"Where I'm at, I have a pretty good chance if it does continue to be a week at a time, and I don't think it will be," Flowers said. "If it does happen to be, I feel like I'm in a good spot.
"[Hitting coach Jeff] Manto is really working with me on some stuff, keeping it as simple as we can to have a fighting chance in the box. I feel really good where I'm at."
Flowers appreciates manager Robin Ventura looking at his bench players more like secondary starters then seldom-used players in reserve.
"That's kind of what it looks like, which is good," Flowers said. "He's not that far removed from playing, so I think he understands to keep the 'bench guys' ready and in shape.
"It would be good to get us in there a little more often. If something happens or when we need to be in a big situation, we have a little extra confidence going from an at-bat two days ago instead of eight days ago."
