08:24 PM ET 11.04 | With A.J. Pierzynski seemingly on his way out of Chicago, a new employee of whomever is willing to offer the most years for the most money, the White Sox find themselves trying to figure out how exactly they should move forward with regards to catcher position. As it stands, broken hand or not, Tyler Flowers is set to slide in and take over the everyday duties. His defensive performance has been less of a concern than originally thought, but conversely, the offense that was supposedly ready to play at the big league level years ago has yet to really show itself consistently. In about 150 2012 plate appearances Flowers managed to strike out over a third of the time while displaying some big power when making contact. You and I may look at his .213/.296/.412 line and think that if this guy is going to play 4 out of 5 days, he???ll need to make big improvements.

Well, high time to find out for sure if Flowers can play.
