CF - OAK - MiLB
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.
Dustin Fowler went 1-for-5 with a double and an RBI on Wednesday against the Tigers.
Fowler continues to chip in whenever he gets a start, but he never plays against lefties and hasn't shown either the power or speed to be useful in nearly any fantasy format. He's better left on the waiver wire until he begins to show some of his patented speed.
