Go look at the mediocrity that a bunch of teams are throwing out there at 2B and tell me that again.
Flores is an above-average bat at that position. He might also be a below-average glove, but sacrificing offense for defense at a few positions is okay (especially if we'll have Rosario at SS and Lagares in CF). I imagine 2B will be by-committee next year between Flores and TJ anyways.

Evans is similar to Reynolds in that he had one great BABIP-fueled season surrounded by a bunch of meh. Evans isn't the defender Reynolds is, though.

Evans is a chubbier Donovan Solano. Maybe a bit more pop.

Not to get over analytical, but they had a couple injuries and he was standard depth. No reason for a team to be short-handed in September.
The downside, they release him from the 40 and another tea takes him (unlikely, I think, but theoretically possible this move could mean they lose him).
The upside - they give a kid a look at the majors and they don't run the risk of playing d'Arnaud at 3rd again.
I applaud the mets for giving guys who've been in the minors for years a September look when there's an opening.
