Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Scores twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler went 0-for-2 with two walks and two runs in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

The veteran outfielder came home on both of Dylan Carlson's big hits on the night, a two-run home run in the fourth that snapped a 1-1 tie and a sixth-inning double that gave St. Louis some breathing room. Fowler only has a pair of singles since returning from the injured list Monday, but he's also drawn three walks and scored thrice overall during that span.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Singles in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (not injury related) returned to the lineup in Monday's loss to the Royals and went 1-for-4 with a strikeout.

The veteran outfielder had been sidelined on the COVID-19 injured list since Sept. 2 while taking potentially immunosuppressive medication for a stomach ailment. Now back to full health, Fowler should remain in his starting right field spot for the final week of the regular season as the Cardinals make a push for a postseason spot.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Activated from COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (not injury related) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Fowler has been shut down for the past three weeks while completing a medication regimen for a stomach ailment that would have put him at a higher risk for COVID-19. However, he'll now rejoin the active roster with just under a week remaining in the regular season. The 34-year-old should reclaim his role as the starting right fielder for the Cardinals as they compete for a playoff spot.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Joining club in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler, who remains on the COVID-19 injured list, announced Sunday via his personal Instagram account that he's driving to Kansas City to meet the Cardinals ahead of Monday's series opener versus the Royals.

Fowler hasn't appeared in game for the Cardinals since Sept. 1, as the outfielder has been shut down for the past three weeks while completing a medication regimen for a stomach ailment that would have made him more vulnerable than most players to COVID-19, if he were to contract the virus. The 34-year-old has apparently responded well to resuming baseball activities within the past week, and the fact that he's traveling with the big club suggests he could be activated before the end of the regular season. The Cardinals would need to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Fowler in order for him to play, but the team could easily do that by transferring Dakota Hudson (forearm) -- who is unlikely to pitch again in 2020 -- to the 45-day injured list.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: More info likely by end of weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (not injury related) continues to work out at Busch Stadium, and there should be a clearer indication of whether he can join the team early next week in Kansas City by Sunday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Fowler has reportedly been recovering well from his workouts, so there appears to be an increasing likelihood of the veteran getting some game action in before any possible playoff run. The medication that Fowler is taking for a stomach ailment is reportedly having its intended effect, and if he's able to come off it altogether soon, the effects it has on his immune system should subside, which in turn would allow him to return to the team.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Could return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (not injury related) resumed workouts and Busch Stadium and could rejoin the Cardinals sometime next week, FOX Sports Midwest reports.

The 34-year-old's status for the rest of the season has been in question due to the potential side effects of his current medication regimen, but he may be able to return to the team during the final week of the regular season. Even should that not be the case, Fowler should still be able to rejoin the team for any potential playoff run.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Could be done for year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (not injury related) could miss the remainder of the regular season, as the medication regimen that sent him to the injured list in early September lasts for 25-30 days, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Fowler could potentially be able to play through his stomach ailment, but the medication he's taking for it adversely affects his immune system, which certainly isn't a good thing during a pandemic. It's still possible that he returns late in the campaign, however, if a doctor clears him before the regimen is fully completed. If not, he should be back right around the start of the playoffs.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Showing some improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler, who is on the COVID-19 injured list due to medication he's taking for a stomach ailment, is starting to feel better, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "It's going to be some period of time," manager Mike Shildt said, "but he's starting to regulate and feeling better and eat a little bit more consistently. So positive things for him personally."

The news the veteran outfielder has been able to up his nutritional intake is certainly positive with respect to his recovery. However, as Shildt himself alludes to, Fowler could potentially be out beyond just the minimum time required by his injured-list stint, although more clarity on the situation should come in the next few days.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Sidelined due to medication
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler's placement on the COVID-19 injured list is due to the fact that he's taking a medication which compromises his immune system, placing him at a heightened risk regarding the virus, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Fowler has reportedly taken the same medication for a stomach issue in the past, but the medical realities that come with playing baseball during a pandemic will force him to be extra careful this time around. He's expected to be sidelined for at least a couple weeks but should have a shot to return before the end of the season. Some combination of Harrison Bader, Tyler O'Neill and Lane Thomas should see increased playing time in the outfield during his absence.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was placed on the injured list for unspecified reasons Wednesday.

The Cardinals did not specify which injured list the outfielder was placed on. Rangel Ravelo (illness) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move, though it will likely be Harrison Bader, Tyler O'Neill and Lane Thomas who benefit most from the additional at-bats available in the outfield.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Late removal from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler won't start Wednesday's game against the Royals, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The 34-year-old was penciled in to start in right field, but he was a late removal from the starting nine. Fowler is a healthy scratch and won't play Wednesday in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake. Tommy Edman will move to right field while Matt Carpenter starts at third base.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Timely two-bagger in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler went 1-for-4 with a two-run double and a walk in a win over the Royals on Monday.

The veteran outfielder's seventh-inning double extended the Cardinals' lead to 6-0 at the time and rang up Fowler's sixth and seventh RBI of the season. The 34-year-old's solid .277/.333/.426 line is an improvement over much of the last two seasons, even as Fowler's current 27.5 percent strikeout rate over 51 plate appearances qualifies as a career-high figure.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The 34-year-old has hits in each of his past three games, but he'll head to the bench for Sunday's series finale. Fowler could see more regular off days with Tyler O'Neill, Dylan Carlson and Harrison Bader all in the outfield rotation for the Cardinals.
