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. Sep 22 - 9:50 PM

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.
Sep 9 - 12:04 AM

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.
Sep 3 - 12:55 AM

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.
Aug 10 - 10:40 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 12:38 AM

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.
Jul 10 - 7:37 PM

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.
Jun 4 - 1:27 AM

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.
May 26 - 3:44 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.
Apr 30 - 5:29 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.
Apr 24 - 4:54 PM

Tyler Flowers went 3-for-4 with three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Flowers has quietly been an offensive revelation for the White Sox in the early going, batting .389/.421/.463 through the first three weeks. If he starts to hit for more power -- he's got 23 career home runs in 579 at-bats, so it's likely that he will -- while maintaining a decent batting average the White Sox could have something in the 28-year-old.
Apr 20 - 7:43 PM

Tyler Flowers had a nice day at the dish in Friday's loss to the Royals, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

It's a minuscule sample size, but Flowers is hitting a tidy .571/.571/.643 thus far, and is getting regular at-bats behind the dish for the White Sox. That's enough to make him intriguing in deeper two-catcher formats.
Apr 4 - 7:54 PM

Tyler Flowers went 4-for-4 before being removed for a pinch-hitter Thursday against the Twins.

Yes, the White Sox pulled the guy who was 4-for-4, replacing him with fellow right-handed hitter Paul Konerko, who grounded out against Glen Perkins to end the game. Apparently, Flowers' career .200 average outweighed his big day in Robin Ventura's mind. It was Flowers' first four-hit game as a major leaguer. He had three hits just twice in 194 games going in.
Apr 3 - 6:08 PM

Tyler Flowers was forced to leave Friday's Cactus League contest against the Cubs due to leg cramps.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura doesn't believe the issue will linger, and Flowers should return back to the lineup in a day or two. He's the unquestioned starter behind the dish for the White Sox this season with Josh Phegley optioned to Triple-A, and offers decent power potential in the final rounds of two-catcher mixed leagues
Mar 21 - 6:53 PM

Tyler Flowers left Friday's game against the Cubs with an apparent injury.

Flowers tweaked something on a swing and left in the middle of an at-bat. It looked like a possible oblique strain, but we'll have to wait for official word from the White Sox. Josh Phegley has already been sent to minor league camp, but he could be brought back if Flowers isn't ready for Opening Day. The Pale Hose could also go with a Hector Gimenez/Adrian Nieto combo or perhaps rekindle trade talks with the Yankees for Francisco Cervelli.
