It was reported yesterday that the Mets could have interest if Flowers was non-tendered before tonight’s 11:59 p.m. ET deadline, but the White Sox have rendered that possibility moot. The 27-year-old stumbled in his chance at the starting catcher job this year, hitting just 195 with 10 homers and a 94/14 K/BB ratio over 275 plate appearances. He lost playing time to Josh Phegley after the All-Star break and required season-ending surgery on his right shoulder in September. The expectation is that he’ll be fine for spring training, though he’ll likely have to accept a diminished role moving forward.
Flowers was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter as a Super Two player. He remains under team control though 2017.
