Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) has been diagnosed with a broken hand and will miss at least six weeks. C Anthony Recker likely will be recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett when Flowers is placed on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: A.J. Pierzynski likely will receive more starts with Flowers sidelined for multiple weeks. He is hitting only .205 with zero home runs and 18 RBI this season and is not a strong option. Owners in NL-only leagues could consider adding Recker if they need help at the position.

Fantasy Tip: More information on a potential return date for Flowers should be available during the All-Star break, but he doesn't have much value outside of NL-only leagues.

Atlanta Braves C Tyler Flowers (hand) left the game against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, July 9, in the bottom of the second inning with a strained left hand. He was replaced by C A.J. Pierzynski.
Fantasy Tip: The injury was apparently one that was developing as the game progressed, as Flowers waved off the dugout before his first at-bat and Pierzynski was prepared to take the field. More details should follow shortly, but Flowers has been a quality low-end fantasy backstop this season, batting .253 with seven homers and 21 RBI.
