White Sox C Tyler Flowers on Thursday's melee: It could help us bond


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) While White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers said he would rather avoid the type of incident which occurred during Thursday's loss to the Royals, he said there can be some positive things that come out of the confrontation, reports MLB.com.

"It can definitely be a bonding thing," Flowers said. "As a team right there, protecting each other, watching your back, those kind of things. You don't want to see those kinds of things happen a lot, but when they do, you count on the guys around you to make sure nothing bad happens."

The incident occurred when Adam Eaton hit a come-backer to pitcher Yordano Ventura and Ventura began yelling at Eaton. Eaton agreed that the benches-clearing incident can help team unity.

"There are a lot of feisty guys in here, too, which I like," Eaton said. "A lot of guys like me. I respect our guys, too. You come out there on my behalf, it's awesome. It shows the team camaraderie."

White Sox C Tyler Flowers hits first spring home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers hit his first home run of the spring Tuesday, going 1 for 3 at the plate in his team's loss to the Rockies, and despite delivering mediocre numbers in Cactus League play, the catcher feels he's been taking "steps in the right direction," per MLB.com.

"As we see every year, a lot of times, spring training doesn't matter," Flowers said. "Guys are terrible in spring training and then have a great year, and guys are great in Spring Training and have a terrible year. Now, it's just more about trusting yourself, so you have time to recognize a pitch and still get to it. That's kind of the battle and the battle for most people all the time. It's been steps in the right direction: putting balls in play, feeling comfortable and confident in there, laying off pitches, swinging at strikes, taking balls kind of thing. So, just the progression of that. It's more just trying to get comfortable and get a little tempo and rhythm going. I feel like I'm making strides at that."

Flowers is 4 for 30 with one double, one home run and three walks in 12 Cactus League games.


White Sox C Tyler Flowers: 'It's my job to lose' behind the plate


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers told reporters he doesn't plan on giving up his starting job easily, per MLB.com. On Thursday, Geovany Soto signed a minor-league deal with an invite to spring training.

"I really don't think there's much of a question going in there," Flowers said. "I would definitely say it's my job to lose. Barring an injury, there's really no doubt I'll be the guy catching opening day."

Flowers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal, worth $2.675 million for this season. The 28-year-old hit .241/.297/.396 with 15 homers and 50 RBI over 407 at-bats in 2014.

"At this point, there's no reason to move off of that," general manager Rick Hahn said. "Competition is good. It brings out the best in people. And if someone comes in and fights for that job and earns it, I'm sure we'll be flexible. But certainly, we view Tyler as the starter."

Tyler Flowers credits turnaround to hard work, not goggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers has been on an offensive tear the last few weeks, batting .458 with one triple, three home runs, six doubles and 13 RBI in his last 15 games.

His hot streak began around the time he started wearing sport goggles, but Flowers said that's not the reason for his success.

"I’m just trying to keep working," Flowers said. "I started doing a couple things a little bit different that I hadn’t really done before and I looked at other good hitters around the league and they all seem to do it. 

"I’m trying to be downhill a little more. I’m trying to make a positive move toward the pitcher with the stride. I have a tendency to kind of want to stay back and that tends to make me collapse a little bit more on the back side.  When it’s there it’s pretty good and when it’s not, it’s not very good. It’s still something I’m working on and the majority of good hitters out there do that and I realized I hadn’t been doing for a while now. I’m still trying to get comfortable with it."
