… Flowers, 24, has been spending extra time in spring training refining his skills with John Orton, the Sox’s minor league catching instructor and a former major leaguer.
“There’s a lot of work to be done,” said Flowers, who was successful in throwing out base stealers 29 percent of the time last year at Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. “It’s definitely getting better. I’m sticking with the basics, like receiving and blocking pitches. It’s just like hitting. The more you stick with it, the better you’re going to get. And I’m more comfortable with it, and you’ll see the results in the games.”
