Before yesterday’s 5-2 win over the Padres, Wilmer Flores ran the bases at Petco Park.
After the game, Terry Collins told reporters Flores did not suffer any setbacks, his ankle is ok and should be able to play tonight.
Flores injured his ankle earlier this week in Los Angeles after tripping over third base – he pinch hit during Wednesday night’s game but had to be run for upon reaching base.
Flores has hit .286 with a .333 OBP, one home run and nine RBI in eight games since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas. He has not started a game since Monday, and last appeared in a game on Wednesday.
