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.

Chicago White Sox C Hector Gimenez is expected to get a chance to prove he belongs in the major leagues, and he is currently slated to serve as the primary backup to C Tyler Flowers.
Fantasy Tip: Gimenez appears to be a fit for the 25-man roster because he is a switch-hitter, has a strong throwing arm, and can play outfield in a pinch. Despite all of that, he is only worth fantasy consideration in the deepest of AL-only leagues if he breaks camp with the team.

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers has already been working with hitting coach Jeff Manto and assistant hitting coach Harold Baines in an effort to get a jump on the season, and successfully replace C A.J. Pierzynski (Rangers). "I'm not taking anything for granted. There's no guarantee on anything. From the sound of it there might be a guarantee on Opening Day, but that's about it," Flowers said. "If I don't continue to work hard and produce and help the White Sox win, I might not have the job at the end of the year. The focus is to continue to get better."
Fantasy Tip: Flowers has a lot to prove heading into 2013, and it's a positive sign he is getting a jump on the season trying to improve. Right now, he is a Top 25 fantasy option at his position, or a low-end No. 2 catcher in mixed formats and low-end No. 1 catcher in deeper AL-only leagues.
