First of all, Flowers was suspended back in 2006 (August). Sox acquired him in December 2008. That's not exactly "shortly before the Sox acquired him." Second, after 2006, assuming he was no longer using PED's his numbers (AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS) were:

2007 - .298/.378/.488/.866
2008 - .288/.427/.494/.921
2009 (AA-AAA) - .297/.423/.516/.939
2010 - .220/.334/.434/.768
2011 - .261/.390/.500/.890

He was a 20-year-old and had barely played professional ball before he was suspended, and assuming he's been clean following his suspension, I don't think his numbers since then can be considered artificial, and they look good. I would have high expectations based on them for his first season with regular playing time. In fact I do. I look forward to seeing what he can do for us this year.
