|Tyler Flowers out of lineup Tuesday for personal reasons |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/22/14) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Royals, though it isn't because he is hurt.
Flowers' wife gave birth Monday, according to ESPN.com, so he was spending the day with her. He is expected to be at the ballpark in time for the game, and will likely be available off the bench.
|Tyler Flowers wearing glasses Wednesday |

(7/9/14) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers wore glasses during Wednesday's game, according to MLB.com.
Flowers is in the middle of a major slump, and may have resorted to glasses as a possible solution. Flowers is hitting .219/.278/.302 over 242 at-bats.

(7/7/14) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers is batting .096/.157/.160 in 29 games since May 26, notes WEEI.com. He hasn't had a multihit game since May 23 and has 10 extra-base hits all year.
Flowers' ongoing slump followed a productive April in which he hit .354.
|Tyler Flowers absent from Thursday lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(6/26/14) Scuffling White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers is not in the Thursday lineup against the Twins. Adrian Nieto is set to start instead.
Flowers has one hit in each of his last three games, but a 4-for-49 slide has lowered a batting average that was .330 in early May to a season-low .241.
|Tyler Flowers smacks fifth home run Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/4/14) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 4-1 win over the Dodgers Tuesday.
Flowers delivered his home run in the fourth inning, and it would turn out to be the last run of the game. He has clubbed home runs in two of the last days and owns a .282/.339/.405 line with five home runs and 17 RBI in 163 at-bats.
|With the departure of long-time catcher A.J. Pierzynski to free agency, Tyler Flowers started off the 2013 season as the White Sox's regular behind the plate. Batting .213 through the end of June, Flowers lost his job in midseason, relegated to backing up rookie Josh Phegley. Fortunately for Flowers, Phegley had enough of his own struggles to bring Flowers back into the picture heading into 2014. Even if Flowers regains the starting role, he has limited appeal, even in AL-only leagues. Due to frequent strikeouts, Flowers may have a difficult time rising above his career .200 batting average, so his upside may be no greater than that of J.P. Arencibia.
