    Flowers gone ?

    White Sox non-tendered C Tyler Flowers.

    Flowers underwent right knee surgery in early October. Once healthy, he'll be looking for a new place of employment, as the White Sox are moving the arbitration-eligible 29-year-old off their 40-man roster by declining to offer him a contract for 2016. He struggled to the tune of a .236/.292/.356 triple-slash with nine homers and 39 RBI in 2015 (331 at-bats), though those numbers certainly could have been affected by his knee woes. He's expected to be healthy entering spring training in 2016 and will be entering a barren market for catchers.>>

    Not totally surprising considering how much money the Sox would have to pay him and despite the lack of good Catchers, nearly all the ones who are available hit RHed.
    So Sox figured to save themselves a couple million $$ on this move.
