Weekly Prospects Check In: Dustin Fowler

The Yankees have gone through a few valleys and a few peaks throughout my career as a Yankees fan but possibly none more drastic than the 2016 season. The Yankees returned to #TooManyDamnHRs in 2015 while also returning to the postseason only to run into #TooManyDamnRISPFails in 2016 that resulted in a fire sale before the August 1st trade deadline. Now the Yankees find themselves with #TooManyDamnProspects and especially #TooManyDamnOutfielders including Aaron Judge, Clint Frazier, Mason Williams, Ben Gamel, Jake Cave and today's weekly check in showcase (just to name a few) Dustin Fowler.

Fowler seemed like nothing more than a struggling prospect teetering on the line of being an organizational filler prospect before breaking out in a big way throughout the 2015 regular season and into the Arizona Fall League. It was thought that Fowler was down in Arizona to play once or twice a week but like he has a tendency to do lately he pushed the subject and forced his way into the lineup. This is something that has continued throughout the 2016 season with Fowler in Double-A with the Trenton Thunder.

Let's see what Fowler has been up to this season since we haven't checked in with his all season:
