2017 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: DUSTIN FOWLER OUTFIELDER NEW YORK YANKEES

At this rate, the New York Yankees will run out of players from the minor league system.  Another day and another top prospect did the team call up on Thursday; this time 22-year-old outfielder Dustin Fowler who will help make up for the absences of Matt Holliday, Starlin Castro, Aaron Hicks, and Tyler Austin.  A former 2013 18th round pick, Fowler was not always as highly regarded prospect in the Yankees' system but his adept hitting and smooth glove put him on the map.  2016 at Double-A is what really got the Fowler ETA clock going as he hit .281 with 12 home runs and 25 stolen bases in 574 at-bats.  While he was allergic to walks, Fowler was a high-contact guy who put up a very shallow 15.0 K/9 rate.  2017 was just as impressive as Fowler put up a 13/13 ratio in home runs/steals and he threw in a .293 average at Triple-A.  Those are very fantasy friendly numbers to say the least and those skills should make Fowler a guy to add in all formats.  Of course Fowler will likely go down as soon as the walking wounded return but in the short-term he could supply a nice boost.
