Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Out again Friday

Fowler (knee) will remain out of the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Cubs.

Fowler will stay on the bench for the fifth straight game while recovering from a left knee contusion. The center fielder was able to run down flyballs prior to Thursday's game, so a return to the field seems imminent, but Fowler will remain day-to-day for the time being. In his place, Harrison Bader draws another start, while batting eighth in the order.
