According to the Mets on twitter, infielder Wilmer Flores has been promoted and will join the team.Flores, who turns 22 today, has had an excellent season at hitter friendly Triple-A Las Vegas. In Vegas Flores hit .322/.358/.532 with 35 doubles and 15 home runs. He is on pace to far surpass his career best batting average, slugging percentage, and home run and double totals.Flores has played first and third base at Las Vegas, but has spent the majority of the year playing second base.Flores has always been a highly touted hitter, his problem have come on the defensive end where the Mets haven't found a position for him. He entered the Mets system as a shortstop at the age of sixteen out of Venezuela. His size and lack of speed meant an inevitable move from the position. He committed 26 errors at shortstop in 2010 where he split the year between single-A Savannah and high single-A St. Lucie.Baseball America ranked Flores in the pre-season prospect lists from 2009 to 2011 despite his defensive struggles. He was ranked 47th prior to 2009, 88th prior to 2010 and 59th prior to 2011.The Mets have not yet announced who has been demoted to make room for Flores.   Follow me on twitter: @danny_ss
