On June 20 Dexter Fowler found himself in Triple-A, demoted with a .238 BA and only two steals in 8 attempts. He was 3-for-33 at Colorado Springs amid discussion he was no longer in the organization’s long-term plans.
He returned to Colorado a few weeks later and, over the next two-and-a-half months, collected 22 doubles, 10 triples and reached base 40 percent of his AB’s. Now the Milton High grad is deemed untouchable.
Or is he?
The Rockies insist he’s not available but beat writer Troy Renck suggests if they’re determined to get Prado they’ll have to part with Fowler.
I’d do that, though I’m not entirely sold on Fowler.
Then I see he has 39 triples in 405 games and a .355 OBP. He’s still only 25 and would be under team control for three years. He’s fast and athletic, two qualities the Braves lack.
Yeah, I’d do that.
