Fowler (foot) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday. The move will end Fowler's regular season, as his 60 days will expire Oct. 3. He'll end the year with a very disappointing .180/.278/.298 line and an uncertain role going into next season. Jose Martinez and Tyler O'Neill should continue to split time in right field for the foreseeable future.
Fowler (foot) will remain on his original rehabilitation plan -- which includes putting no weight on his foot until September -- after consulting with team physician Dr. George Paletta on Monday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Fowler is also supposed to wear a cast for a span of between 2-to-3 weeks following his rest period, so there will only be a handful of games left in the regular season by the time he's ready for activation. The veteran outfielder has endured a forgettable campaign overall, and the Cardinals may simply shut him down for the duration given the circumstances. More information on their plans should emerge within the next several weeks.
Fowler will not need surgery on his broken left foot but will be forced to wear a boot for at least a month, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. That timeline leaves only a few weeks for Fowler's potential return. Whether or not he returns at all will depend on how quickly the foot recovers and potentially whether or not the Cardinals are still fighting for a playoff spot.
Fowler (foot) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list ahead of Saturday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Fowler was initially diagnosed with a foot contusion, but after further examination, it was found that he fractured his left foot. He'll likely be forced to sit out for longer than the minimum, although a more concrete timetable for his return should be given in the near future. Fowler's injury opens the door for Tyler O'Neill to see regular playing time in the outfield.
Fowler left Friday's game against the Pirates with a left foot contusion, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Fowler appears to have avoided a significant injury, and he'll be considered day-to-day moving forward. He'll likely be reevaluated Saturday after arriving to the ballpark. Expect Tyler O'Neill to draw the start in right field if Fowler can't go.
