Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Hits bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Suzuki had started the last two games with Tyler Flowers (hamstring) unable to catch due to injury, but he'll concede backstop duties to No. 3 option Anthony Recker on Wednesday. With knuckleballer R.A. Dickey on the mound Thursday, Suzuki, Dickey's personal catcher, should be in store for another start in the series finale, but it's expected that Flowers will be back behind the plate at some point over the weekend. Once that materializes, Suzuki probably won't be in line for regular at-bats.

Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Struggles catching knuckler Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki went 0-for-1 with two walks and an RBI during Saturday's start against the Pirates, but also committed three passed balls trying to catch R.A. Dickey's knuckleball.

The battery was paired together often during the spring in an effort to acclimate Suzuki to the pitch, but apparently he's got a lot of work to do yet. If he ends up losing his spot as Dickey's regular catcher, it would put a big dent in Suzuki's playing time and fantasy value.

Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Batting eighth Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is in the Braves' Friday lineup batting eighth, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The backstop continues to make Atlanta's positional picture a frustrating time share. The more promising Tyler Flowers sits again. It'll be interesting to see which pitchers Atlanta wants to pair with Suzuki -- perhaps Friday starter Mike Foltynewicz included -- which could develop a pattern of his usage moving forward.

Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Two more hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

The 33-year-old is now hitting .429/.455/.762 through 21 spring at-bats, with five of his nine hits going for extra bases, while Tyler Flowers is muddling along with a .150/.261/.150 line. There's been no indication yet from Braves manager Brian Snitker that Flowers' starting job is in jeopardy, but if Suzuki keeps raking to close out the spring, he could find himself getting a lot more playing time than expected in April.

Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Hits first spring homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

The blast was his first of the spring, and Suzuki is now hitting .389/.421/.722 through 18 at-bats. With Tyler Flowers only hitting .176/.300/.176 through his first 17 at-bats of the spring, the Braves may find themselves with some tough decisions to make behind the plate by the time Opening Day rolls around.
