Player Notes
Dexter Fowler is not in Sunday's lineup due to "general soreness," according to Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

Advice: He could just be a little sore after playing two straight games following a disabled list stint. Fowler should be ready to go on Monday. Jason Heyward is in center field, Ben Zobrist is in left and Tommy La Stella is at second base Sunday.

Dexter Fowler celebrated his return from the disabled list by going 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

Advice: Fresh off missing a month and change with a hamstring injury, Fowler didn’t need any time to shake the rust. He made an immediate impact by socking a leadoff homer against Jimmy Nelson before adding an RBI double one inning later. The 30-year-old faded a bit in June prior to the injury, but he still owns a cool .298/.405/.504 batting line on the year.

Fri, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Cubs activated OF Dexter Fowler from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Fowler's recovery from a strained right hamstring came along a little more slowly than expected, but he's ready to roll now. He's in center field and batting leadoff Friday against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers.

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said Dexter Fowler (hamstring) will rejoin the team this weekend in Milwaukee.

Advice: The exact day of his arrival is unclear, but it could be Friday for the opener of the three-game series. Fowler appeared in both games of a doubleheader Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa, going 1-for-5 with a double and a walk. The 30-year-old center fielder will return to a shiny .290/.398/.483 batting line.

Dexter Fowler (hamstring) went 1-for-5 with a double and a walk in a doubleheader Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: Jorge Soler only played in the first game and went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. Fowler should be ready to return to the Cubs' active roster this weekend if he can avoid a physical setback over the next couple of days. He's been on the disabled list since June 19 because of a right hamstring strain.

Dexter Fowler (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

Advice: He'll be joined by Jorge Soler, who is coming back from a hamstring injury. Fowler appeared in one rehab game for Low-A South Bend before the All-Star break but quickly abandoned it when he realized he wouldn't be ready for the All-Star Game in San Diego. He shouldn't need more than a few games to shake off the rust.

Dexter Fowler (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment early next week.

Advice: He'll hang with his Cubs teammates all weekend, getting in daily workouts, before joining up with one of the organization's minor league affiliates for three or four rehab games. Fowler has been on the disabled list since June 19 because of a right hamstring injury. He was forced to miss Tuesday night's MLB All-Star Game.
