Think the Rockies have enough young talent already in the big leagues? There's more on the way. Fowler had the opportunity to play basketball at Harvard or baseball at Miami, but the Rockies were able to convince him to sign. He's learned how to switch-hit as a professional and has taken to it fairly well. He's got room to add strength and pop at the plate and can run exceptionally well, something that will help him on the basepaths as well as in center field, where he profiles as a graceful and well above-average defender.

A broken hamate bone cut Fowler's 2007 season with Modesto in the Class A Advanced California League short in June. He made up for some lost at-bats in the Arizona Fall League, though much of that was likely spent regaining his timing at the plate. Still, it should be enough to allow the future five-tool, Gold Glove-caliber center fielder to move up to Double-A to start the 2008 season.
