Player Notes
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Dexter Fowler is "not 100 percent over the soreness."

Advice: Fowler sat out Sunday with "general soreness" before playing in four straight, but he's out of the lineup again Friday. It seems fair to question whether it might actually be Fowler's hamstring that's bothering him again and the Cubs just don't want to divulge that information. The veteran outfielder was activated from the disabled list a week ago after missing over a month of action. The Cubs have Jason Heyward in center field, Ben Zobrist in right and Javier Baez at second base Friday.

Dexter Fowler (soreness) went 1-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in his return to the lineup Monday against the Mariners.

Advice: Fowler was held out of the starting lineup Sunday due to general soreness, but he felt well enough to serve as the designated hitter for Monday's interleague contest. Cubs manager Joe Maddon told Carrie Muskat of MLB.com that he's still getting in "baseball shape" after his hamstring injury, so he should be back up to speed soon.

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.
