The Cardinals made their second signing of the 2016 offseason, this time making a large splash in landing Dexter Fowler, who had spent his last couple seasons in Chicago. The Cubs signed both John Lackey and Jason Heyward last offseason, both former Cardinals. Now, a little taste of revenge with the Cardinals landing Dexter Fowler.

He’s played for Chicago, Colorado, and Houston in his 9 year career. He made his first All-Star game in 2016 with the Cubbies.

Fowler will replace Brandon Moss and Matt Holliday, who in 890 At Bats had a combined WAR of 2.1, while Dexter Fowler, in over 500 ABs at a WAR of 4.7, big upgrade for Cards. Last season, his slash line was .276/.393/.447, pretty good in comparison to Holliday/Moss. He hit 13 home runs and had 48 RBIs, he did only play 125 games.

Nice signing for the Cardinals, expect Fowler to be a good fit in St.Louis. Lots of good, even juicier Cardinals/Cubs games this season and in the future. Looks like he will be the next CF and leadoff hitter in St.Louis.
