Dexter Fowler Injury: Fowler Removed From Game With Blurred Vision

If the Colorado Rockies are going to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers, they will be forced to do so without Dexter Fowler. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, Fowler was removed from the game because of some side effects from being hit in the head by a throw from A.J. Ellis:
