It's been a tough year for White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers and with Monday's news, the worst had not even come yet. Tyler's right shoulder has been bothering him for a while, so he will undergo exploratory surgery on it this Thursday. According to the 27 year-old (as reported by Scott Merkin), the "problem was discovered" exactly one year ago. The recovery process is expected to take 3-6 months, getting him back anytime between December and April. It'll be interesting to see what the team decides to do with him this offseason. He certainly won't be the team's starter likely at any point in 2014, but he does have a shot at a backup role. But again, the future at the catcher position is still very much up in the air for the White Sox. Bryan Anderson, 26, and Miguel Gonzalez, 22, were both among the team's September call-ups. These catchers would both love to impress throughout the month to give themselves a shot at the major league ball club next year as well. Flowers' last at-bat of the 2013 season came on Sunday, when he blasted a mammoth home run out of Fenway Park off of Red Sox reliever Craig Breslow, his tenth of the year.
