Dexter Fowler hit a solo home run and scored three times in a win over the Reds on Wednesday.

He registered two of his team's 15 hits on the night. The lead-off batter's home run was his 13th of the season to go with his .274 batting average, 46 RBI and 79 runs scored. He has stolen 10 bases in 14 attempts.

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a stolen base and two runs scored Tuesday against the Reds.

Fowler had a pair of singles, including his run-scoring single in the fourth inning that kicked off a four-run frame, and the stolen base was his 10th of the season. It's now the fourth time in his last five seasons that the 30-year-old has posted a double-double. Fowler also has 12 homers, 45 RBI and 76 runs scored to go with those 10 steals and his .272/.386/.438 line.

Dexter Fowler singled and ripped a two-run homer in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

Fowler deposited a Mike Leake offering well into the right field seats in the fifth inning. It was one of two longballs on the night for the Cubbies, as Ben Zobrist also went deep. Fowler hadn't homered since August 19 before hitting one over the boards on Monday.

Sep 5 - 10:26 AM

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Giants.

The multi-hit game was Fowler's third in his last seven contests, and he's now 10-for-32 with seven runs scored in his last eight games. The stolen base was just his ninth of the season after Fowler swiped 20 bags a year ago. The 30-year-old is hitting .278/.390/.446 with 10 bombs and 70 runs scored in 101 games this year.

Dexter Fowler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Pirates.

Ben Zobrist will also take the night off. Matt Szczur is in center field and batting eighth and Javier Baez is at second base and batting leadoff versus Chad Kuhl.
Aug 30 - 5:13 PM

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-5 with a homer and a walk Friday against the Rockies.

Fowler has been very ordinary since the first three weeks of the season, but his ordinary isn't so bad. At least, it comes with a .360 OBP, even if he is batting just .255 in his last 71 games. Plus, he should have a nice weekend in Coors Field.
Aug 20 - 2:58 AM

Dexter Fowler is not in the Cubs' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Brewers.

Matt Szczur will start in center field and bat leadoff versus Brewers right-hander Zach Davies. This appears to be a routine day of maintenance for Fowler.

Dexter Fowler is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

It's a routine day of rest. The Cubs also have Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist on the bench, as Matt Szczur is in center field, Jorge Soler is in right and Javier Baez is at second base.

Dexter Fowler went 3-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and two runs scored as the Cubs edged the Marlins 3-2 on Tuesday.

Fowler had a hand in all three of the Cubs' runs, scoring the first two and knocking in what turned out to be the winning run with a single in the seventh inning. Fowler also stole a base and hit his fourth triple of the season in the win. The dynamic outfielder has been terrific for the Cubs when healthy this year, batting .289/.403/.480 with eight homers, 34 RBI, 52 runs scored and eight steals in 75 games.

Dexter Fowler (general soreness) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his return to action Saturday.

Fowler has dealt with what the Cubs are just calling "general soreness" lately, as he sat out Friday's game. It shouldn't be a long-term issue.
Jul 31 - 9:16 AM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Dexter Fowler is "not 100 percent over the soreness."

Fowler sat out Sunday with "general soreness" before playing in four straight, but he's out of the lineup again Friday. It seems fair to question whether it might actually be Fowler's hamstring that's bothering him again and the Cubs just don't want to divulge that information. The veteran outfielder was activated from the disabled list a week ago after missing over a month of action. The Cubs have Jason Heyward in center field, Ben Zobrist in right and Javier Baez at second base Friday.
Jul 29 - 1:04 PM

Dexter Fowler (soreness) went 1-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in his return to the lineup Monday against the Mariners.

Fowler was held out of the starting lineup Sunday due to general soreness, but he felt well enough to serve as the designated hitter for Monday's interleague contest. Cubs manager Joe Maddon told Carrie Muskat of that he's still getting in "baseball shape" after his hamstring injury, so he should be back up to speed soon.
Jul 26 - 9:17 AM

Dexter Fowler is not in Sunday's lineup due to "general soreness," according to Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

He could just be a little sore after playing two straight games following a disabled list stint. Fowler should be ready to go on Monday. Jason Heyward is in center field, Ben Zobrist is in left and Tommy La Stella is at second base Sunday.
