Flowers is not in the Braves' lineup Friday against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

With R.A. Dickey toeing the rubber, Kurt Suzuki will take over behind the plate and bat fifth. Flowers is putting together a nice second season with Atlanta, hitting a career-best .342 from the plate with an .882 OPS.
