Braves exercised C Tyler Flowers' $4 million club option for 2018.
It's not a big surprise after Flowers batted .281/.378/.445 with 12 homers and 49 RBI over 99 games this season. The 31-year-old underwent arthroscopic debridement surgery on his left wrist earlier this month, but he's expected to be ready for spring training. The Braves have a surprisingly potent catcher combo with Kurt Suzuki coming off a 19-homer campaign. Mon, Oct 23, 2017 01:03:00 PM

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Monday that Tyler Flowers (wrist) is ahead of schedule and will return "sooner rather than later."

Tyler Flowers is headed back to Atlanta to have his wrist examined by the Braves' medical staff.

Kurt Suzuki and David Freitas will share time behind the plate for the Braves.
