 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Tyler Flowers is going to have a busy spring.
In addition to having to handle the White Sox pitching staff, the 27-year-old catcher will be expected to add some offense into a lineup that will miss the production of the guy he's replacing, A.J. Pierzynski.
Also, he'll have to deal with the pressure of replacing a fan favorite who was one of the last remaining links to the White Sox's 2005 World Series championship team.
``Saying this from a team perspective, Tyler Flowers is stepping into a very, very tough situation,'' White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy said.
``We lost an iconic figure and world champion in A.J. I know for the fans it's hard to watch franchise players like him and (Mark) Buehrle leave. I hope the fan base doesn't get on Tyler Flowers' case because he has such big shoes to fill. He's not going to be A.J. Pierzynski and he's going to feel that pressure at times if he has a bad week not hitting.''
