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.... See More ... See Less

Flores went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-3 loss to Atlanta.
Flores has been consistent and powerful lately, batting .289 with four homers and nine RBI over his last 10 games. He's matched his career high with 19 homers this season, and the infielder is a good bet to best that mark with over a month left in the campaign.

Flores (ear) went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Rays.
Flores was out Monday with an ear infection, but it turned out to be a short absence for the infielder. He'd cooled off a bit prior to sitting out a game, going 1-for-12 across his last four contests, though he's still been one of the Giants' better hitters in recent weeks. Flores is up to a .300/.356/.542 slash line with 16 homers, 41 RBI, 39 runs scored and 19 doubles through 88 games this season. If he continues to hold down a starting role, he could make a push for his first 20-homer season.... See More ... See Less
