CHICAGO -- Tyler Flowers returned to the White Sox lineup Monday after missing the Marlins series due to back spasms. The problem wasn't as bad as the back spasms he dealt with during Spring Training, according to Flowers.

"Nothing in particular happened again. I just kind of woke up with it, and I had a hard time moving a few days ago," Flowers said. "If anyone has a secret, let me know. I don't know what's causing it or what it is.

"I'm just continuing to do the same things I've done. I do a number of back exercises and stuff, and with this episode in spring, I'm just trying to avoid it."

Flowers felt considerably better on Sunday and said that swinging causes him to feel the back pain the most.
