Profile: From his surprise entrance in spring training to his lead-off home run in Game 7 of the World Series, Dexter Fowler was a catalyst at the top of the order for the Chicago Cubs. Always the patient hitter, Fowler is exactly the type that any team would proudly boast at the top of their lineup. He swung at only 39% of pitches, with a minuscule 8.0% swinging strike rate. That lent itself to a 14.3% walk rate that ranked fifth among major league outfielders on his way to a .393 on-base percentage, representing a career mark for him. We also saw the power stroke more than we've become accustomed to with Fowler, as he posted a .171 isolated power that was his highest mark since 2012, totaling 13 home runs, 25 doubles, and seven triples. That almost equaled his power production from 2015 in nearly 140 fewer at-bats due to injury. His two years in Chicago saw Fowler post his lowest swing rates and highest contact rates of his career. Only two outfielders in the NL have walked more than Fowler in the last two years. That should bode well as he moves to the top of another offensively stout lineup in St. Louis. (Randy Holt)

The Quick Opinion: Dexter Fowler represented the ideal presence at the top of the Chicago lineup in 2016, seeing a lot of pitches, with a 14.3% walk rate, and making a lot of contact, while generating more power than we've seen from him, as indicated by his highest ISO (.171) since 2012. His keen batting eye and added pop should mean big things for him in a new setting in 2017.
