The Cubs have yet to make a decision about whether to place Dexter Fowler (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list.

Fowler left Saturday's game with right hamstring discomfort and was sent for an MRI on Sunday. The Cubs appear content with waiting things out in the short-term before making a decision on his status.

Dexter Fowler underwent an MRI on his injured hamstring on Sunday.

Cubs skipper Joe Maddon said that the plan is to not rush Fowler back into action, though no determination has been made yet as to whether or not he'll require a trip to the disabled list. Expect further clarification on his status before Monday night's game against the Cardinals. Fantasy owners should have a contingency option in place if Fowler is indeed heading for an extended absence.

Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com hears that Dexter Fowler's right hamstring injury is not considered serious.

Fowler departed Saturday's game after tweaking his hammy, but he felt better on Sunday. That presumably means that he's going to avoid the disabled list for now, although it's unclear when he might be ready to return to the Cubs' lineup. He's sitting out on Sunday, as Jason Heyward has slid over to center field and Chris Coghlan and Kris Bryant are in the corner outfield spots.

Dexter Fowler left Saturday's game against the Pirates with right hamstring discomfort.

Fowler grounded out in his one at-bat and apparently tweaked something on his way to first base. Albert Almora replaced him in center field in the second inning. If it's a strain, Fowler could be headed to the 15-day disabled list.

Dexter Fowler is getting the day off Wednesday.

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-5 and scored a pair of runs in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Dexter Fowler went 1-for-4 with a double and plated the Cubs' lone run in Friday's loss to the Braves.

Fowler's run-scoring groundout in the third inning wound up being the extent of their offense against Bud Noris and company on Friday. Fowler continues to do a tremendous job as a tablesetter atop the Cubs lineup, slashing .299/.411/.505 with seven homers, 27 RBI and six stolen bases.
Jun 10 - 11:36 PM

Dexter Fowler went 0-for-2 with a walk and two strikeouts in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Dodgers, ending his hit streak at seven games.

Fowler collected a hit in 23 of the 26 games he played in May, so his oh-fer on Wednesday cut against his recent performance. Still, he walked in the bottom of the third and came around to score on Kris Bryant's home run. The 30-year-old is now hitting .313/.435/.527 on the year with 35 runs. He's been a top-15 fantasy outfielder and should continue to benefit from a strong top-to-bottom lineup in the Windy City.
