Dexter Fowler Takes Batting Practice Wednesday Wed 7/15/20 1:28 PM

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler (back) was able to take batting practice on Wednesday at Cardinals summer camp. Fowler had been out for a few days with tightness in his back, but the team never seemed too concerned about it and now he's back on the field. It shouldn't affect his availability for Opening Day. Fowler hit .238/.346/.409 with 19 home runs, 67 RBI and 69 runs scored last season. He's an extremely streaky hitter worth starting in fantasy when he's hot, but he's hard to ...

Dexter Fowler Scuffling Through Spring Tue 3/3/20 11:26 AM

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler has not had a good spring so far. Fowler, who was awful in 2018 before rebounding with an at-least-average 2019, is 1-for-15 so far in Grapefruit League games. Even with the slight bounce back, his 2019 line of .238/.346/.409 wasn't great, and it may be time for the Cardinals to consider someone else for the starting role. For now, it seems like it's Fowler's spot to lose, but unless he can turn things around before Opening Day, he may indeed lose ...

Dexter Fowler Goes Hitless on Friday Fri 2/28/20 3:55 PM

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler went hitless in Friday's Grapefruit League loss against the New York Mets, ending up 0-for-3 with a strikeout. It's been an ugly start to the spring for Fowler, who is now hitting just .111 in Grapefruit League games. Still, he's essentially guaranteed a starting spot and should remain near the top of the Cardinals lineup. He struggled to a .238/.346/.409 line last season, but showed signs of strong play on occasion. He's worth a look near the end of...

Cardinals Could Trade Dexter Fowler Fri 1/10/20 12:17 AM

The St. Louis Cardinals have discussed trading outfielder Dexter Fowler this offseason and could move him in another deal, according to sources, as top prospect Dylan Carlson is expected to play a big role this year. The Cardinals dealt outfielders Jose Martinez and Randy Arozarena to the Rays on Thursday in exchange for top left-handed pitching prospect Matthew Liberatore and catching prospect Edgardo Rodriguez. St. Louis has an abundance of outfielders even after the trade of Martinez and...

Dexter Fowler Ends Season In Huge Slump Wed 10/16/19 1:29 AM

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler coaxed a pinch-hit walk and scored a run as the Cardinals were swept by the Nationals in the NLCS. Fowler really disappointed in the playoffs, eventually losing his starter's role to Jose Martinez in the final few games. Fowler delivered in the postseason for the Cubs in 2016 but went only 2-for-33 (.061) in the playoffs for the Cardinals. Fowler has failed to live up to the huge contract he signed with St. Louis several seasons ago and heads into ...

Dexter Fowler Heads Into October Cold Thu 10/3/19 1:38 AM

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler is hitting only .140 over his last 57 at-bats heading into the team's NLDS battle against the Braves. Most remember Fowler's playoff heroics for the Cubs back in 2016 but this is a different player at a different stage in his career. Fowler did manage to post a .346 on base percentage this season despite hitting .238 but is mostly hit-or-miss offensively. Fowler could spark the Cardinals at times but lacks the type of upside that prevents him from ...

Dexter Fowler Out of First Game of Sunday's Doubleheader Sun 9/1/19 12:11 PM

St. Louis outfielder Dexter Fowler will sit in the first game of the Cardinals doubleheader with the Reds on Sunday.

Dexter Fowler is Off Sunday Sun 8/18/19 12:30 PM

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. Fowler will get a routine day off here to rest, so he should be back in there next game. Lane Thomas will draw the start in center field and bat seventh versus lefty Alex Wood. Thomas has been sharp with the bat since being recalled and has some cheap DFS appeal against Wood on Sunday.
