Tyler Flowers leaves Thursday's game after HBP

Tyler Flowers was removed from Thursday's game against the Nationals after being hit by a pitch in the elbow.

Fantasy Impact

Atlanta is calling the exit precautionary, so it sounds as if Flowers will avoid an IL stint. We should get an update on his status sometime on Friday.

Tyler Flowers potentially will rejoin Braves

Tylers Flowers worked out in Atlanta on Tuesday and could potentially rejoin the team on Wednesday for the Home Opener per manager Brian Snitker.

Fantasy Impact

Flowers was experiencing COVID symptoms, without testing positive, but stayed in Atlanta during the team's opening road trip. He was able to get some work in on Tuesday and seems healthy enough to rejoin the club. He'll probably split time with rookie Alex Jackson once he's back. The possible return of Travis d'Arnaud could complicate things as well but he will likely play 1B and get some work at DH. There's not much fantasy appeal with any of them but d'Arnaud is the best bet if he can get steady AB's.

Tyler Flowers (COVID symptoms) not playing Friday

Tyler Flowers did not travel to New York with the rest of the team to take on the Mets due to having symptoms related to COVID-19. Despite having symptoms, he has tested negative.

Fantasy Impact

Flowers should be considered day-to-day until we get additional information and he takes another COVID test. Alex Jackson is starting at catcher in his stead.

Tyler Flowers re-signing with Braves

The Braves are re-signing Tyler Flowers on a one-year contract worth $4 million.

Fantasy Impact

This is just some clever accounting by the Braves, who are declining Flowers' $6 million option and handing him a $2 million buyout. So he'll still receive $6 million for his 2020 services, but only $4 million will go towards the team's payroll. The 33-year-old will once again get a decent amount of starts behind the plate for Atlanta next year.

Tyler Flowers hits sixth home run Sunday

Braves catcher Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Phillies. The homer was his sixth of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Flowers has solid overall offensive numbers for a catcher but splits time almost evenly with Brian McCann, limiting the fantasy appeal of both.
