Dexter Fowler said Friday that he added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason.
Fowler belted a career-high 18 home runs in 2017 even though he played just 118 games and he also posted a career-best .488 slugging percentage. He's moving to right field for the Cardinals in 2018 and with the added bulk it sounds like he'll attempt to continue trying to tap into his power. Feb 16 - 1:19 PM

Cardinals president John Mozeliak met with Dexter Fowler this week about moving to a corner outfield spot in 2018.

Tommy Pham is a better defender than Fowler and should slide over to center for St. Louis next year after playing primarily in left field throughout the 2017 campaign. "I wanted to meet with [Fowler] face to face," Mozeliak confirmed Tuesday at baseball’s GM Meetings. "First off, I enjoy his company. Secondly, I did not want him to be hearing or reading about things that may or may not happen with him. I wanted him to know that he was not someone we were looking to trade. I did want him to understand that we may ask him to play a different position."

Dexter Fowler is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Saturday.

Fowler has been a bit banged up and the Cardinals don't have anything to play for, so this doesn't come as a huge surprise. Harrison Bader is starting in center field and batting sixth for the Cardinals.

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Friday, leading the Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the Pirates.

Fowler got the Cardinals on the board with a run-scoring single in the first inning, then plated the go-ahead run with a fielder's choice in the ninth. He also nabbed his seventh stolen base of the season in the game. With his two-hit night, Fowler is slashing .272/.370/.504 with 18 homers and 62 RBI on the season.

Dexter Fowler finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Cardinals outlasted the Reds 8-5 on Thursday.

Fowler had three of the Cardinals' 14 hits on the night, the fourth time in his last five games he's collected multiple hits. He's also driven in multiple runs in each of his last four contests. The hot stretch has the Cardinals' middle-of-the-order hitter batting .270/.367/.504 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, 67 runs scored and six steals in 111 games this year.

Dexter Fowler hit a game-tying solo homer in the eighth inning and a go-ahead RBI double in the 10th inning of Tuesday's comeback win over the Reds.

Fowler's drive off of Kevin Shackleford in the eighth just barely cleared the right-center field wall and Scott Schebler's glove. He then doubled down the line to put the Cards ahead in extra innings. Fowler also had a single and drew a walk, reaching base four times on the night. The outfielder is now 7-for-12 with two homers since returning from a bruised knee.
