(8/9/14) Astros outfielder Dexter Fowler went 2 for 3 and drove in a run in his rehab debut with Triple-A Oklahoma City Friday.
Fowler is scheduled to play at least three games with Oklahoma City, meaning the earliest he would return to the Astros is Monday. He has hit .270/.377/.396 with six home runs, 24 RBI and six stolen bases in 285 at-bats. Fowler is recovering from an intercostal strain.
|Dexter Fowler is ready for a fresh start with the Astros after five up-and-down seasons with the Rockies. Fowler always appeared on the verge of a breakout run but could never sustain over the long haul. The Astros acquired Fowler in a December trade, sending Jordan Lyles and Brandon Barnes to Colorado, hoping a change of scenery might finally get Fowler to reach his full potential. Though, Fowler is a good line-drive hitter and he's leaving a ballpark suited to his strength for a ballpark that is not. It's still positive that Fowler goes from one hitter's park to another, but it's no guarantee a new lineup or league will make Fowler a superstar hitter. Fowler slumped to a .263 average and .407 slugging percentage in 119 games last season (limited mostly due to wrist and knee injuries) after batting .300 with a .474 slugging percentage the previous season. Fowler has enough upside to use a mid-to-late-round pick on him, but you could spend the entire season moving him in and out of Fantasy lineups.
