The deal also includes a $6 million club option for 2020, along with a $2 million buyout for that season. Flowers, 32, is hitting .225/.357/.335 this season with five home runs, six doubles and 20 RBI. Flowers had an MLB-best 28.1 runs above average last season, he’s ninth (5.6) in a year in which he missed 24 games after suffering an oblique injury in his first at-bat of the season.
