been more of the same for Flores this year -- he began the year in a utility role, but he's earned a short-side platoon role with LaMonte Wade at first base over the first month of the campaign. The Giants have had good infield health so far, so it's unlikely Flores carves out a much larger role. He's slashing .234/.322/.325 with five extra-base hits, 12 RBI and seven runs scored across 90 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: RBI double in win

    Flores went 1-for-1 with a double and two RBI in a 5-0 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Flores entered in the eighth inning with the bases loaded and immediately smacked a two-run double, which accounted for only his third extra-base hit of the campaign. While he has been on the short side of the platoon with LaMonte Wade at first base, the Giants have found a way to get Flores' bat in the lineup situationally on a regular basis. The 32-year-old has yet to tally a home run in 2024, but given that his slugging percentage (.311) is woefully below his .439 career mark, his power could arrive in short order.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Starting after all

    Flores was added to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. It appeared that Flores would be held out of Monday's contest after taking a tumble Sunday afternoon, but he worked out before the game and ultimately got the green light. He'll man first base and bat fifth.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Not in lineup Monday

    Flores (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Flores injured his shoulder Sunday after tumbling into the dugout trying to catch a foul ball in the first inning. Tyler Fitzgerald will draw the start at first base and bat ninth in Monday's game against Dodgers left-hander James Paxton.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Dealing with shoulder injury

    Flores exited Sunday's matchup with the Padres in the top of the second inning with a right shoulder contusion, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Flores was forced to leave Sunday's series finale with San Diego without even getting an at-bat after he went head over heels into the dugout trying to catch a foul ball in the bottom of the first inning. Luis Matos replaced him in the lineup. Flores will likely undergo additional testing, and more information on his status may be provided following Sunday's contest.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Returning to action Friday

    Flores (knee) is starting at first base and batting third in Friday's split-squad game against the Cubs. The 32-year-old was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to knee soreness, but he'll rejoin the starting nine two days later since it was a minor issue. Flores clubbed 23 homers in 126 games last season and should be a regular lineup piece again in 2024, but he'll likely need to move around the infield in order to see consistent playing time.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Scratched with sore knee

    Flores was scratched from the Giants' Cactus League lineup Wednesday due to knee soreness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. When asked about the injury, Flores said, "it's nothing," so it seems safe to say he should be back in there in a day or two. LaMonte Wade will slide in at first base in Flores' absence.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: No defined role at start of spring

    Flores is not expected to begin 2024 with a set position, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. It's a familiar refrain for Flores, who was a utility player at times in 2023 and still slashed .284/.355/.509 with a career-high 23 home runs and 60 RBI over 126 games. He'll likely have an easier time finding a spot against left-handed pitchers, but manager Bob Melvin notes his splits are acceptable against right-handers. The addition of Jorge Soler likely takes designated hitter away from the places Flores will see time, but he can fill in at a variety of infield positions.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Provides offense in loss

    Flores went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a walk in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Dodgers. Flores was the only Giant to get a hit in the game, knocking an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the third, both off Lance Lynn. Prior to Friday, Flores had gone just 2-for-18 over his last six games. The infielder has been one of the Giants' few steady hitters with a .284/.355/.510 slash line, 23 homers, 59 RBI, 51 runs scored and 22 doubles over 125 games this season.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Returns to lineup

    Flores (knee) is starting at third base and batting third Wednesday against San Diego, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Flores missed two straight starts due to soreness in his right knee, but he was able to pinch hit during Tuesday's contest and will now return to the lineup Wednesday. The 32-year-old has been in a bit of a skid at the plate recently, going just 2-for-13 across his last six games.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Remains out with sore knee

    Flores (knee) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Padres. Flores made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers with right knee discomfort and needs at least one more day of rest and treatment. J.D. Davis is playing third base Tuesday and batting third. LaMonte Wade will cover first base and hit leadoff.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Not starting Monday

    Flores (knee) isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against San Diego, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Flores was lifted from Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers due to discomfort in his right knee, and he'll be held out of the lineup Monday. The Giants have not revealed whether the utility man will be available off the bench.

  • Giants' Wilmer Flores: Exits with knee discomfort

    Flores (knee) exited Sunday's game versus the Dodgers with right knee discomfort, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Flores went 2-for-2 in the contest before he was replaced by J.D. Davis. It doesn't appear to be a long-term concern, but with the Giants fading fast in the wild-card race, Flores may get some extra time off over the last week of the season if he's not feeling 100 percent.
