Flowers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins. Flowers enjoyed a productive year at the plate this season, slashing .282/.379/.446 in 369 plate appearances, but he'll give way to Kurt Suzuki behind the plate for the season finale.
Flowers is out of the lineup against Miami on Friday. Flowers will spend Friday's contest on the bench after going 0-for-2 with a pair of walks during Thursday's game. Kurt Suzuki is set to handle the catching duties in his stead.
Flowers is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Mets. He has been playing roughly every other day over the past week. Kurt Suzuki will start behind the dish and hit cleanup.
Flowers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies. Flowers went 2-for-4 at the plate during Saturday's win, but he'll be given the day off in favor of Kurt Suzuki, who has slugged three home runs in his past two starts.
The Braves are "strongly leaning" toward picking up Flowers' 2018 option, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. They're expected to keep their backstop duo together for another season, having already inked a one-year pact with Kurt Suzuki. Flowers' 2018 club option is worth $4 million, and he's an unrestricted free agent after next season. Despite an up-and-down fantasy performance, he's posted a solid .283/.377/.444 line with 11 homers in 345 plate appearances heading into Saturday action and should continue to provide value in his age-32 season both in reality and many two-catcher fantasy leagues.
