Dexter Fowler clubbed his second home run of the season as the Cardinals rolled over the Reds on Friday.

Fowler launched his solo homer off of Tyler Mahle, increasing the Cardinals' advantage to 2-0 in the sixth inning. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-5. While his bat has picked up in recent days, he's still hitting just .196/.281/.339 with two homers and six RBI on the young season.

Dexter Fowler went 2-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Reds on Thursday.

Fowler led the way in the Cardinals' 13-run outburst, collecting a pair of singles and a walk atop the Cards lineup. It was just his third multi-hit game of the young season. It's been that kind of year for Fowler to date, batting just .180/.276/.280 through Thursday's game.

Dexter Fowler is getting the day off Wednesday.

Harrison Bader will start in right field and bat seventh versus Brewers right-hander Junior Guerra. Greg Garcia is serving as the Cardinals' leadoff man and starting at shortstop in place of Paul DeJong.
Apr 11 - 11:09 AM

Dexter Fowler finished 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in the Cardinals' loss to the Brewers on Monday.

Fowler got the Cardinals on the board with an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning and tied things up with a run-scoring sac fly in the bottom of the ninth before Greg Holland gave it away in his dreadful 2018 debut. Fowler is slashing just .167/.217/.286 through 10 games this season, but he should be in no danger of losing his spot at the top of the St. Louis lineup.
Apr 9 - 11:10 PM

Dexter Fowler went 1-for-3 plus a pair of walks and scored two runs as the Cardinals shut out the Brewers on Wednesday evening.

Fowler doubled and came around to score the game's first run on an RBI groundout by Tommy Pham in the first inning. It's the second straight strong start for the veteran outfielder who is now hitting .154/.241/.308 with one homer and two RBI on the young season.
Apr 4 - 10:35 PM

Dexter Fowler swatted a leadoff home run on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Cardinals past the Brewers.

Fowler got the Cardinals started with a bang in this one, taking Chase Anderson deep to start the game. He finished the night 2-for-5. Even with the strong night though, Fowler is hitting just .130/.167/.261 through his first five games.
Apr 3 - 11:15 PM

Dexter Fowler went 1-for-3 with an RBI-triple in Saturday's Grapefruit League loss to the Marlins.

He drove in a run with a triple in the sixth inning, then came in to score on a Jedd Gyorko groundout. Fowler is shifting from center field to right field this year. He's also bulked up and could hit for more power than in seasons past.
Mar 10 - 4:26 PM

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 22, 2017 01:06:00 AM

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.
