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.

Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Smacks three doubles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki went 3-for-3 with three doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

He's hitting .375 (6-for-16) this spring, and while the 33-year-old Suzuki offers limited offensive upside -- he last hit double-digit homers in 2011, and has hit above .260 only once in the five years since then -- he could see a surprising amount of playing time in 2017 if Tyler Flowers regresses. In NL-only formats that require two catchers, Suzuki could have more value than comparable endgame options.

Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Set to sign with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki is expected to sign with the Braves.

The terms of the deal are unknown at this point, but Suzuki will now join a backstop rotation that already features Tyler Flowers and Anthony Recker. Flowers and Suzuki are expected to serve as the top two options, with Recker in line for spot starts as the No. 3 catcher. The 33-year-old Suzuki slashed .258/.301/.403 with eight home runs in 106 games for the Twins in 2016.

Twins' Kurt Suzuki: Likely to sit last two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suzuki isn't expected to start in either of Minnesota's final two games, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Suzuki is banged up after taking many foul balls off his body the past few weeks. He's unlikely to return to the Twins in the offseason as he completes the final year of a two-year contract.
