Flowers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants. After making back-to-back starts behind the plate, Flowers will head to the bench for the series finale. Kurt Suzuki will man the backstop in his stead.
Flowers went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 2-0 win over the Giants. It's his third multi-hit performance in his last four starts, and Flowers has a .333/.455/.528 slash line over his last 10 games with two homers, five RBI and six runs. He remains in a timeshare with Kurt Suzuki, but if Flowers keeps hitting that workload split could begin to tilt in his favor.
Flowers is not in the Braves' lineup Thursday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Kurt Suzuki takes his place in the day game. Expect a Friday return for Flowers, who's surprising many fantasy players by hitting .344/.464/.444 in his first 110 plate appearances of 2017.
Flowers is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Pirates, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Despite riding a five-game hitting streak, Flowers will head to the bench as Kurt Suzuki gets the nod behind the dish. Manager Brian Snitker seems content with the two sharing duties behind the plate, so that will likely continue as long as both keep performing well.
Flowers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals. Despite maintaining an impressive .349/.465/.458 batting line for the season, Flowers hasn't been able to escape a timeshare at catcher with Kurt Suzuki, who has produced home runs in both of his last two starts. Manager Brian Snitker will likely continue to hand both backstops meaningful at-bats while they remain dialed in at the dish, so Flowers will give way to Suzuki in the series finale.
