I don't think it's just UZR. Fowler grades badly in Defensive Runs Saved and FRAA, and has done so pretty much his entire time in the majors. If he would be replacement level in another park, and I think he may be higher potentially, then he's a 4-5 win player unless his bat falls off. I take defensive stats from weird outfields like Coors with a grain of salt.
