News: Fowler went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Royals. Impact: After a hot start to his season, Fowler has gone ice cold at the plate since missing four games due to a stomach virus. While the Astros' offense is struggling as a whole, Fowler has a mere three hits in his last 36 at-bats. It's possible that he's still not 100 percent, but as long as he's playing, Houston could certainly use a spark from its leadoff hitter.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Impact: Fowler admitted that he's still not 100 percent after a stomach virus forced him to miss five consecutive starts, but he's healthy enough to play without restrictions. The 28-year-old outfielder is batting .438 with four extra-base hits over 16 at-bats on the young season.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler is back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays. Impact: Fowler missed five consecutive starts with a stomach virus, but he was healthy enough to return as a pinch-hitter Tuesday night. He is lined up to play center field and bat leadoff Wednesday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler (illness) was used as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays. Impact: Fowler pinch-hit for Alex Presley with two runners in scoring position and one out in the top of the eighth inning, but grounded into a fielder's choice. He also replaced Presley in center field for the bottom-half of the inning. Fowler is targeting a return to the starting lineup on Wednesday, and the fact that he felt healthy enough to return on Tuesday bodes well for his chances.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler (illness) remains out of the lineup Tuesday. Impact: Robbie Grossman will lead off while Fowler sits for the fifth consecutive game. Alex Presley is handling center field Tuesday night in Fowler's absence.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Fowler (illness) could be back in the Astros' lineup Wednesday if all goes well during pre game warmups Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle's Evan Drellich reports. "Today's the first day I feel like I have some strength to do anything," Fowler said. "I think (returning Wednesday) is what we're looking at. Hopefully I'll be back in there … It's just dependent on how today goes." Impact: We already know he won't be in the lineup Tuesday, with Alex Presley getting the nod in center field, but owners should keep tabs on his status leading up to Wednesday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler (illness) is not in the lineup Monday against the Angels. Impact: Fowler still isn't 100 percent following a bout with gastroenteritis and dehydration, and will miss his fourth straight game as a result. Jonathan Villar will take his spot atop the Astros' batting order once again, while Robbie Grossman takes on center field responsibilities.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler will remain back at home indefinitely while he attempts to recover from a stomach virus, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Fowler was admitted to the hospital Friday with a bout of gastroenteritis and was expected to be good to go Sunday, but he'll need a little more time to get healthy. The Astros haven't decided whether or not he'll join the team for its three-game series in Toronto beginning Tuesday, making him a risky outfielder to use in lineups during the upcoming week.(RotoWire, )
Apr 6, 2014
News: Fowler (illness) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Fowler was just released from the hospital Saturday night. He was treated for gastroenteritis and slight dehydration, so it's not at all surprising that he won't be in the lineup Sunday. Jonathan Villar will lead off in his place, and Alex Presley will take over in center field. Consider Fowler iffy for Monday's contest until more information becomes available.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Fowler will again sit out Saturday versus the Angels due to gastroenteritis, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Fowler is taking a seat for a second consecutive game, though Robbie Grossman will slide over to center field, while L.J. Hoes covers right. Consider Fowler day-to-day for now, but it wouldn't surprise, if he remained sidelined for the entire weekend series.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Fowler (illness) was released from the hospital Saturday night. Impact: You can probably label Fowler as doubtful for Sunday, considering the Astros have a day game. It would be surprising to see a player go from hospital to the lineup in such a short time.(RotoWire, )

Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Fowler continued his strong start with the Astros, going 2 for 4 on Wednesday with a home run. Impact: Fowler could be a solid spark for the Houston lineup if he can stay healthy.
