Tyler Flowers finished 2-for-4 in Saturday's game at San Francisco.
Flowers, a career .238 hitter, has collected two hits in back-to-back games and four of his past five outings. He is cruising along with a slash line of .357/.453/.462. The backstop has never really come close to this type of production before, so fantasy owners would be wise to consider him as a sell-high candidate. May 28 - 3:18 AM

Tyler Flowers finished 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 2-0 win in San Francisco.

Flowers is humming along with a slash line of .351/.465/.447. He is a career .238 hitter so this type of sustained production after nearly two full months is quite the surprise. He continues to split the receiver duties with fellow veteran Kurt Suzuki, so he is still useful only as a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only play.

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run against the Nationals on Saturday.

The dinger came off reliever Matt Albers in the eighth inning to pad the Braves' lead to three runs. The 31-year-old Flowers has a .237 career batting average in 543 games but has upped his game this year. He is now batting .349/.465/.458 with two homers and 14 RBI in 101 at-bats. He splits the Braves' catching duties with veteran Kurt Suzuki.

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in Friday’s victory over the Marlins.

Flowers slugged a two-run homer in the second inning — his first homer of the season — before adding a two-run single in a six-run seventh. The 31-year-old has proven to be a nice surprise in two-catcher formats, batting .361/.481/.446 through 25 games. While it’s a small sample, he’s making contact more often this season while showing more patience.
May 12 - 10:47 PM

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-3 and scored a run in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

He also worked a walk in the contest. The two hits boosted his batting average up to .396 in 53 at-bats while splitting duty behind the plate with Kurt Suzuki. He has yet to homer and has driven in nine runs. Despite the hot start he is unlikely to have much value in mixed leagues.
May 4 - 12:24 AM

Tyler Flowers finished 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's lopsided win over the Brewers.

All four of Flowers' hits in the game were singles. If there is a knock on a guy hitting .391 with a .916 OPS, it's that the 31-year-old still has yet to homer. Even so, Flowers is on fire right now and hits in the latter third of what's proving to be a pretty good lineup. He's worth a look in deeper two-catcher leagues.
Apr 29 - 11:47 PM

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 and drove in four runs to lead his team to victory over the Mets on Wednesday.

He broke the game open in the first inning by lacing a based-loaded double to right field to plate three runs and give his team a 5-0 lead before the Mets even came to bat. He drove in another run with a single to left in the fifth inning. Flowers has been productive with the bat while splitting time at catcher with Kurt Suzuki in Atlanta. He owns a .342 batting average with zero homers and eight RBI in 45 plate appearances.
Apr 26 - 10:54 PM

Tyler Flowers (hamstring) is expected to remain out of the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fowlers drew a walk as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Nationals, but Johan Camargo promptly replaced him on the bases. Flowers is still working through some right hamstring discomfort, though he could be ready to return to the catcher position Thursday.
Apr 18 - 11:46 PM

Tyler Flowers (hamstring) reported improvement Monday and the hope is he can return to the lineup in a few days.

Flowers strained his right hamstring Sunday, but he'll try to avoid a trip to the disabled list. The Braves will use Kurt Suzuki at catcher for the next few games.
Apr 17 - 4:30 PM

Tyler Flowers (hamstring) is absent from Monday's lineup against the Padres.

Flowers left Sunday's game with a strained right hamstring and could be headed to the disabled list. Kurt Suzuki will fill in behind the plate.
Apr 17 - 3:04 PM

Tyler Flowers is listed as day-to-day after leaving Sunday's game against the Padres with a strained right hamstring.

Flowers will be re-evaluated on Monday, but it sounds like he may miss a couple of games. Expect to see Kurt Suzuki behind the dish for the Braves on Monday.

Tyler Flowers was pulled from Sunday's game against the Padres with an apparent leg injury.

Flowers appeared to tweak something while retreating back to second base on Jace Peterson's flyout in the bottom of the seventh. Flowers was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI before getting replaced by Anthony Recker.
Apr 16 - 3:37 PM

Tyler Flowers is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Flowers and Kurt Suzuki have each garnered a pair of starts in the early going, which is obviously not encouraging for Flowers' fantasy owners. The rest of the Braves' lineup is filled with regulars.
Apr 7 - 11:00 AM

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer of the spring Tuesday against the Nationals.

Flowers had half of the Braves' hits on the day, and his homer came off annual Grapefruit League Cy Young candidate Gio Gonzalez (it was the second run he's allowed in 16 1/3 innings this spring). That'll do something for Flowers' confidence; he had been 3-for-23 with no extra-base hits.
Mar 21 - 4:08 PM

Tyler Flowers went 0-for-3 on Thursday, lowering his spring average to .150.

Kurt Suzuki has been hot this spring, so Flowers might need to get it going soon. It's clear to us that Flowers should be the Braves' starting catcher -- he's a far superior framer and a better hitter than he used to be -- but we can't be sure Brian Snitker sees it the same way.
