News: The Mets could begin 2015 with Flores as their starting shortstop, but that looks to be a fallback option, the NY Daily News reports. "I know there are fans out there that don't want to hear it, but if we had to go into the season with Flores as our shortstop, I'm certainly not in a panic mode at that point," GM Sandy Alderson said.
Impact: Flores has some pop in his bat, but he doesn't profile as a typical shortstop. The Mets will explore several options this offseason to add a shortstop, but if they fail to do, Flores will go to spring training as the favorite to earn the starting nod.
