Dexter Fowler's defensive positioning

Dexter Fowler's defensive positioning

Did playing deeper help Fowler improve his defensive performance? Of the defensive data beginning to trickle out of Statcast, one piece that has been particularly interesting to me is that the starting depth of center fielders seems to have a pretty significant impact on their defensive performance. New Cardinal Dexter Fowler is one of the most interesting test cases. Fowler has been a poor center fielder by metrics like UZR and DRS throughout his career. In 2015 - the first year for which we have Statcast data - he played the shallowest center field in the National League. In...

Dexter Fowler is an Investment in the Future

Dexter Fowler is an Investment in the Future

A slightly different way to look at the Cardinals’ newest acquisition. It is official: Dexter Fowler is now a St. Louis Cardinal. I have the Cardinal site open in another tab, listening to the press conference. I watched long enough to see Fowler put on his jersey and his hat, and then navigated over here to add my two cents to the pile. Fowler seems like a nice guy, from what I can hear. I like him already, on a personal level at least. We’ll see how the defensive metrics tell me to feel about him in July. I’m going to admit right now that I have been very lukewarm on the idea of...

Cardinals sign Dexter Fowler, so what’s next?

Cardinals sign Dexter Fowler, so what’s next?

The Cardinals made one addition, but still need more. The long-stated purpose of the Cardinals this offseason has been to get a center fielder. Dexter Fowler is a center fielder, and fits that stated need. The Cardinals can now move Randal Grichuk to left field. Whether Fowler is an upgrade from Grichuk in center field is debatable, but he certainly improves the defense from where it was last season. While Fowler fits a need in the outfield and at the top of the lineup, he is a slightly above average player and the gap between the Cardinals and Cubs didn’t move a lot. They still need to...

Cardinals news and notes: Fowler, Wong, hot stove

Obviously the big news from yesterday is that we learned the Cardinals are on the verge of signing Dexter Fowler. A press conference is scheduled at Busch Stadium this morning at 10 am St. Louis time. This is good news for the Cardinals and even better news for every obnoxious jerk on the internet whose opinion of this signing will be validated every time Fowler does something good/bad. Looking forward to that. Also, John Fleming had the scoop on the Fowler signing shortly after word of Fowler’s pending physical in St. Louis leaked. And here’s what else you may have missed yesterday at...

Dexter Fowler to have physical in St. Louis tomorrow

The highly-coveted Cubs center fielder could be on the verge of arriving in St. Louis As first reported by KSDK sports director Frank Cusumano, the Cardinals have confirmed that free-agent centerfielder Dexter Fowler, most recently of the Chicago Cubs, will undergo a physical in St. Louis tomorrow. While this is not an absolute guarantee that Fowler will be signing with the Cardinals, it is certainly a sign that the Cardinals could be nearing an end of their much-noted pursuit of an upgrade in center field. Last season, Fowler was a key contributor to the Chicago Cubs team that won its...
