FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ORIOLES NET DEXTER FOWLER WITH THREE-YEAR DEAL

The Baltimore Orioles continued their bargain shopping on Tuesday as they agreed to terms on a three-year deal for around $35 million with outfielder Dexter Fowler.  This just two days after the Orioles signed free agent starter Yovani Gallardo to a separate three-year deal that is pending more physicals.  Fowler comes off his best season ever in 2015 when he batted out of the leadoff spot for the Cubs and supplied solid power/speed production. 

Analysis:  The Orioles are "That" team in terms of taking advantage of the cheap prices for the remaining free agents with spring training underway.  They get a proven leadoff guy in Fowler who, despite some shaky batting averages, is quite capable of going 15/15 with a high amount of runs.  He is right there as a very steady outfielder 3 in fantasy baseball this season.
