TGP Prospects Month Top 29 Prospect List - #7 Dustin Fowler

I will be completely honest, I didn't really know who Dustin Fowler was before the Arizona Fall League. Sure I saw his name when the team drafted him in the 18th round of the 2013 MLB First Year Players Draft and sure I saw him on weekly or nightly recaps around the Yankees Prospects universe but I never truly paid attention to him, unfortunately, until his admittance to this season's AFL. Fowler was sent down to the Surprise Saguaros to be a rarely used player, a fill-in or a bench player, and he made the best of the opportunity down there while simultaneously putting his name on the map as far as prospects go.

Fowler has spent time with the Gulf Coast Yankees, Charleston Riverdogs and Tampa Yankees but his true success came as a member of the Surprise Saguaros. Fowler played a great center field, he hit for both average and power and he showed off his speed and strengths in all facets of the game. Not every Yankees outfielder will wear Yankees pinstripes but Fowler has a better shot than most. The talent is there and while he is a far way off right now all signs point to him now being on the fast track to the Bronx and Yankee Stadium.
