The athletic 5-foot-9 160 pound low angle lefty showed a better FB than on Thursday, touching 86 and working 81-85 today.  He mixes tempos to his delivery and absolutely attacks hitters with his FB.  He doesn’t throw many secondary pitches, but did bust out a CH at 71 and a SL at 69.  His innings don’t take long – his works fast, throws strikes and forces early count contact.

5’9 160-pound frame. Fastball was up to 83 MPH, from a low ¾ slot.  Added angle by throwing slightly across his body. Tons of life to his arm side with sink. Works into front side well, rotating around lead leg to get the most out of his lower half. Sweeping breaking ball was 67-78 MPH, a tough look for lefties and occasionally went backfoot with it to righties. Changeup had dept and quality arm speed at 69-71 MPH.

10/14/18 - 5-foot-9, 160-pound frame. Flores is an intriguing 2-way prospect. On the mound, a low 3/4 arm slot and 80-82 mph fastball generates heavy arm side run and sink. A slightly closed front side help him hide the ball well and creates big angle/deception. Consistently threw sweeping curveball in zone at 65-66 mph. Change-up at 69-71 mph, is still developing and floats out of the hand at times. Profiles as left-on-left reliever at the nexy level. Offensively, shows rhythm and balance in aggressive swing; 85 mph exit velo. Possesses strong forearms and generates impressive bat speed with a short path to the ball. Ran 7.58 60-yard dash that could make Flores more of a pitching prospect or possible 1B/DH who can contribute as a two-way player.
