When he was in the Seattle Mariners system, outfielder Ramon Flores suffered a pretty bad ankle injury in August that would of course force him to miss the remainder of the 2015 season.
The Mariners acquired Flores from the Yankees in July, but they then flipped him to the Brewers earlier this off-season for infielder Luis Sardinas, helping the Brewers gain more outfield depth, a very strong spot in their farm system.
Flores hasn’t been able to do much with the ankle as you would expect, but per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Flores has been cleared to participate in all Brewers drills this spring:
#Brewers OF Ramon Flores, who had bad ankle fracture last year, has been cleared for all drills after finishing rehab. Said he feels good.

Flores turns 24 in March. He batted .308/.401/.454 with 9 home runs and 41 runs batted in with the Mariners and the Yankees combined at the Triple-A level.
