Career[edit]

New York Yankees[edit]

The New York Yankees signed Flores as an international free agent in 2008.[1] Flores had a .302 batting average for the Tampa Yankees of the Class-A Advanced Florida State League in 2012, and the Yankees added him to their 40-man roster after the 2012 season to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[2]

In the first game of the 2015 season, with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Class AAA International League, Flores hit for the cycle.[3]

The Yankees promoted Flores to the major leagues on May 29, 2015.[4] On May 30, in his first major league game, he started in left field against the Oakland Athletics.[5] The Yankees optioned Flores to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on June 10 when Brendan Ryan was activated from the disabled list.[6] On June 21st, 2015, the Yankees called Flores back up to cover for the injured Mason Williams

Seattle Mariners[edit]

On July 30, 2015, the Yankees traded Flores and José Ramírez to the Seattle Mariners for Dustin Ackley.[7]
