Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers (shoulder) has resumed throwing after having surgery on his labrum and rotator cuff. Flowers thinks he'll be 100 percent healthy in mid-January. "I'm feeling pretty good," Flowers said. "I'm excited. I'm happy to still be with the White Sox. It's always nice to return to where you're comfortable with the coaches and you like playing. Now it's back to work, but be a whole lot better than I was." He admitted to not having an open mind about his approach at the plate last year, and he thinks he and hitting coach Todd Steverson will focus more on his approach in 2014.

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers views his loss of playing time to C Josh Phegley as an opportunity to work on his game. He noted that he hasn't felt good offensively this season.
Fantasy Tip: That feeling was evident in his results. It's a nice attitude, but Flowers will need some things in his favor to get some PT back, so only those in AL-only leagues should even have him on their radars.

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers was in a 1-for-28 slump entering Wednesday, April 17, and decided to make a change to his stance after working with manager Robin Ventura. "I'll have a little open stance, stand a little taller, and it feels great," the catcher said. "We'll have to see if it reacts and everything is the same in a game. It's one reaction from one set of BP and flips. You get in game, the adrenaline and situation might change a bit." He has 16 strikeouts in 37 at-bats to start the year.
Fantasy Tip: Flowers has been known to strike out way too much, but the White Sox and fantasy owners have to be intrigued with the pop that he delivers. The stance change made an immediate impact, as Flowers homered in his first at-bat Wednesday. He'll need to show improvement against righties, too, before he can be considered anything more than a No. 2 catcher, though.
