— Player Notes
Advice: He'll be shut down for another couple days and could very well be done for the year, unless the Mets can muster a deep postseason run. Flores hasn't appeared in a major league game since September 10 due to a bone bruise in his left wrist. He was slashing .267/.319/.469 with 16 homers and 49 RBI in 307 at-bats.

Advice: He isn't close to swinging a bat and has already received two cortisone shots since going down with a bruised wrist two weeks ago. Flores could return if the Mets make a deep postseason run but it's a near certainty he won't be back for the final week of the regular season. Assuming that's the case, Flores will close out the 2016 campaign with 16 HR, 49 RBI and a .267 average across 307 at-bats.

Advice: Collins deemed the worry-level surrounding Flores' wrist as a "DEFCON 4," so that is somewhat disconcerting. The team had hoped that the 25-year-old infielder would be able to return to the lineup against Phillies southpaw Adam Morgan on Thursday. Flores is currently sidelined by a left wrist injury suffered in a collision at home plate on September 10. He has been given two cortisone shots in the intervening days, but Collins said Flores has not been able to swing a bat since the collision.

Advice: Flores hasn't appeared in a game for the Mets since suffering a bone bruise in an awkward home-plate collision with A.J. Pierzynski on September 10 in Atlanta, and it's going to be at least another couple days before he can return. T.J. Rivera is at second base and James Loney is at first base on Tuesday night against the Braves.
