Flowers doesn't want back "to ruin this opportunity"

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- After not catching since Thursday because of lower back stiffness, Tyler Flowers was penciled in to start Tuesday against the Reds. Flowers, who was given the No. 1 job after A.J. Pierzynski was allowed to walk in free agency, has a new routine that he hopes prevents the back from tightening on him again.

"I don't want something like this to ruin this opportunity,'' he said.

Flowers said the back bothered him most when running.

"Hitting was fine, throwing was fine. I caught a bullpen, that was fine,'' he said. "Running was the only time I felt it but it feels a lot better today so hopefully I don't feel it at all.''
