Tyler Flowers

  1. White Sox sticking with Tyler Flowers as starting catcher

    Mar 17, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Tyler Flowers

    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said yesterday that Tyler Flowers will begin the season as the team’s starting catcher “unless something drastically changes.” Josh Phegly, Hector Gimenez, and Rule 5 pick Adrian Nieto are the other options, so it’s not as if Flowers had stiff competition for the gig, but he’s coming off a miserable…

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox - Game One

    ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the White Sox and catcher Tyler Flowers have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $950,000 contract. 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…

  4. Mets are interested in Tyler Flowers if he is non-tendered by the White Sox

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox - Game One

    The non-tender deadline is tomorrow and there is a chance that the White Sox could non-tender catcher Tyler Flowers. Flowers himself believes there’s slightly better than a 50-50 chance he stays in Chicago, per MLB.com’s Scott Merkin: “I put it at 51-49 in favor of staying because of the contractual conversation we’ve had before,” Flowers…

  5. Does McCann to New York set up a Salty, Red Sox reunion?

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia

    It’s the catcher market that has moved the most quickly in free agency this winter, with Brian McCann becoming the first elite free agent to come to terms, agreeing to a five-year, $85 million deal with the Yankees on Saturday. The other catcher deals: Carlos Ruiz – Phillies (three years, $26 million) Geovany Soto –…

  6. Tyler Flowers didn’t tell White Sox about “extreme” pain

    Sep 5, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Tyler Flowers

    As is so often the case when a player performs terribly, it turns out White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers was playing through a significant shoulder injury. Flowers is set to undergo season-ending exploratory surgery, but manager Robin Ventura told Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com that the catcher hid the severity of the injury for a long…

  7. Tyler Flowers needs shoulder surgery, out 3-6 months

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Tyler Flowers

    As if hitting .195 after being tasked with replacing A.J. Pierzynski as the White Sox’s starting catcher wasn’t enough to ruin Tyler Flowers‘ season, now he’s undergoing exploratory shoulder surgery. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Flowers is expected to miss 3-6 months, which means he may not be ready for the beginning of next…

  8. Josh Phegley is the new Yasiel Puig

    Jul 11, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Josh Phegley

    Puigmania is over. It’s old news. Could there be any better illustration than the fact that Freddie Freeman beat out Yasiel in a popularity contest this week? It’s OK, though. White Sox catcher Josh Phegley is the new big thing. He hit a grand slam Thursday in the White Sox’s 6-3 win over the Tigers,…

  9. Tyler Flowers’ struggles lead White Sox to call up Josh Phegley

    Jul 5, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Josh Phegley

    Tyler Flowers was handed the starting catcher job following A.J. Pierzynski‘s departure as a free agent, but he’s hit just .206 with 70 strikeouts in 64 games and now the White Sox are bringing in another option behind the plate. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that the White Sox are calling up Triple-A catcher Josh…

  10. Trevor Bauer turns in the worst start of the season

    Jun 28, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Not his worst start. The worst start. Trevor Bauer surrendered five runs and six hits while getting just two outs Friday in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox. He was up to 49 pitches in the first when manager Terry Francona finally had to come get him, putting the Indians in…

  11. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

  12. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jay Bruce

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

  13. Duck! Ervin Santana picked up right where he left off

    Apr 3, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    Ervin Santana served up an AL-high 39 homers in 178 innings last season on the way to posting a 5.16 ERA that convinced the Angels to dump him on the Royals. Santana made his Royals debut today and allowed three homers in six innings, as Adam Dunn, Dayan Viciedo, and Tyler Flowers all took him…

    Los Angeles Dodgers Kershaw watches solo home run in eighth inning against San Francisco Giants during MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Dodgers 4, Giants, 0: I watched part of this game with my kids after they got home from school. When they were showing the lineups, they showed Clayton Kershaw‘s career .146 average and my son asked me why it was so low compared to the other players’. I explained to him that pitchers can’t really…

  16. Dodgers in the mix for A.J. Pierzynski?

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:24 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    UPDATE: Heyman was told by Dodgers officials that it’s unlikely they’ll make a run at Pierzynski. Makes sense with Ellis in-house. As in, they’re all stocked up on A.J.’s. 10:15 PM: It seems like the deep-pocketed Dodgers have been mentioned as a potential suitor for nearly every free agent on the market. Now it’s A.J.…

  17. Don’t count on the White Sox re-signing A.J. Pierzynski

    Nov 12, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski has said he’d like to re-sign with the White Sox and new general manager Rick Hahn has said he’s open to bringing back the free agent catcher, but Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com put together five reasons why a reunion won’t be happening. Some are money/roster based, while another is the fact that Tyler…

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

  19. A.J. Pierzynski homers in fifth straight as White Sox win

    Aug 5, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski didn’t start Sunday, but it didn’t stop him from hitting his 21st homer as the White Sox beat the Angels 4-2. Pinch-hitting for Tyler Flowers, Pierzynski hit a tie-breaking two-run homer off Jason Isringhausen in the bottom of the seventh. It was his fifth straight game with a homer, matching a White Sox…

    Buster Posey

    I’ll save the fantasy projections for the Rotoworld Draft Guide, but here are my top catchers for 2012 going by OPS: .878 - Buster Posey – Giants – 486 AB – .756 in 2011 .868 – Mike Napoli – Rangers – 413 AB – 1.046 in 2011 .867 – Carlos Santana – Indians – 524 AB –…
