News: Fowler (back) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday and is in the starting lineup. Impact: As expected, Fowler will return to the lineup, and will bat in the cleanup spot for the Astros on Wednesday. Now that he has returned, it will be interesting to see what the Astros decide to do in the outfield. Marc Krauss is the odd man out Wednesday, with Jake Marisnick sliding over to right field, Robbie Grossman moving to left and Fowler playing center.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler (back) will be activated from the DL on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Impact: Fowler joined Triple-A Oklahoma City last Thursday to begin a rehab assignment, a little over five weeks after hitting the DL with a right intercostal strain, and he's since played in four games without any sort of setback. The Astros acquired Jake Marisnick from the Marlins at the deadline, and it's not entirely clear how manager Bo Porter plans on divvying up the playing time upon Fowler's return. It's possible Marisnick could be sent down, but it seems more likely that the two will split time in center.(RotoWire, )

If the exam goes swimmingly, he could be activated from the DL as early as Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Fowler (back) went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles in his first rehab game Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Impact: The Astros will likely give Fowler a few games at Triple-A to get comfortable at the plate again before activating him in the near future.(RotoWire, )
