Dexter Fowler’s defensive renaissance

It seems like Dexter Fowler is back.

He started the season hot, and with that came speculation. Is it for real? Is the Dexter Fowler who served as the jumpstart to the 2016 Cubs and turned in a pretty solid 2017 for the Cardinals making his way back?

It’s hard to deny at this point. He came back from the IL and continued to perform well. Fowler is sporting an OBP over .400. His slugging percentage is over that mark now, too, after his home run on Tuesday night. His wRC+ keeps climbing, now at 134 over his first 130 PA.
