Description: Astros center fielder Dexter Fowler was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with a stiff neck, according to Brian McTaggary of mlb.com. The move was precautionary and Fowler should be back in the lineup soon.
Insight: The 27-year-old Fowler hit .263 with 12 homers, 19 steals, 71 runs and a .776 OPS with Colorado last season, but his numbers were boosted by a .311 average and an .874 OPS at Coors Field. In fact, he owns a career .298 average, 27 homers and an .880 OPS at Coors compared to .241, 13 HR and a .694 OPS everywhere else. His pronounced splits make him unlikely to duplicate last season's numbers with the Astros.
