Flowers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

An 0-for-4, two-strikeout performance dropped Flowers' season average to .214 and his on-base percentage to .257, which could allow Geovany Soto to cut further into his at-bats. Soto's own offensive struggles have prevented either catcher from creating much separation in the job battle.

Flowers is likely still bothered by the illness that kept him out of Sunday's game, as it would otherwise be unusual for Geovany Soto to get three consecutive starts behind the plate. Adam LaRoche and Adam Eaton also felt ill Sunday, but both are in Tuesday's lineup.
