Flowers went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a win over San Francisco on Thursday. Flowers hit a 405-foot blast off Madison Bumgarner in the fifth inning to temporarily tie the score. The backstop continues to split time with Brian McCann; both have been effective this season, with Flowers owning the edge in homers, 5-3. His other counting stats have been minimal, however, as he has only two additional extra-base hits and has driven in only nine runs on the season.
Flowers went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 12-8 win over the Brewers. The catcher's sixth-inning blast off Corbin Burnes was one of three in the frame and four on the game for Atlanta hitters. Flowers is now slashing .293/.356/.488 on the year with four homers in 25 games, but he's had trouble turning those hits into fantasy production -- he has only eight runs and eight RBI.
Flowers went 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBI against Arizona on Sunday. Flowers knocked home a run in the third inning on a single to right field, and he tacked on a big insurance tally in the eighth on a triple. The 33-year-old backstop is slashing .276/.329/.447 with three homers and six RBI through 23 games in 2019.
Flowers will start behind the plate and bat seventh Thursday against the Padres. The Braves have been running a fairly even timeshare between Flowers and McCann since the latter returned from the injured list April 17. McCann has drawn eight starts behind the plate over that span, while Flowers will pick up his seventh in the series finale. The arrangement serves to limit the fantasy value of both players but should prove helpful in preserving the tandem's health over a 162-game schedule.
Flowers went 4-for-4 with two solo home runs Friday against the Rockies. Flowers accounted for half of Atlanta's offense in an 8-4 loss. He left the yard in the sixth and ninth innings, boosting his home-run total to three on the season. The 33-year-old backstop is hitting .378 with four extra-base hits and four RBI over 13 contests in 2019.
