Wilmer Flores exits Wednesday’s game with lower back stiffness
The Mets have been dropping like flies in Philadelphia this week.
Wilmer Flores exited Wednesday’s game running the bases in the fourth inning with a stiff lower back.
Ruben Tejada replaced Flores and took over at shortstop.
Flores has also been dealing with strep throat, which presumably kept him out of the lineup on Tuesday night.
But Flores was confident after the game he would return to the lineup on Friday night at Citi Field.
