The center fielder, hitting .253 entering Sunday's series finale against the Pirates, leads the team in doubles (nine) and walks (17), but he has also struck out a National League-leading 34 times.
Rockies manager Jim Tracy said there has been a "gestation period" for Fowler, who has provided stellar play in center field since his rookie season in 2009. So the Rockies have dealt with a more incremental process at the plate, as Fowler has locked down center field.
"There's been moments of brillance," Tracy said. "The strikeout total is high, absolutely, for a leadoff hitter. But somewhere along the line as we continue to go forward, there will be a leveling off period, and I think we'll end up having ourselves a very consistent leadoff hitter."
For his part, Fowler believes increased at-bats will be the key to that consistency.
"I try to take it day-by-day, at-bat by at-bat," Fowler said. "It's a work in progress. I work on every aspect."
