I'm very uncertain of that- but there are some interesting 2nd half comparisons for AJ vs. Flowers-

AJ- .269 BA, .311 OBP, .470 SLG, .781 OPS
Flowers- .253/.337/.507/.840

Flowers only had 1/3 of the ABs- but AJ definitely tailed off in the 2nd half-that might have influenced the final decision- among other factors.
