Flowers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

While the veteran catcher has only six homers on the year he's enjoying a bit of a power surge at the moment, going yard in three of his last six starts. Flowers' current .325/.427/.478 slash line is even better than the .299/.378/.411 line he managed after the All-Star break last season, and with Kurt Suzuki around to give him regular rest, don't assume Flowers is doomed to wilt over the summer.
