Spinners' Flores Is Third Man In On Miley Deal

You already know Rubby De la Rosa and Allen Webster, but the third played included in the Wade Miley deal is now revealed as 20-year old infielder Raymel Flores. The 5'9" Dominican played for the Class A Lowell Spinners last year—hitting .282, with a .344 OBP. According to, Flores has emerging defensive skills and "plus-plus speed", but is sub-par offensively. All in all, it seems strange that the deal was held up for so long by the Diamondbacks for a low-tier prospect like Flores.
