Not too much out there on Raymel Flores, but he's one of the bigger bonus babies on the 2012 Red Sox DSL squad, so I figured I'd start a thread. Per MLB Trade Rumors, Flores signed for $900k last year and has a strong defensive reputation. At 5-9, I doubt he's projected to be much of a power hitter, but maybe he'll hit a late growth spurt...
Through 9 games (40 PAs):
.316 / .395 / .526, 2 2B, 3 3B, 0/2 SBs
Clearly has some good raw speed if he already has 3 3Bs through just 40 PAs.

.270/.420/.472, 2 2B, 8(!) 3Bs, 3/5 SBs, 18/24 BB/K
Raymel is looking mighty interesting so far as a prospect at this point.

.254/.392/.391. Flores' power has dropped off significantly, but he's still showing good patience at the plate. That said, there's always a few DSL guys who can succeed by taking advantage of the wildness of the pitchers down there.

As expected Flores was assigned to the GCL. The average (.206) is ugly, but he's still walking like a fiend and when he does make contact he's shown solid pop. Haven't heard much about his defense for better or worse.

Flores had a tough year, as he slumped at the finish to wind up with a line of:
165 PAs, .185/.311/.281 (.592 OPS), 9 XBHs, 9 SBs in 15 tries, 25% K%, 13% BB%
Given the bonus he signed for and his relative youth (still just 18), another year to try to figure it out in the GCL seems warranted.

Flores continues to hang around, moving up to Lowell and posting a slightly improved line of .262/.330/.333. He's walked a fair bit but still striking out at a totally unacceptable rate for a guy with basically no power (~30% of his PAs). Has been playing 2B for the most part. SB rate of 13/17 is solid especially since it is only in 55 games. At 19, he's still quite young (2 years younger than the average NYPL hitter), so I'd imagine given his solid-sized signing bonus that he will get another shot in the system next year, likely in Greenville. However, without a bit better contact rate, it's hard to see him progressing much further than that.
