The Chicago Cubs announced on Thursday, July 7, that All-Star outfielder Dexter Fowler has been assigned to the South Bend Cubs for a weekend rehabilitation assignment.

“Many fans in South Bend have been waiting for this moment since the announcement of our affiliation with the Chicago Cubs. This assignment would not have happened unless the organization had faith in our ability to take care of their greatest assets, their Minor and Major League players.” said Andrew Berlin, Owner of the South Bend Cubs.

Before going on the disabled list on June 18 with hamstring tightness, Fowler was batting .290 with seven home runs and 28 RBI in 64 games for Chicago. He was originally drafted in the 14th round of the 2004 Draft by the Colorado Rockies, making his Major League debut with the club on September 2, 2008.

“Four Winds Field will certainly be buzzing with excitement this weekend,” said Team President Joe Hart. “While we are down to lawn seating on Friday and Sunday, the outfield lawn areas may be more popular this weekend with the All-Star playing in center field.”

Tickets for this weekend’s games can be purchased at the Four Winds Field Box Office, by calling (574) 235-9988 or online.
