      Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Gets day off

      Dexter Fowler is out of Wednesday's starting lineup against the Royals.Fowler will get another day off after taking a seat in Monday's series opener.

Harrison Bader will get the nod in Fowler's place and is set to bat sixth.

      Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Takes seat Monday

      Dexter Fowler is out of the lineup Monday against the Royals.Fowler has reached base in five straight games, but he'll head to the bench for the second time in three games as the St. Louis Cardinals give Tyler O'Neill -- one of the team's top prospects -- a third consecutive start in the outfield. The veteran is hitting just .160/.281/.292 through 40 games this season; while his job remains secure at the moment, Fowler could continue to cede some opportunities to O'Neill if he doesn't figure things out at the dish relatively soon.

      Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: On base four times Wednesday

      Dexter Fowler went 2-for-3 with a two-run single, two walks and a run in a win over the Twins on Wednesday. He was also caught stealing on his only attempt.Like teammate Matt Carpenter, Fowler has been mired in an extended season-opening slump that has led to some of the worst numbers of his long career. However, like Carpenter, Fowler also snapped out of his doldrums in notable fashion Wednesday, posting his first multi-hit effort since April 13 in the process. The veteran outfielder does have a pair of home runs and six RBI in May, but it's been an extremely rough month otherwise -- even factoring in his breakout afternoon, he's still hitting just .128 over 12 games during the month.

      Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Putting in extra batting cage time

      Dexter Fowler, who's slashing .146/.257/.285 over his first 152 plate appearances, is putting in extra time in the batting cage as part of his attempt to improve his production at the plate, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "I am not liking playing poorly," Fowler said. "At the end of the day you get in there and you need that -- at-bats. You can fix stuff in the cage but need it in the game. Which is not going to happen overnight."All three components of the veteran's slash line are his worst since his initial 13-game big-league cup of coffee with the Rockies in 2008, and there's too much of a sample size at this point in the season to simply dismiss the struggles as an outlier. The switch-hitting Fowler has especially been inept against left-handed pitching. Fowler is just 1-for-30 with 13 strikeouts against southpaws, which has led to Harrison Bader seeing more playing time of late. The surging Tyler O'Neill, now slashing .333/.342/.752 with 13 home runs and 30 RBI at Triple-A Memphis, could also see opportunities at Fowler's expense this summer, Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

      Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Launches game-winning homer in extras

      Dexter Fowler went 1-for-6 with a game-winning two-run home run in the bottom of the 14th against the Cubs on Sunday. He also walked once.Fowler may not be collecting many hits thus far this season, but he's displayed a penchant for delivering in timely fashion on the rare occasions he has success. The veteran outfielder launched a 351-foot rope to right that just cleared the fence with Harrison Bader aboard, giving the St. Louis Cardinals the rather unlikely win after the Cubs' Javier Baez had afforded his squad the lead in the top half of the frame with a solo shot. Fowler had also provided a game-winning single in extras against the Mets on April 26, and he's compiled a solid 16 RBI overall. However, his line remains a forgettable .161/.278/.321, with an absurd .160 BABIP certainly playing a prominent role in his struggles.

      Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Smacks fourth homer

      Dexter Fowler went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.Fowler was riding a 1-for-23 stretch before the two-run shot, seeing his average drop to .170 in the process. Even if it ends up being a down year for the 32-year-old, it seems unlikely that his average would remain below the Mendoza Line for much longer. Fowler seems to be suffering from some terrible luck, as he currently has a .183 BABIP (.335 for his career).
