|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/26/15) Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Nationals. This is the 18th straight game that Fowler is starting for manager Joe Maddon, and the speedy center fielder has 16 hits in 63 at-bats (.254 average) in his last 17 games.
In that 17-game stretch, Fowler has four home runs, three doubles and a triple. He is 2 for 13 lifetime against Jordan Zimmermann, who starts for the Nationals on Tuesday.
Cubs CF Dexter Fowler hits third HR in last 11 games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler had just one hit in four at-bats Tuesday against the Padres, but he at least made it count. Fowler connected for his fourth home run -- a solo shot off James Shields in the third inning.
Fowler has now homered twice in his last five games. His last three home runs have been solo shots and have all happened in his last 11 games.
Fowler is batting .317 (13 for 41) with a .610 slugging percentage, three doubles, three home runs, five RBI, seven walks, nine strikeouts, 13 runs and two stolen bases in his last 11 games.
Dexter Fowler homers, scores three times for Cubs
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler hit a solo home run and went 2 for 3 in Thursday's win over the Mets.
"Fowler's home run was big," manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "I know it was a solo shot, but it puts a different thought in the pitcher's mind. All of a sudden he's not as comfortable or as aggressive as he might have been otherwise."
Fowler scored three times and increased his batting average to .271. He hit his third home run and recorded his ninth RBI.
|2014 summary: Leaving Coors Field didn't hurt Dexter Fowler's production that much in his first season as a member of the Astros, though missing roughly one-quarter of the season with an intercostal strain didn't help. In the 116 games Fowler did play, he hit .276 with a .375 on-base percentage, but he produced just eight home runs and 11 stolen bases. The one area that Coors Field did provide Fowler with an edge was triples, and he hit only four of them with Houston.|
Playing time status: Fowler has never played as many as 145 games in any season, and he played in fewer than 120 games in each of the last two years. Figure that Fowler will likely spend some time on the disabled list again this season.
2015 outlook: Fowler doesn't produce enough in any of the traditional 5x5 categories to have standard mixed league value in Rotisserie leagues. His high walk rates do make him a marginal choice in points leagues; in 2014, he finished 41st among outfielders in Fantasy points per game. In those formats, he's a reasonable use of a late- or reserve-round pick.
