Dexter Fowler (back) expects to be back in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

The Cards had Magneuris Sierra on their taxi squad in case Fowler didn't recover quickly from a sore back, but it sounds like he'll be fine. He's hit .441/.587/.824 this month since returning from the disabled list.

Dexter Fowler finished 2-for-3 with a triple, three RBI and three runs scored to help the Cardinals come back to beat the Pirates 11-7 on Thursday.

With the Cards trailing by a run in the seventh inning, Fowler ripped a pitch down the right field line that plated two and allowed the speedy outfielder to race around for his sixth triple of the year. He also walked twice in the game, reaching base in four of five plate appearances. It's nothing new for Fowler since his return from the disabled list -- in 10 games, he's now 14-for-31 with five doubles, two triples, a home run, 11 RBI and 11 runs scored. The hot stretch has his overall line up to a passable .262/.363/.489.

Dexter Fowler went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Tuesday in Boston.

Fowler doubled in a pair of runs in the sixth inning to get the Cardinals on the scoreboard, although it made it a 9-2 deficit at that point. The center fielder has been red-hot since returning from the disabled list, hitting .458 (11-for-24) with eight RBI over eight contests.

Dexter Fowler hit a grand slam in the seventh inning that proved to be the difference in the Cardinals' 8-6 win over the Royals on Thursday.

A day after a kitten scurried onto the field shortly before Yadier Molina cranked a grand slam to give the Cards a lead, Fowler required no such rally animal ahead of his salami against Royals reliever Neftali Feliz. The 31-year-old actually got the scoring started for the Cardinals an inning earlier with an RBI double, giving him five RBI when all was said and done. He's been on fire since coming off the disabled list Monday, going 6-for-13 with three doubles, a triple and a homer in four games. Fowler is batting .251/.349/.479 overall in his first season with the St. Louis club.
Aug 11 - 1:49 AM

Cardinals activated OF Dexter Fowler from the 10-day disabled list.

Fowler is in center field and hitting sixth Monday in Kansas City, which is the lowest he's batted in the order this season. He'ss missed the last two weeks with a strained right forearm muscle.
Aug 7 - 4:14 PM

Dexter Fowler (forearm) is expected to be activated from the disabled list early next week.

Fowler met up with the Cardinals this weekend in Cincinnati and took on-field batting practice prior to Saturday night's game against the Reds. The center fielder has been on the disabled list since July 25 because of a left forearm strain. He's slashing .241/.333/.452 with 14 home runs, 37 RBI, four stolen bases, and 43 runs scored through his first 81 games with St. Louis.
Aug 5 - 5:55 PM

Dexter Fowler (forearm) could meet up with the Cardinals this weekend in Cincinnati to take live batting practice.

Fowler resumed baseball-related activities this week and will advance to more intense workouts within the next couple of days. The center fielder landed on the disabled list July 25 after being diagnosed with a left forearm strain. It sounds like he'll be ready for activation before the middle of August, though there are many hurdles to clear. Tommy Pham has been starting in center for St. Louis, with Randal Grichuk and Jose Martinez sharing left field duties.
Aug 3 - 12:36 PM

Cardinals placed OF Dexter Fowler on the 10-day disabled list with a left forearm strain.

It's not clear when he suffered the injury or how long it might put him on the shelf. Harrison Bader has been called up from Triple-A Memphis to fill Fowler's spot on the roster and the 23-year-old outfield prospect could be in line for regular playing time.
Jul 25 - 3:41 PM

Dexter Fowler reached base four times and stole a base in the Cardinals' comeback victory over the Cubs on Friday.

Fowler doubled in a run in the third inning and had a pair of singles. That's in addition to a walk that he drew as part of the Cardinals' nine-run eighth inning that turned a one-run deficit into an eight-run lead. The stolen base was only Fowler's fourth of the season and he's been caught three times, which is disappointing for a guy who swiped 33 bags over the previous two years with the Cubs. The nagging heel issue he's had could be a factor in his running game, and his OBP being down at .336 hasn't helped, either.
Jul 21 - 5:53 PM

Dexter Fowler (heel) homered in his return from the disabled list against the Mets Friday.

Fowler took Mets starter Jacob deGrom deep for a solo blast in the fourth inning. It was his only hit in the game. The 31-year-old now has 14 homers with a few games left in the first half; his single-season career high is 17. Even if he's struggled to stay healthy and hit for average, it seems Fowler's power stroke is enjoying the move from Chicago to St. Louis.
Jul 8 - 12:57 AM

Cardinals activated OF Dexter Fowler from the 10-day disabled list.

Fowler ramped up his workouts this week and his nagging right heel injury evidently felt good enough to give it a go. He's in center field and batting third against Jacob deGrom and the Mets.
Jul 7 - 4:25 PM

Dexter Fowler (heel) ran in the outfield with cleats on Wednesday.

"It's definitely a step in the right direction. Reports are it feels good and he's not having any issues with the spikes, which is encouraging," said manager Mike Matheny, who indicated that there have been no discussions about a possible rehab assignment. Should minor league rehab work not be necessary, here, Fowler could potentially return to the team for this weekend's series against the Mets.
