Mets' Wilmer Flores given second cortisone shot for wrist

New York Mets infielder Wilmer Flores was given a second cortisone injection for his injured left wrist.

What It Means:

Flores hasn't played since September 10, when he was involved in an awkward collision at home plate that resulted in a bone bruise. He's expected to be sidelined for another few days. T.J. Rivera is starting at second and James Loney will man first for the Mets on Tuesday.

Flores is enjoying a career-year, recording new highs with a .267/.319/.469 slash, .336 wOBA and .202 ISO across 335 plate appearances this season. He has added 16 home runs, matching his career-high set last year.
