Latest Update Dexter Fowler is not in the Astros starting lineup Saturday. Sat Sep, 13, 06:08 PM
Has a great mix of size, speed and athleticism. Can steal bases and has untapped power at the plate. A switch-hitter, he knows the value of taking a free pass. Shows a lot of range and a good arm in center field.
Flaws: : While he is patient at the plate, he strikes out too much. Is still somewhat raw as a base-runner, and in general. Makes his share of errors in the field. Could stand to add some bulk to his lanky frame.
This is likely just a routine day off for Fowler. He should be back in the lineup tomorrow. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Fowler has had himself a respectable first season with the Astros, slashing .270/.374/.397 with eight home runs, 32 RBI and 53 runs scored though 385 at-bats. However, he has yet to reach double-digits in stolen bases, which is one category he is supposed to thrive in. With that said he is a reach to be used in standard fantasy leagues the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
After a two-game 1-for-5 start in his return from the disabled list, Fowler has three-straight two-hit games and has the home run, two RBI and three runs cored to his credit. He's always been an interesting power/speed threat but the injuries continue to hinder his progress. He's a solid asset to have as a fourth of fifth outfielder and could be even more valuable if he ever does stay healthy and take the next step. Here's hoping he starts that journey here with the final month and a half of the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
