      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: On bench Wednesday

      Kurt Suzuki is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.Suzuki has taken advantage of the extra playing time provided by Tyler Flowers' oblique injury, hitting .327/.409/.600 with four homers in 18 games and striking out just three times. Flowers has begun his rehab assignment, though, so Suzuki is likely to lose out on some playing time soon. Carlos Perez gets the start behind the dish Wednesday.

      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Records three hits Tuesday

      Kurt Suzuki went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Reds.Suzuki hit his fourth home run of the season and recorded three hits for the second time in his past four starts. He has performed well with full-time at-bats in the absence of Tyler Flowers (oblique), hitting .327/.409/.600. However, Flowers could return to the lineup on the last weekend of April, meaning Suzuki's at-bats will likely become more sporadic shortly.

      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Has big day at plate against Mets

      Kurt Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a pair of doubles, three RBI and three runs, helping the Atlanta Braves to a 12-4 triumph over the Mets on Thursday.The explosive effort brought Suzuki's slash line up to .317/.420/.610 over 41 at-bats and he's been getting the lion's share of the work at catcher with Tyler Flowers out of action with an oblique injury. His hot bat makes him usable for fantasy purposes for the time being, but Flowers' eventual return figures to put a dent in his workload whenever it takes place.

      Braves' Kurt Suzuki: Blasts two homers Wednesday

      Kurt Suzuki went 3-for-6 with a single and a pair of solo homers in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.Both of Suzuki's homers gave the Atlanta Braves a one-run advantage -- in the fourth inning and the 11th -- but the team wasn't able to hang onto either lead. The backstop had just three hits on the year prior to Wednesday's three-hit showing, and he's now hitting a respectable .273/.385/.545 through eight games. Suzuki should continue to see the bulk of playing time at backstop until Tyler Flowers (oblique) is healthy.

Chris Stewart and Carlos Perez should continue to split catching duties until then.
