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.

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.

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.
