Dexter Fowler


Schwarber
The Chicago Cubs’ Kyle Schwarber started off his sophomore season the way no player wants to start any season. In the third game of the season at the Arizona Diamondback’s Chase Field, Schwarber tore his ACL and LCL – both imperative ligaments in the knee – in an outfield collision with centerfielder Dexter Fowler.

Chicago Cubs’ starter Jake Arrieta continued his phenomenal run since the beginning of the second half of the regular season, throwing yet another complete game four hit shutout while striking out 11 Pittsburgh Pirates batters. He did not even allow a walk. I know that a player’s postseason numbers do not count towards the Cy Young voting but if it did, Arrieta should be your guy Arrieta wasn’t the only member of the Cubs who shined. Rookie Kyle Schwarber was responsible for three of the Cubs’ four runs and Dexter […]

Astros and Colby Rasmus have deal in place


It’s breaking news this Monday morning. The Chicago Cubs have acquired switch-hitting centerfielder Dexter Fowler in a trade with the Houston Astros in exchange for infielder Luis Valbuena and right-handed pitcher Dan Straily. Fowler, 28, spent the first six years of his career with the Colorado Rockies. He was traded in December 2013 to the Houston Astros in exchange for right-handed pitcher Jordan Lyles and outfielder Brandon Barnes.
