  • John Mozeliak Calls Out Dexter Fowler's Effort Level

Mozeliak said he "can't defend" the hustle and work of the outfielder, who's enduring his worst season since his rookie campaign.

The 32-year-old Fowler is in perhaps the worst slump of his Major League Baseball career, batting a miserable.171/.276/.278 with five homers and 20 RBIs this season.

Cubs fans will always remember him as the "you go, we go" leadoff hitter who began Game 7 with a homer off Corey Kluber. "I think he would tell you that it's hard to do that when you're not playing and not playing on a consistent basis".

"But I've also had a lot of people come up to me and question his effort and his energy level". And those are things that I can't defend.

Harrison Bader, Marcell Ozuna and Tommy Pham make up the St. Louis outfield at the moment.

Joe Maddon began and ended his 11-minute session with the Chicago media Tuesday morning by addressing the ongoing Fowler drama in St. Louis.

"I think everyone just needs to take a hard look in the mirror and decide what they want that next chapter to look like", Mozeliak added. "And in Dexter's case, maybe taking a brief time out, trying to reassess himself, and then give him a chance for a strong second half is probably what's best for everybody".

Fowler, who has struggled all season, was on paternity leave Monday when Mozeliak ripped the outfielder in comments during his weekly interview for the regional sports network in St. Louis. He and I had great conversations all the time.

Fowler is a career.263 hitter, a one-time All-Star and a World Series victor, so he's clearly not a player who lacks talent. There was at least an outside perception that his style of play and lack of outward energy meant the level of effort wasn't quite where it should be.
