Tyler Flowers went 4-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the Royals on Wednesday.

It's just the second four-hit game of Flowers' career, and it raised his average from .227 to .236. Since Flowers wasn't able to build on his improved 2014 campaign this year, the White Sox should be in the market for a catching upgrade this winter. If they get one, they could non-tender Flowers rather than keep him as a $3 million backup.

Flowers' two-run double in the seventh inning increased the White Sox lead from 3-0 to 5-0, a lead the team would not relinquish. The catcher is hitting just .235/.282/.388, though he does have a bit of pop in the bat and has slugged seven homers in 183 at-bats while splitting time behind the plate for the Pale Hose.

Tyler Flowers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

His solo blast off Colby Lewis in the fifth inning was the only offense of the game for the White Sox. There was some optimism on Flowers after a big second half last year, but it hasn't translated so far in 2015. He's hitting just .210 with four home runs and .589 OPS in 46 games.

Tyler Flowers finally hit his second homer in the loss to the Indians on Thursday.

Flowers' average would have ended the night at .198 if not for Gordon Beckham's two-out double in the ninth. Flowers followed it up with a pretty meaningless two-run homer, pushing his average up to .207. Fortunately for him, Geovany Soto is having some issues defensively and hasn't made much of a case to take over as the starter. Flowers, though, has been quite a liability thus far.
