CARDS’ FOWLER HOPES SHORT MEMORY WILL INCREASE PRODUCTION

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Dexter Fowler is taking the best piece of hitting advice he has ever received and applying it to his entire spring training approach.

“Have a short memory,” Fowler said.

Fowler had a 2018 worth forgetting.

A career .262 hitter with an on-base percentage of .360, Fowler hit only .180 with an on-base percentage below .300 while battling nagging injuries much of the year. A foul ball that broke his foot ended Fowler’s season in early August, limiting him to 90 games - his lowest single-season total since the year he broke into the big leagues.

Dexter Fowler then promptly forgot who he was, where he was, who he was talking to, and the difference between his left and his right.
