We gotta watch that Dexter Fowler catch again - A Hunt and Peck


MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Dexter Fowler has taken a lot of heat for his defense in the past. Some criticism was fair, some less so. 2018 overall was just not a kind year to Dex, but luckily things seem to be turning around for him in 2019. Not only is he hitting better at the plate, but he has turn things up in the field.

On Monday evening Miles Mikolas threw an eight-hit shutout against the Pirates. Eight hits is quite a few to surrender and not give up an runs. Some strong defense behind him probably had a bit to do with that, especially this double play started by Fowler that was so delightful, we have to watch it again.
