According to Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle, Astros outfielder Dexter Fowler missed last night’s game against the Angels due to a stomach bug and was taken to a Houston hospital.

Astros manager Bo Porter said Friday afternoon that Fowler had a stomach issue related to dehydration, but no other details are available. It’s unclear when he’ll be ready to rejoin the team.

Acquired from the Rockies over the winter, Fowler has enjoyed a quick start with his new team. The 28-year-old is 6-for-12 (.500) with one home run, two doubles, one triple, two RBI, and five runs scored through three games.

    Oh man… This virus is truly the most irritating and probably the worse virus that ever struck to me. God I still remember the pain it given me last month and couldn’t get enough sleep cause every time I lay down my stomach is begging me to go to the CR…

    Fowler should have drowned some of the Johnnie Walker Double Black he gave Derek Jeter.
    But, if it is indeed related to dehydration, maybe he indulged in one too many of the good stuff.

    True gutter wrestlers don’t suffer from dehydration, they embrace it.
