FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE SIGNING: DEXTER FORWLER JOINING DIVISION RIVAL CARDINALS

Having saved himself with a last-minute decision to pull out of going to the Baltimore Orioles as a fourth outfielder, Dexter Fowler made the most of another chance to bat leadoff for the Chicago Cubs in 2016.  While Fowler never turned into the star many made him out to be during his early Colorado Rockie days, he still had reached the level of being a firm outfielder 3 who could help in multiple categories.  Over the last two years, Fowler has posted 17/20 and 13/13 splits in his power/speed game and that is a fantasy-friendly combination to say the least.  The batting average is the epitome of mediocre as Fowler's .276 mark last season pretty much represents a best-case scenario there and he is no spring chicken anymore in turning 31 this March.  Nothing much changing in this offensive profile, even after signing a few free agent deal with the St. Louis Cardinals.  

2017 PROJECTION:  .271 14 HR 46 RBI 88 R 15 SB

  1. He's an older Adam Eaton with a higher contract but without losing top tier prospects. That's the difference b/w the Cards and Nats management!

    1. Totally agree. Nats panicked and overpaid.
