Flores' bat was behind because we picked him up as a rule 5 and he skipped two levels. 09 was a heck of a start before his shoulder fell off. This is a guy who, while playing at the MLB level before ready, put up 2.3 WAR in 627 PA and had put up a 0.9 WAR in 09 in only 106 PA. His 09 BB% was around where his 08 AAA BB% was which indicates a 24 year old learning to hit at the MLB level. He had some pop for sure. 20 HR in A+ for the Muts before we picked him up. 8 HR in 301 PA in 08. 4 HR in 106 PA in 09.
I'll still wouldn't bank on anything from him but it would be a great trade piece if he puts up a .750+ OPS for a couple of months while showing signs of his HR power returning. I don't think a return to the .877 he was putting up in 09 is feasible right away.
