Fowler has been nothing short of excellent this season in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In 70 games, the 22 year-old has slashed .293/.329/.542 with 13 home runs and 43 runs batted in.
The left-handed hitting outfielder was New York’s 18th round selection in the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
In a corresponding move, Tyler Austin is headed to the disabled list. Austin underwent an MRI for a hamstring issue earlier today and the results have not yet been released to the public.
