CF - PIT - MiLB
The Pirates acquired OF Dustin Fowler from the A's in exchange for cash considerations.
Fowler was one a top-100 prospect but has struggled in the majors. The 26-year-old isn't currently on the fantasy radar.
Dustin Fowler has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas after Spring Training.
Fowler had a pretty solid Spring as he hit two homers and recorded two steals through 16 games played. He was never expected to start the season in the majors.
Dustin Fowler went 0-for-5 with one strikeout on Friday against the Mariners.
Fowler has slashed .341/.364/.520 in 55 triple A games this season and Fowler wasn't great in his MLB start earlier this season as he slashed .231/.260/.368 in 59 games. Short term he doesn't look like the best player to use but, there is a lot of potential for Fowler. He's worth picking up in AL only leagues.
Dustin Fowler went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a home run on Friday against the Indians.
Fowler continues to be productive batting atop the A's lineup, but he has offered little in the way of speed, with just five stolen bases against three caught-stealings. He still sits against lefties, and with mediocre power, he doesn't really make the grade in most mixed leagues.
Dustin Fowler went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a solo home run against the Indians on Saturday.
Fowler's coming into his own a bit, though his owners are probably hoping for more speed. Still, he's locked in the lineup against righties, and should be an excellent source of runs scored batting out of the leadoff spot in those situations.
