Bernie Miklasz in The Athletic talks about last year’s performance of one Dexter Fowler. If you didn’t follow St. Louis Cardinals baseball, Fowler had one of the most abysmal performances ever by a major leaguer.
Basically, Bernie thinks Fowler surprisingly isn’t completely on the outs (no pun intended) with the club. However, he isn’t exactly penciled in at right field either. Fans want the Cardinals to release him, pay him his $49.5 million, and walk away. Of course, that’s not realistic. Unfortunately, his trade value is below zero.
If the Cardinals do not land Bryce Harper to man right field, it likely will fall on Fowler to have a bounce back season. I have no idea if he’s going to do it. No one knows.
