Flowers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers. Flowers has produced three hits and three RBI during the first two games of the Braves' weekend series against the Brewers, but the veteran backstop will head to the bench for the series finale. Kurt Suzuki takes over behind the plate, batting sixth.
Flowers is not in the lineup Thursday against the Giants. Despite hitting two homers in his past three starts, Flowers will head to the bench for Thursday's series finale. Kurt Suzuki will take over behind the dish in his absence.
Flowers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Giants. While the veteran catcher has only six homers on the year, he's enjoying a bit of a power surge at the moment, going yard in three of his last six starts. Flowers' current .325/.427/.478 slash line is even better than the .299/.378/.411 line he managed after the All-Star break last season, and with Kurt Suzuki around to give him regular rest, don't assume Flowers is doomed to wilt over the summer.
Flowers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Despite collecting three hits over his past two ballgames, Flowers will head to the bench Sunday in favor of Kurt Suzuki. Flowers has been starting roughly two out of every three games for the Braves recently with Suzuki catching on his off days. That trend will likely continue moving forward.
Flowers is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals. Flowers logged the past three starts behind the dish for Atlanta, but he'll hit the bench with a day game on tap for Wednesday. Kurt Suzuki will fill in for him for the day.
