Flowers will miss this weekend's series with the Mets due to a bruised left hand injury, Mark Bowman of reports.

The catcher sustained the setback during his final at-bat of Wednesday's game against the Nationals. He was held out Thursday, and is expected to return to the field after missing the three weekend contests versus New York. David Freitas is behind the plate for Friday's series opener while Kurt Suzuki is in line to see a majority of the starts in case Flowers misses a little more time.
