Flowers exited Saturday's game with a left hand strain.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old catcher came out of the game in the second inning Saturday and was replaced by A.J. Pierzynski. The extent of Flowers' injury is unknown at this point, but the initial diagnosis of a strain rather than a break is encouraging news nonetheless. If the Braves give Flowers the day off Sunday to get extra rest before the All-Star break, Pierzynski will draw in behind the plate in all likelihood.
