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.
Apr 16 - 8:17 PM

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.
Mar 16 - 4:19 PM

Tyler Flowers is not in the Braves starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against the Nationals.

Nothing more than a regular day of rest for the hot-hitting backstop. Anthony Recker, who rejoined the team on Friday, will work behind the dish and bat sixth for the Braves against Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals.

Tyler Flowers reached base four times and drove in four runs in Monday's shootout win over the Marlins.

It doesn't happen very often that you drive in four runs without the benefit of an extra-base hit, but that's what happened with Flowers Monday with the catcher delivering a pair of two-RBI singles. He also drew two walks. Flower has had an underrated season in Atlanta with a .271/.370/.424 batting line and seven homers. He'll get more playing time down the stretch with A.J. Pierzynski out of commission.

Tyler Flowers is getting a day off on Saturday against the Mets.

It'll be veteran backstop A.J. Pierzynski starting behind the dish for the Braves against Bartolo Colon and the Mets. Flowers should find himself back in there for Sunday's series finale.

Braves activated C Tyler Flowers from the 15-day disabled list.

Flowers missed a full month because of a fracture in his left hand. The 30-year-old catcher will return Wednesday to a respectable .253/.343/.425 batting line.

Tyler Flowers (hand) could be activated from the disabled list next Thursday.

Working his way back from a fractured left hand, Flowers began a rehab assignment on Thursday. He's been out since just before the All-Star break.

Tyler Flowers (hand) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

And it's likely to be a short one because he's been able to continue hitting and catching while the small fracture in his left hand heals. Flowers landed on the disabled list just before the All-Star break with a timetable of 4-6 weeks. He'll come in on the early part of that range if all continues to go smoothly.

Tyler Flowers (hand) caught a bullpen session Friday.

Flowers is slated to taking batting practice, too. It's the first time he's done either since breaking his left hand just before the All-Star break. The catcher shouldn't be far off from a return.
