They're both CFers who project to be corner OFers.
Thompson was drafted in 2009. He' may be ready for the Majors by 2014. He has power (25 HR/96 RBI/31 2B combined in 2012). Good glove with a plus throwing arm. His downfall is that he K's a ton, 166 in 2012.
Hawkins was a 1st RD pick in 2012 (13th overall) so he is a few years away. He said to have a very good bat with power to all fields. Good glove with a plus throwing arm.
"As far as what I personally would expect in return."
I would love for the Dbacks to acquire Asdrubal Cabrera in return for Chris Owings and David Holmberg, but to expect it is completely unrealistic except in a fantasy league.
Until the 2012 season, Flores played SS since being signed. I'm assuming he's a decent athlete.
Flores is a big kid and the Mets played him mostly at 3b last year, but he also got some games at 2b and 1b. Flores probably has a projected MLB ETA of 2014, so with the Mets unsure of Wright's future, putting him at third last year wasn't a bad move.
He's a big kid and although he could probably handle 2b for a few years, he'll probably outgrow the position. There was always talk that he would end up as a corner OFer, but he's not very fast.
This year will be interesting. If he remains at 3B, he'll likely be a trade chip. If the Mets intend to keep him, he'll obviously be moved to another position.
