MLB | Tyler Flowers inks deal with Braves

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 16:21:49 -0800

Free-agent C Tyler Flowers (White Sox) has signed a two-year, $5.3 million contract with the Atlanta Braves, featuring $1.5 million of annual incentives as well.

Fantasy Tip: So much for Christian Bethancourt being Atlanta's catcher of the future. That can still happen, but as far as 2016 goes, the Braves appear to have a logjam at catcher, with Flowers joining fellow veteran A.J. Pierzynski behind the dish. Flowers has exhibited some power potential before, slugging a career-high 15 home runs in 2014, but has always had issues with hitting for average. The catching situation in Atlanta looks like one to avoid in fantasy come draft day unless you're in a league that starts two catchers.

MLB | Tyler Flowers down to three clubs

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 10:24:55 -0800

Free-agent C Tyler Flowers (White Sox) is deciding between the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Wherever Flowers lands, he'll be splitting catching duties, at best. He has some power in his bat but makes inconsistent contact. He'll be a second catcher in two-catcher leagues.

White Sox | ChiSox looking for catching help

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 18:12:16 -0800

Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said the team is expected to add another catcher via free agency or trade within the next few days to replace C Tyler Flowers, who was not tendered a contract Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hahn characterized the club's catching competition as wide-open, with recently-signed backstop Alex Avila having an opportunity to seize the No. 1 job. He hit .191 with four home runs and 13 RBIs in 67 games last season and is not a great option in any fantasy format. Flowers is now a free agent and is unlikely to experience difficulty finding a new club, given the lack of catching depth around the majors. He hit .239 with nine home runs and 39 RBIs in 112 games in 2015.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche, Tyler Flowers out

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:31:59 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche and C Tyler Flowers are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto, while C Geovany Soto is doing the catching and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie Thompson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has intriguing upside but is batting only .214 (15-for-70) with three home runs and nine RBI in September. He's a sleeper pick this evening against Cueto if you're feeling lucky. Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .222 (41-for-185) on the year and is even more of a gamble in daily leagues.

White Sox | Four Regulars out for White Sox

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:28:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez, OF Avisail Garcia, 1B Adam LaRoche and C Tyler Flowers are not in the starting lineup against the New York Yankees Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) draws into the lineup and is batting fifth against New York SP Luis Severino ($7,600, 15.2% of cap), and Shuck could be an off-the-radar outfield option at FantasyScore Sunday. Rob Brantly ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Tyler Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are nothing more than desperation fliers Sunday.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers on the bench

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 09:16:00 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. C Geovany Soto is starting and hitting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a backup catcher to avoid on FantasyScore on a day with a full slate of games. Soto is also facing a pitcher in Verlander that has really looked good of late now that he is fully healthy.

White Sox | Group of ChiSox regulars out for Game 2

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 14:02:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton, SS Alexei Ramirez, OF Melky Cabrera and C Tyler Flowers are all out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers Monday, Sept. 21. 3B Tyler Saladino is starting at the 6 and hitting second, OF Trayce Thompson is starting in left field and batting cleanup, C Rob Brantly is catching and hitting eighth, and OF Leury Garcia is in center field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf.

Fantasy Tip: Against the hittable Randy Wolf tonight, several White Sox players are worth stacking on FantasyScore, but only Thompson ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should really excite you of this bunch as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore. Hitting cleanup certainly gives him a better chance to drive in runs, too.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers resting for Game 1

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 09:09:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers Monday, Sept. 21. C Geovany Soto is behind the plate and is batting seventh against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a very mediocre option as a backup catcher on FantasyScore if you're looking for a little salary cap relief on a day with fewer games. He's batting just .230 (41-for-178) on the year but does have nine home runs and 21 RBI.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers resting again

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:41:18 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers has the day off again Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Rob Brantly is catching and batting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Cody Martin.

Fantasy Tip: On a day with all games in play, it makes no sense whatsoever to go with Brantly ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) as your starting catcher on FantasyScore, even if you're looking for salary cap relief.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers receiving a breather

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 14:58:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. C Geovany Soto is catching and is hitting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could be a sneaky pick at catcher if you're looking to save some money in daily formats. However, his daily upside is limited while hitting ninth.
