Cubs | Dexter Fowler suffers hand injury

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 19:16:19 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (hand) jammed his hand on the center field wall while catching a fly ball hit by Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier during the fourth inning of the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday, July 22. He remained in the game even though he had to repeatedly flex his hand.

Fantasy Tip: Fortunately, Fowler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) doesn't appear to be seriously injured, as evidenced by the fact that he continued playing. The Reds are off Thursday, July 23, but expect him to be back in the lineup Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Cogs ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting just .222 this month and doesn't have a lot of FantasyScore upside.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler will lead off Tuesday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:39:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler will bat leadoff Tuesday, July 7, against left-handed St. Louis Cardinals SPs Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney, according to manager Joe Maddon. Maddon noted Fowler was not leading off Monday, July 6 to, "just take some heat off him and work on what he needs to work on."

Fantasy Tip: Currently riding a 8-for-51 slump, Fowler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been struggling. There is a chance he will flip flop up and down the lineup over the next few weeks, but all that really changes is he'll trade runs scored upside for RBI opportunities.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler dropped in the order

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:33:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is mired in an 8-for-51 slump, so a move down the order might help him restart his punch at the dish. It'll also help his RBI opportunities, which could be a nice boost for his seasonal owners. Until he heats up, FantasyScore players should likely fade Fowler.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler takes a seat

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:31:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom. OF Chris Denorfia is hitting sixth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting .325 this season, but he has just six extra-base hits. He has a really low ceiling on FantasyScore today against Jacob deGrom.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler returns to the lineup

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:35:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is playing center field and batting first against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Friday, June 26. Fowler has been limited to pinch hitting since leaving the game with an ankle injury Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hasn't been at his best of late and sports a .163/.229/.256 slash line dating back to Friday, June 12. Still, he has plenty of upside leading off for the Cubs and hitting in front of their two best hitters. Consider Fowler a risk/reward FantasyScore play Friday.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler still out

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:38:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, with OF Chris Denorfia taking his place.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is in a 3-for-21 skid, but he's still hitting .319 on the season. He's not a bad basement option against Carlos Frias today.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler appears in a pinch

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:12:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) made a pinch-hitting appearance in the sixth inning Wednesday, June 24, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He grounded out in his only at-bat.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) has not started the past two games and should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return to the starting lineup and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler remains out

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:04:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Chris Denorfia is playing right field and batting first, and OF Matt Szczur is playing center field and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is missing his second consecutive game, but he did appear as a pinch hitting Tuesday, June 23, so it is safe to say he should return soon. In the meantime, Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) clocks in as a viable low-priced flier, and Szczur as a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
