Dexter Fowler went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

The game was the third in a row in which the outfielder has gone yard, this time a three-run shot in the sixth inning. It's a microcosm of what has been a very good month for Fowler so far, as he's now hitting .315 (17-for-54) with five homers, 14 RBI and nine runs scored in June. He's also well on his way to a career high in homers -- he's got 12 on the year, just five shy of his personal best set in 2015. After a slow start, the 31-year-old is now hitting .249/.337/.484 overall.

Dexter Fowler hit a go-ahead three-run shot in the Cardinals' win over the Phillies on Sunday.

St. Louis was held scoreless by Phillies starter Aaron Nola until the bottom of the fifth inning, when Fowler followed a Kolten Wong double and a Greg Garcia walk with a three-run homer to right field. The home run was Fowler's ninth of the year. He also tallied his ninth double of the season in Sunday's victory.
Jun 11 - 5:54 PM

After getting Wednesday off, Dexter Fowler went 0-for-4 as the Cardinals' No. 2 hitter Thursday.

Today's game was the first in which Fowler opened up somewhere other than the leadoff spot since July 2015. There wasn't really any point in dropping him if it was just to hit him second instead, but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is getting increasingly desperate. Fowler is hitting just .222 at the moment, but his .737 OPS isn't too bad.
Jun 8 - 3:14 PM

Dexter Fowler is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Reds.

Tommy Pham is in center field and batting second with Matt Carpenter returning temporarily to the leadoff spot. Fowler has batted just .222/.317/.423 through his first 52 games with St. Louis. Yadier Molina is also sitting out Wednesday, with Eric Fryer filling in at catcher.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Despite the Cardinals missing a few of their regulars, they are still the most appealing offense on the board with Bronson Arroyo taking the rubber for Cincinnati. Arroyo has been brutally bad over the large majority of the season, and has somehow managed to allow 19 HRs through just 57.2 IP. He's also allowed a 22.0 Hd-Sft% to LH bats - including 10 of his 19 HRs surrendered - despite a low .208 BABIP. Expect the Cardinals to hang a crooked number on the 40 year old.

Dexter Fowler socked a solo home run in his return to Wrigley Field on Friday.

Fowler received his World Series ring before the game and then led off the first inning with a blast off of John Lackey that went well into the bleachers. He also had a walk on the day. Fowler's .232/.320/.446 batting line so far has certainly been a disappointment, but he does have eight home runs already.
