Center Field - Pittsburgh Pirates
Height: 6' 0"
Date of Birth: December 29, 1994 (26 years old)
Pirates' Dustin Fowler: Collects double Sunday
Fowler went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Sunday's 7-1 victory over the Cubs.He also made a fine running grab in center field. Sunday's effort was particularly important because Fowler has struggled for the most part in in 2021. The double was his first extra-base hit and lifted his slash line to .222/.286/.278 in 21 plate appearances. Fellow center fielder Anthony Alford is still looking for his first hit after 15 at-bats, but there has been discussion of moving Bryan Reynolds from left field to center in an effort to keep Phillip Evans in the lineup after Ke'Bryan Hayes (wrist) returns.
Pirates' Dustin Fowler: Disappointing start
Fowler went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in a 4-3 loss to the Reds on Monday.Fowler made his second start in center field Monday. He's hitless since collecting an Opening Day pinch-hit single -- going 1-for-8 --and has done little to warrant additional playing time. Fellow center fielder Anthony Alford's struggles are one of the few reasons why Fowler might see more opportunities in the short-term.
