Dexter Fowler Carted Off the Field After Injury at Second Base (UPDATES)

Chicago Cubs

You don’t want to see anyone get hurt, but that’s especially true for beloved former Cubs. It is impossible not to like Dexter Fowler, and I was really rooting for him to have a great year with the Angels after finally being traded by the Cardinals.

But now I’m afraid he won’t get a chance.

Fowler had to be carted off the field after this play at second base:

That’s one of those scary, non-contact-type injuries. I really hope it was not as bad as it looked, or as bad as Fowler reacted, or as bad as it seemed when Fowler was being carted off:

UPDATE: It turns out Fowler is expected to be OK. As bad as it looked, the initial indication is that it’s just a contusion, and Fowler might not even need an IL stint. Thank goodness!

UPDATE 2: Actually, the initial diagnosis was just flat out wrong, and the injury is what it initially looked like: a torn ACL.
