News: Flores left Wednesday's game after being hit by a pitch but is fine.
Impact: Flores should be fine going forward, but it's worth noting that he did get hit by a pitch in case something were to surface in the next few days. He is expected to serve as the Mets' starting shortstop in 2015, with Dilson Herrera and Ruben Tejada also potentially being in the mix.

News: Flores has been working on his footwork and range this offseason during winter ball in Venezuela and through a workout program in St. Lucie, SNY.tv reports.
Impact: As it stands at the outset of spring training, Flores has the inside track to begin the year as the Mets' starting shortstop. Offensively, he hits enough to be an above average contributor from either middle-infield spot, but his glove needs to improve in order for him to remain a part of the team's everyday plans in 2015.
