Weekly AFL Check In: Dustin Fowler

Every team has the opportunity to send up to eight prospects to the Arizona Fall League every single season with the knowledge that one of the players would be used sparingly. That player this season was Dustin Fowler which is why we never checked in on him weekly like we did Gary Sanchez, Ian Clarkin, Domingo Acevedo, Tyler Austin, Tyler Webb, Tyler Wade and Chaz Hebert. Now that the AFL regular season is wrapped up and the championship game is being played, by the way the Surprise Saguaros and the Yankees prospects will be in the championship game so check that out, we can do a bit of a weekly AFL recap rather than check in with Mr. Fowler.

Fowler made the most of his limited opportunities in the AFL and hit for a surprising bit of power as a member of the Saguaros. His numbers will look skewed due to sample size but he wouldn’t be here had he not caught the eyes of the New York Yankees organization. Fowler had a free pass to take it easy down in Arizona and once again opened the eyes of the Yankees front office and advanced scouting teams thus setting himself up for a bright future in New York potentially.

Dustin Fowler:

Games: 15
At Bats: 57
AVG: .281
OBP: .305
SLG: .421
OPS: .726
H: 16
HR: 2
RBI: 7
BB: 2
K: 9
