Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Excels in leadoff role in first spring game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fowler drew a pair of walks, scored twice and stole a base in Saturday's 8-7 Grapefruit League loss to the Marlins.

You could hardly have drawn up Fowler's debut as the new Cardinals leadoff man any better, as both of his at-bats had a positive impact on the scoreboard. He draw a five-pitch free pass in the first, promptly swiped second, and then eventually came around to score on Matt Carpenter's sacrifice fly. Following his second walk, Fowler came home again courtesy of Carpenter on the latter's third-inning two-run blast. Even though he only took two swings overall, Fowler was nevertheless very satisfied with his debut. "The way we manufactured that run in the first inning was key. If we can do that we'll win a lot of games."

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Expected to provide multiple benefits in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fowler, who inked a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Cardinals in December, is expected to improve the team in several ways, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. "I think he's going to be a great fit, all the way around, in this community, on this team, in the lineup, in our clubhouse," manager Mike Matheny said. "[I'm] very, very excited about having him with us."

The veteran outfielder, who helped the Cubs to their first championship since 1908 last season, was brought to the division-rival Cardinals with the aim of improving the team's outfield defense, as well as to serve as a dynamic leadoff presence. The Cubs were notably 64-20 when Fowler had at least one hit last season, a testament to his table-setting skills at the top of the order. Additionally, his .367 career OBP when leading off ranks him as the fourth-best in that category for players with a minimum of 820 plate appearances since his rookie 2008 campaign. Fowler's savvy on the basepaths, which includes eight consecutive seasons with double-digit swipes, is also highly coveted by his new team, considering the Cardinals were last in the NL with 35 stolen bases in 2016. A residual benefit of his presence atop the lineup is that Matt Carpenter, who's served in that role for the last four seasons, will be able to slot into a spot more conducive to run production. Meanwhile, Fowler's ability to lock down center field will shift Randal Grichuk to left, where his glove will be considered an upgrade over the likes of the departed duo of Matt Holliday and Brandon Moss, who started a combined 143 games at the position in 2016.

Cardinals' Dexter Fowler: Inks five-year deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Cardinals on Friday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

He receives a full no-trade clause as part of the deal, representing the biggest free agent signing for the Cardinals in recent memory. Last season he was one of the lynchpins in one of the best offenses in baseball as the leadoff hitter for the Cubs, and the Cardinals will ask him to do the same thing heading forward. Fowler has hit 12-plus home runs and stolen 13 or more bases in three of the past four seasons, making him one of the better bets in baseball to tally double digits in both categories in 2017. He could also represent a good source of runs. Look for Fowler to play center field every day with Tommy Pham now serving as the Cardinals' fourth outfielder.

Dexter Fowler: Has deal in place with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler has a deal in place with the Cardinals, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Fowler is en route to St. Louis for his physical, having received an "over-the-top offer" from the Cardinals. The deal is expected to be formally announced Friday. Fowler missed some time with a hamstring issue in 2016, but he was a force atop the lineup when healthy, batting .276/.393/.447. His excellent on-base skills and ability to hit from both sides of the plate should keep him in the leadoff spot on an everyday basis.

Dexter Fowler: Being targeted by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rumors are swirling that Fowler is a subject of interest in Toronto, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

The Jays are looking to acquire a left-handed-hitting leadoff man with a strong OBP, and Fowler is the perfect fit on the free-agent market. The outfielder's .393 OBP in 2016 ranked sixth in the NL, while his 79 walks in the regular season were eighth in the league. Only four of his 456 at-bats in 2016 came outside of the top spot, and Fowler slashed a solid .277/.393/.449 as the Cubs' leadoff man.
