Mets prospects Wilmer Flores, named the Pacific Coast League Player of the Week, and Dario Alvarez, named the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week, both earned top honors in their respective leagues this week.
Flores has hit a home run in five straight games with Triple-A Las Vegas, during which he has 15 RBI.
After his postgame demotion on June 25, Flores has an 11-game hitting streak in Las Vegas. The only game he didn’t hit safely in was his first, on June 26.
In Single-A, Alvarez turned in two clean outings over the course of the week, giving up just five hits over 10 1/3 total innings for Savannah. On June 30, he pitched five shutout innings. His July 5 start yielded only one run, unearned. He struck out eight batters in each outing, and walked only one in each start.
He has a 0.87 ERA this year with Single-A Savannah.
