Cubs' Dexter Fowler: Activated, leading off Friday

Fowler (hamstring) was activated from the DL and is back in the lineup Friday against the Brewers, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Albert Almora was sent back to Triple-A Iowa to free up a roster spot for the returning Fowler. As expected, Fowler and his .398 on-base percentage will slot back in atop the order immediately against right-hander Jimmy Nelson. Fowler wasn't running much before hitting the shelf -- his last stolen base came back on May 8 -- but he's been a very well-rounded asset for fantasy owners so far this season.
