Flowers is out of the lineup Thursday against the Royals.

Manager Robin Ventura has been managing Flowers' workload fairly carefully in September, often having him alternate starts with Josh Phegley. That will again be the case Thursday, with Phegley stepping in to catch for starting pitcher Jose Quintana.

Flowers is out of the lineup Friday against the Rays.

Flowers was just afforded a rest with the team off Thursday, but he'll sit again Friday as Josh Phegley takes over behind the plate. While Flowers has compiled a healthy .323/.364/.774 batting line so far this month, it seems the playing time will continue to be split fairly evenly between him and Phagely, with Adrian Nieto possibly seeing some starts as well.

Flowers is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Josh Phegley will step in behind the plate Tuesday, as Flowers sits for the third time in four games. Flowers is batting .286 with four homers so far this month (28 at-bats) and remains the primary option for Chicago, though manager Robin Ventura seems to want to get a better look at both Phegley and Adrian Nieto with the remaining time.

Flowers hit a walk-off home run in the 12th inning Monday, his second of the game, to beat the Athletics on a 3-for-4 night with a walk, two runs and two RBI.

Flowers was the hero after hitting a game-tying solo shot in the ninth before winning it in extra innings. It was the 28-year-old's second multi-homer game in four games, giving him 14 on the year to go with a .247/.304/.402 line.

Flowers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports.

Flowers will take the day game off Sunday in favor of Andre Nieto behind the plate. He is currently riding a seven-game hitting streak, but will need to wait until at least Monday for a chance to extend it to eight.

Flowers is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

It sounds like little more than a day off for Flowers, who will be rested after a two-homer, four-RBI game on Tuesday. The recently-recalled Josh Phegley will serve as the catcher for left-hander John Danks.

Flowers went 2-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI Tuesday against the Twins.

It was his first career multi-homer game, and he now has three homers in his last three starts. However, he came in with just 10 home runs on the season and a .363 slugging percentage, so don't expect plus-power to be a theme going forward.

Flowers went 1-for-4 with his 10th home run of the season in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

It took him close to 30 more games to do so, but Flowers has finally matched him home run output from a season ago. Four of his 10 homers have come in August, but Flowers is still batting just .194/.270/.373 for the month. Adrian Nieto spelled him behind the plate for Game 2.

Flowers is out of the lineup Saturday against the Yankees.

Flowers, who is just 2-for-25 over his last eight games, will once again yield catching duties to Adrian Nieto. While Flowers still seems like the slight favorite for playing time, the team may have seen enough to rule out bringing him back next season, and if so they may be inclined to give the 24-year-old Nieto a larger share of the starts.
