Flowers provided all of the White Sox offense Friday as he finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the Rangers.

The 29-year-old has been losing more and more playing time to Geovanni Soto of late, as he had sat out the previous three games heading into Friday. Flowers is still batting a meager .210 with four home runs on the season and will need more of these types of performances to earn a larger share of the starts.

Flowers is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Flowers is still getting most of the playing time behind the plate, but Geovany Soto receives more at-bats than your average backup. Both have struggled in the batter's box this season, showing little hope of improvement in the process.

Flowers is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

This is another of Flowers' semi-frequent days off, as another start for Geovany Soto will mean the veteran has started four of the last seven games for Chicago. Soto holds a decent OPS edge (.659 to .565) which could partially explain the ratio of starts.

Flowers is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Flowers will sit in favor of Geovany Soto after starting two straight, as manager Robin Ventura continues to split the workload behind the plate fairly evenly. Since hitting a homer in his first game of June, Flowers has gone 1-for-13 with six strikeouts.

Flowers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, ESPN Chicago's Doug Padilla reports.

Manager Robin Ventura will keep Flowers on the bench for a second straight game in what continues to remain a fluid situation at catcher. Neither Flowers or Geovany Soto have generated much momentum at the dish, as both are batting just a shade over .200 for the season. The situation is probably worth avoiding entirely outside of AL-only or deep two-catcher formats.

Flowers is out of the lineup Saturday, the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan reports.

After catching the last three games, Flowers gets the day off Saturday and Geovany Soto gets the start behind the plate. Flowers, as one could have predicted, has straddled the Mendoza Line all season, and his average currently sits at .203, which is just south of his .216 career average.
