Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Flowers delivered an RBI single in the fourth inning to give the White Sox a three-run lead. It was Flowers' fourth RBI on the young season. The 29-year-old is hitting .313/.313/.563 after a career year in 2014.
Apr 14 - 10:30 PM

Tyler Flowers hit a three-run home run, his only success in three at-bats, as the White Sox fell to the Royals on Wednesday.

Flowers put the White Sox on top 3-1 with a second-inning blast off of Danny Duffy, but it wasn't enough in a high-offense game, as both teams combined for 24 hits. If his career numbers spanning 1,039 plate appearances are any indication, Flowers will hit for occasional power but post a low batting average and strike out frequently.
Apr 8 - 11:27 PM

Tyler Flowers had a single and a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Indians.

The longball came in the third inning off of Trevor Bauer. It was Flowers' third tater this spring, although he's hitting just .233. In other words, he's being Tyler Flowers.
Mar 30 - 8:08 PM

White Sox and C Tyler Flowers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.675 million contract.

Flowers was eligible for arbitration for a second time this winter. He belted 15 homers last season and is currently in line to be the White Sox' Opening Day catcher.
Jan 16 - 2:29 PM

Tyler Flowers homered to score the White Sox's two runs in Monday's victory.

Flowers is up to 15 homers and 50 RBI, and the late surge will almost certainly see him welcomed back as the White Sox's starting catcher next year, even if he does have the highest strikeout rate of anyone with 400 plate appearances this season.

Tyler Flowers homered in the ninth and 12th innings to propel the White Sox past the A's 5-4 on Monday.

Flowers' game-tying homer came with two out and two strikes in the ninth. He won it by getting ahold of a hanging curve from Jesse Chavez in the 12th. Flowers also singled in the contest, leaving him 7-for-15 with four homers this month. He was as bad of a hitter as there was in baseball during May and June, but he's been doing a really nice job with a .306 average and nine homers since the All-Star break.

Tyler Flowers hit two home runs and had four RBI as the White Sox topped the Twins 6-3 on Tuesday.

Flowers took Twins starter Tommy Milone deep in the second inning for a two-run homer, and his two-run shot in the 10th padded the White Sox lead. Flowers now has 12 home runs and 45 RBI on the year, both career highs for the 28-year-old.

Tyler Flowers hit his ninth home run in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Flowers needs one more homer to match his career high, which he set last season. The catcher is hitting .250/.308/.380 with 40 RBI on the year.

Tyler Flowers went 3-for-3 with a homer and a triple Monday against the Rangers.

The triple just missed being a homer. Flowers is tearing it up at the plate since getting glasses, going 20-for-44 with three homers and 13 RBI in 14 games in the second half. The White Sox were expected to give Adrien Nieto more time behind the dish down the stretch, but those plans are on hold for as long as Flowers is hitting.

Tyler Flowers is 1-for-25 in July after going hitless in four at-bats Thursday.

The White Sox will certainly be on the looking for a possible catcher of the future if they do any selling this month. Since his incredible April in which he hit .367 (that'd be like a decent hitter batting .600), he's gone 24-for-168 (.149) with 71 strikeouts.

Tyler Flowers banged out a solo homer in Tuesday's 4-1 win against the Dodgers.

It was his only hit of the game. He'd gone 1-for-19 in his last six games, slashing his average from .312 to .281. Coming off batting averages of .209, .213, and .195 over the past three years, and sporting a high BABIP, it was only a matter of time before Flower's batting average plummeted back to earth. That process has started, so owners will have to hope that his power comes along, allowing him to finish safely over last season's career-high homer output of 10 (he has two over his past three games and five total). Flowers is slashing .282/.339/.405 and is on pace for 14 homers and 46 RBI.

Tyler Flowers got ejected from Monday's game against the Indians for arguing a called third strike.

It was a bit low and inside. Flowers reacted by throwing his bat and was quickly shown the door by home plate umpire Ron Kulpa. He went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts.
Mon, May 26, 2014 03:44:00 PM

Tyler Flowers hit an RBI single in the ninth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

It was the only run the White Sox managed all afternoon against Detroit. Flowers is batting .354/.398/.415 with nine RBI in 25 games played this season for Chicago.
Wed, Apr 30, 2014 05:29:00 PM

Tyler Flowers had his fourth three-hit game of the season Thursday in the loss to the Tigers.

Yeah, that Tyler Flowers. Only Juan Uribe with five has more three-hit games this season (six others also have four). Going into this season, Flowers had played in 192 major league games and had three hits exactly twice. Flowers has still struck out 24 times in 64 at-bats, so we're not big believers in his newfound ability to hit for average.
